How cool is this? I just received the following email about a big giveaway taking place this Saturday, September 23. I blog a lot about safety, personal security and building safe neighborhoods. It must have gotten someone's attention because they reached out to me to share this information with you. In the spirit of "things I should not tell you but should keep a secret between me and my 399 closest friends," here's the message:
Hi Rooted In Chicago,
Sorry I don’t know your actual name [Urban Landlady note: that's funny]! I wanted to reach out and let you know about Chicago Safe, as well as offer an invite to come and attend the special donation event taking place on Saturday, September 23 at Powell Elementary School in South Shore, with doors opening at 10am.
Canary, the smart home security company, teamed up with Chicago Bulls’ point guard Kris Dunn and 7th Ward Alderman Greg Mitchell, to donate 400 security cameras to residents in Chicago’s South Side, as part of an effort to empower the community and ensure that everyone has the safe home, and peace of mind, they deserve.
Canary has been closely following the news in Chicago’s South Side, and it rocked their core ethos – that everyone has a right to be secure. As a company with a mission to make home security smart, simple, and affordable for everyone, and decided to work alongside local leaders to do their part in helping the Chicago community with a major donation.
I’ve also included some of the finer details below:
- What: Chicago Safe – special donation event of 400 security cameras to residents of Chicago’s South Side
- Where: Powell Elementary School - 7511 S. South Shore Drive, Chicago, IL 60649
- When: 10am – 12:30pm CST
- Canary, the smart home security company
- Chicago Bulls’ point guard Kris Dunn
- 7th Ward Alderman Greg Mitchell
Thought you might be interested in the event based off your ChicagoNow blog!
This is my first time hearing of this company, but who can argue with receiving a FREE home security camera? Plus, the event will be hosted by 7th Ward Chicago Alderman Greg Mitchell and Bull's point guard Kris Dunn. So if you go to this event and it's not what you expected, I don't know, write your alderman and stop going to Bulls games. Don't blame me. I'm just sharing information. (smile)
I have not received any compensation for this post but regular readers know I make it a point to share information that might be helpful. If I can help anyone make their area safer I'm all for it. Each neighborhood area made safer leads to a stronger city overall. Hopefully I can make it to this event on Saturday. If not, that's one extra security system for YOU!
