It is a great honor to partner with KIND’s Do the KIND Thing program and be able to give back to the city that has been so wonderful to me for the past couple of years. Our foundation will continue to have a presence here, even as I head to Atlanta. Through the partnership with Do the KIND Thing, we will be able to provide new school uniforms to hundreds of children in Chicago as they head back to school this year.

Tomorrow is the day, we are excited to be apart of helping these girls experience the show, and also get each of them one of our shirts! For more details on the show, read below! Thanks for the opportunity SAIC.
The School of the Art Institute of Chicago presents its 77th annual fashion show, which we are extremely happy to be apart of, Fashion 2011, on Thursday, May 5, 2011. We will be sponsoring more than 35 Chicago-area high school students, who for the first time will be in attendance.
Students from Chicago’s Young Women’s Leadership Charter School andMarwen, a not-for-profit arts-based community organization, will have the opportunity to attend one of the afternoon shows, experiencing all the excitement of a professional fashion show—stunning design, tight choreography, exquisite garments, and cutting-edge looks—by SAIC students who incorporate and combine techniques from the fields of sculpture, performance, art, design, technology, architecture, and installation.
“Sometimes, all a child needs is the opportunity to believe in themselves. We are excited to help students experience art by means of a professionally staged fashion show. The chance to see amazing work, created by SAIC students only a few years older than themselves, will surely impact and inspire their own creativity, perhaps igniting their dreams into possibilities.”
Kyle and the Chicago Bulls are teaming up with Operation Warm® to host a coat drive on Saturday, January 1 to provide new winter coats for children with the Midtown Educational Foundation.
Prior to the tip-off of the Bulls’ home game against the Cleveland Cavaliers, fans are encouraged to drop off new children’s winter coats at any of the United Center admission gates (gates open at 4:30 p.m.).
Fans who attend the game and donate a new children’s coat or donate $15 or more will receive a ticket which will allow them to get an autograph from Korver after the game.
Monetary donations to Operation Warm in conjunction with the coat drive will also be collected at the gates that night. Fans not attending that evening’s game can still assist in the collection by making a donation in the virtual coat drive at Bulls.com/coatdrive. Each $15 donation will provide a high quality, new winter coat to a child supported by the Midtown Educational Foundation.
Here are a couple, we have plenty more, they will be uploaded to the flick’r stream, and you can find them all at www.facebook.com/kylekorver26
