LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — Lexington activist and artist Devine Carama is wrapping up his annual "A Coat to Keep the Cold Away" coat drive and now the organization is only 300 coats away from meeting its goal.

Carama has been featured heavily in the news for his efforts to raise attention and funds to purchase brand new coats for children in need across the Commonwealth. Notably, he rapped outside for 48 hours in the cold and suffered frostbite.

His non-profit organization, Believing in Forever, received over 2,000 requests. Carama now has only 300 requests left to finish out his shopping. Volunteers can also come out to the Plantory from 6-9 p.m. to bag up the remaining coats.

You can donate new coats at 501 W 6th Street in downtown Lexington through 9 p.m.

You can also make a financial donation via the Cash App at $BelievingInForever, Venmo at BelievinginForever and via Paypal to phone number 859-303-2637.
