It's important to uplift youth and give them a platform to be seen. We want kids to feel centered and inspired not only through our clothing, but in all the work that we do, and strive to create opportunities where they feel most engaged. We are grateful to partner with young talent, organizations, and brands that trust our vision and align with our values of supporting kids' confidence in developing a strong sense of self-love and community.
The Conscious Kid: Rent Relief Fund for Families
We partnered with The Conscious Kid, an education, research, and policy organization dedicated to equity and promoting healthy racial identity in youth, through a mask initiative to raise funds for families that have been disproportionately affected by COVID-19. We were able to successfully raise our target goal of $20,000 to support 100 families in just 3 weeks of selling masks on our website. [Photograph courtesy of Astaire Woldemichael-Smith]
