The past week has given us a huge opportunity to listen, learn and educate ourselves on the insane injustices of the world. As two white women, we’ll never know firsthand just how unfair it is, but reading the stories and seeing the videos has been heart wrenching and it’s hard not to feel helpless. Anti-racist posts on social media is a good start but it’s not enough and this shit has to STOP.
That’s why we’ve decided to pause all marketing campaigns and donate that money to Color of Change. In addition, we’ll be donating a portion of our sales today through 7/31/20. It’s a very small gesture from our small company but, as we grow, we hope to give back more and be a part of the change.
It’s so important that we’re willing to learn and not turn a blind eye to the uncomfortable facts. If you haven’t watched already, we HIGHLY recommend watching 13th, a netflix documentary, that makes an incredible case about the roots of modern policing and how they’re steeped in racism. It’s truly shocking and will leave you in tears (but a good cry is necessary sometimes, k?)
We're all in this together.
