UPDATE 7/24: Concepts was able to raise $133,000+ for the Cambridge chapter of My Brother's Keeper. Also due to the over 5,000 participants and 32,000+ tickets sold, Concepts selected not one, but two winners.

Boston-based retailer Concepts has announced a new archival sneaker raffle to support the Black Lives Matter movement.

Released in December of 2018, the Concepts x Nike SB Dunk Low "Green Lobster" and "Purple Lobster" added to the red, blue and yellow variations of their "Lobster" collaborations with Nike SB. Now, the brand is offering a lucky raffle winner the chance to win both pairs with special packaging in their size (men's 7-13).

In order to bring about racial equality, Concepts will be donating 100% of the proceeds to the Cambridge, Massachusetts chapter of My Brother's Keeper. The initiative was started by President Obama in 2014 and supports young men and women of color by disrupting and breaking down barriers they face in an economical, social and educational setting.

The raffle will commence on July 13 and close on July 19. Concepts will sell each ticket for $5. Special rates include 5 tickets for $20, 10 tickets for $40 and 20 tickets for $75. You will be able to purchase the tickets via once the raffle is live. There is no limit to the amount of tickets you can purchase. The winner will be emailed and the Concepts IG will announce the winner on July 24. Concepts will also host two more archival raffles to benefit the Black Lives Matter movement afterwards. While you wait for the raffle to go live, take a look at the BLM resources the Concepts team has put together on their website.

Raffle period: 7/13/20 (Monday) - 7/19/20 (Sunday)
