Deanne's Hoodies 4 Homeless

Every Day Is A Good Day To Give
Help The Homeless With A Hoodie Or Blanket
You can also contribute to the Deanne Hastings Memorial Fund

Acts of kindness, random or not, go a long way. Select your Deanne's Hoodies 4 Homeless donation and I will personally hand-deliver one of my hoodies or a blanket to a homeless person in Balboa Park or neighboring San Diego community + I will also send you a gift pack for your act of kindness. I know what it feels like to have nothing, and I know the difference it makes to have someone offer you a little comfort on a rainy day.  

Help me share the love and Deanne's story


Hoodies 4 Homeless charity program by Carini Arts


I created "Deanne's Hoodies 4 Homeless" in honor of Deanne Hastings, my best friend and muse, who tragically disappeared on November 3rd, 2015. To date, there are many more questions than answers. I would not be the artist or man I am today if it wasn't for Deanne, and I will continue to use whatever platform I have to share her story and be her voice in the hope of bringing closure for her children, her family, and those that loved her. 

Deanne's case is currently active with the Cold Case Foundation
You can read several stories about Deanne on my blog
