Alright this one is on behalf of my infamous fam back in NYC. If any of you know what the fuck is up, then you are down with the SMART CREW. They keep it gritty just like us, but for the holidays, instead of taking like us, they are giving. AwWww~~ So peep the realness, yo.


Graffiti gives back to NYC this Holiday Season!

New York, NY, December 1, 2008 – Who said graffiti could only have a negative affect on the community? This Holiday Season, the Smart Crew is proud to announce the commencement of a special new holiday tradition through the launch of SMART CREW CARES, a creative, multi-faceted campaign designed to give back to New York City. In the spirit of giving and receiving essential to the holiday season, the Smart Crew has set up dozens of “Donation/Redemption Centers” throughout the five boroughs in an effort to provide members of the New York City community with indispensable items that they will cherish forever (or just have temporary fun with.)

From Dec 1, 2008—Jan 3, 2009, everyone is encouraged to donate (anything that someone else may want) to these boxes. Donatable items can include anything from canned goods to new skis (Please, no garbage). Those in need can redeem gifts donated to the Centers with a limited edition SMART CREW CARES voucher/postcard (cards seen on website: These cards will be randomly distributed for free throughout the city so keep an eye out for them (one gift per voucher please; don’t be greedy.) To kick off the program, Smart Crew has donated many items including brand new PS2 games, MINT condition Ralph Lauren clothing, Presto white out pens, “Idiot’s Guide to Investing in Stocks,” Brooklyn Brewery beer tokens, NYPD shot glasses, 2009 Day Planners, Dutchmasters, Phillies, Smart Crew t-shirts, Stickers, Fat Caps, canned food, and much more!

The one-of-a-kind, postcard/vouchers, may also be used as mail-able gifts for friends and family—You can even collect or eBay these limited edition cards for extra cash. Smart Crew is aware that times are tough in this recession, and wants to help all those who are not as fortunate. The SMART CREW CARES program ends January 3, 2009. All items remaining in the drop boxes will be donated to a charity of our choice. In the spirit of the Holidays, please donate to SMART CREW CARES today!
