Announcing the StockX + Eminem Hurricane Relief Campaign Winners
This past month, the country was hit with not one, but two catastrophic hurricanes. Everyone reacts differently when confronted with tragedy. Some rush into action. Some withdraw into despair. And some partner with Eminem and 16 celebrities to give away rare and expensive sneakers.
Yesterday marked the conclusion of our first-ever Hurricane Relief Campaign, and we are thrilled to report it was an extraordinary success.
4,773 different people, representing all fifty states and the District of Columbia, made donations of $10 or more. We even managed to raise over $9,000 from the international community, despite the fact that only U.S. residents were eligible to win, with 373 individuals from 47 different countries generously chipping in (shoutout Malaysia!).
All in all, we received more than $146,580 in individual donations. And because Eminem’s Marshall Mathers Foundation and Parsons Xtreme Golf (PXG) agreed to match what we raised, the grand total going to hurricane relief is now $439,740!
This money will be split between two extraordinary charities: the Greater Houston Community Foundation (GHCF) and Team Rubicon. (For the official rules, click here. UPDATE: This contest is now closed). And now, without further ado, here are the winners:
Thanks to everyone to who donated. And a special thanks to the 17 friends who gifted their shoes to the campaign: Pharrell, LeBron James, Mark Wahlberg, Snoop Dogg, Virgil Abloh, DJ Skee, Steve Aoki, 2 Chainz, Don C, Jon Buscemi, Karlie Kloss, Gary Vaynerchuk, Stadium Goods, Emily Oberg, Russell Wilson, Steph Curry and – last but not least – Eminem.
