Danielle “Doxie” Kaltz, Burners Without Borders

Burners Without Borders shines a light on the humanity of those who live on the streets of Detroit.

Launched by Doxie Kaltz, the Detroit chapter of Burners without Borders (and its many volunteers) assemble backpacks with toiletries, gift cards and other supplies, and gives them out to the homeless. With their permission, she photographs the recipient and blogs about their personal story.

This grant was identified by another grantee, and one of our grant advisors, Jennie Kay, who launched the Detroit Sanctuary Project and received one of our first grants in 2013.  Jennie Kay explains, “Doxie is a doer. She doesn’t wait for the 501c3 to be filed, the structure of things to get figured out…she sees a need, she gets it done, especially when it comes to helping the welfare and outcome of others.”
