In 2022, all proceeds from film submission fees and concert tickets, as well as additional donations will be gifted to Hope for Houston, a non-profit organization which aims to provide personal care items to the homeless community in Houston.

"Homeless Outreach Providing Essentials for Houston is a secular 501(c)(3) nonprofit street outreach initiative which provides personal care items and first aid to our most vulnerable neighbors. We want to spread our message of compassion without judgment and believe that small actions can make a difference in lives and in the community. Through advocacy and outreach activities, our team of volunteers works seamlessly to contribute their part to the greater good."
