About the #blitchfund
What is the #blitchFund?
The #BLITCHFUND (The "Black Witch" Fund) is a permanent Pan-African philanthropic fund created in 2016 to assist low-income black families (especially black women head of households) with securing life's basic necessities: rent, food, water, utilities, and transportation.
The recipients of the fund are predominantly black women, and practitioners of African/Afro-Diasporic spiritual systems.
Through private contributions and collective fundraising, the #BLITCHFUND has been able to impact the lives of black families in the U.S., the Caribbean, and Continental Africa.
Black Witch PHILANTHROPY: groundwork over aesthetics
If your Hoodoo doesn't serve the Black community financially, we don't want it.
In the tradition of authentic Conjure (Hoodoo, Rootwork), the success of the community and the cultivation of it's shared children is of paramount importance. We know that we can not actualize the empowered future our Ancestors fought for, if we as descendants are perpetually in states of imposed displacement, poverty, and lack.
To the demise of BIPOC, the modern commercialized and culturally-appropriated perspective of Hoodoo silences and erases this critical history of this community-based spiritual system.
So in the vein of conjuring a culturally-accurate Hoodoo community, #BLITCHFUND founder Daizy Latifah initiated a private fund with her own monies, to ensure that low-income Black women (the actual purveyors of Hoodoo in this country) have access to a jump-start at the successful life that is still rightfully owed to them.
