Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country, a dead Kennedy once told me.
Empty Kingdom says
-Ask not what your website can do for you, but what it can do for humanity.
But what does that mean? It means that our personal pursuits to become the greatest artists we can be, to share our inspirations with others, and our desire to create a network of the best artists in the world is...not enough. In fact, it means nothing.
We at Empty Kingdom now believe our work must be fused with a mission, that our work is greater then us, and our company must be
propelled by a purpose greater than simply sharing "the cool" with people...but more on that in a few days.
This Christmas we are supporting the homeless cause in America. With over 670,000 counted homeless in 2009, we have a serious problem.
This year we gave a bunch of clothes to the homeless (thanks to the Greig, Quintana, Moglia, Benson, Thompson, Lee, Lee, Chang, Kang, Kim, and Charalambous families for helping out by donating clothes!)
But that's just the beginning. 2011 will see much more altruistic behavior from Empty Kingdom. We plan on setting the standard for all art sites.
One of our good friends Gangsta Fish is working on a documentary to spotlight this problem. It's called Bums the Movie
. He has interviews with Noam Chompsky
, Howard Zinn
(right before he passed, RIP), and many more intelligent caring and artistic people who you should listen to.
So here's the deal. You help his cause by joining his Facebook
or donating directly
, and we will reward you. If you join his Facebook or donate less then $20, we will individually spotlight you on our own facebook and website; which will be good exposure for you as an artist or your company. If you donate $20 or more then we will do the same plus send you a limited edition Empty Kingdom t-shirt plus a secret goodie from our office (which could be Konahrtist's old sock but shit it's still a goodie).
So send us a message if you are interested in helping or if you have helped and want some due props. We'll be around. 2011 and the dawn of a new era is right around the corner. Stay tuned, we have a new announcement to make as well!
And remember. If you are here, we are everywhere.
