The Wu-Tang Clan is raising cash to assistance three Ottawa charities “Triumph” about COVID-19.
The New York City-dependent rap collective announced its formal partnership with the CHEO, the Ottawa Meals Lender and the Ottawa Mission shelter Wednesday early morning.
The group is marketing T-shirts, hand sanitizer and foods as a result of their on-line 36 Chambers retail outlet, with proceeds from all three items heading to the charities.
The Wu-Tang Clan began supporting the Ottawa Meals Lender on April 2, after they were tagged in a tweet by Adam Miron, a community businessman.
The group replied to Miron’s tweet stating they had contributed to the Meals Lender, and encouraging other folks to be part of them.
The rap group said that led to an more $280,000 currently being donated inside of the next 48 hours.
Regarded hip-hop pioneers after their debut album Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) in 1993, the Wu-Tang Clan attracts resourceful inspiration from kung fu motion pictures, Buddhism and comedian guides.
All revenue from sales of a T-shirt with the Wu-Tang Clan’s distinct yellow and black “W” logo, altered to say Ottawa in its centre, will go to the Ottawa Meals Lender.
Happy to support the launch of #ABetterTomorrow collection!
A hand sanitizer referred to as Secure Ya Fingers — a reference to the group’s hit single Secure Ya Neck — is currently being created for the Wu-Tang Clan by Jusu Physique, a Victoria-dependent producer.
For each and every bottle procured, one more will be donated to The Ottawa Mission Basis and other homeless shelters throughout Canada, with more revenue currently being donated to the shelters.
The Saga Continues Bowl will be bought by Pure Kitchen dining establishments in the Ottawa space, with the Wu-Tang Clan stating they will donate all their revenue from the bowls to foods for entrance-line staff at CHEO.
