On July 28th, Nakoma PR hosted the first PB&Jams, a #hashtaglunchbag event at Cocoa Cinnamon Lakewood. Bringing the #hashtaglunchbag events to the Durham area was important. #hashtaglunchbag is a national humanity service movement dedicated to empowering and inspiring humanity to reap the benefits of giving through the use of social media. Through the creation of bagged lunches, complete with love messages, these are used as a vessel to spread love and inspire others.
Along with our partners The Lux Blog, Carolina Waves, Beauties with Brains, Dope Cause we Said, and Cocoa Cinnamon, we had an amazing turnout! The goal was to make just 100 sandwiches, but we were able to TRIPLE that, and get an amazing amount of donations, including bottled water, washcloths, hygiene items, canned food, snacks, and more. All items were donated to Urban Ministries of Durham.
We had some amazing giveaways and goodies from The Bulls of Durham, Trendy Nailz Institute, Art of Cool Festival, Dreamville Fest, and more! Thank you to Gemynii for being an amazing DJ, and Mir.I.Am for being a wonderful partner and host!
WRAL even stopped by to record the action and chat about the event! I'm so amazed at the overwhelming support on this event - I can't wait to plan the next one! Let's work to create impactful change together!
