IT'S TIME TO STAND TOGETHER!
As BUSINESS OWNERS and friends of the community, it's our responsibility to stand up against injustice and racism.
#StandTogether is an opportunity to UNIFY all people across the globe, regardless of their skin color or background.
Our BLACK BROTHERS AND SISTERS need our help to raise their voices!..
That’s why we’re taking a STAND!
Friends & Business Owners! We need you to STAND TOGETHER WITH US!
From now until June 19th, we’re asking you to TAKE ACTION and help us raise $250,000 to donate to the various organizations who fight against RACISM and INJUSTICE!
YES... It's A LOFTY GOAL! But it we #StandTogether, we can make a HUGE difference!
Our goal: If we can unite, amplify our voices and leverage our influence, we have the opportunity to raise over A QUARTER OF A MILLION DOLLARS!
Wouldn't that be AMAZING!?
HERE'S HOW IT WORKS:
BUSINESS OWNERS: You can raise however much money you want, HOWEVER you want! You can promote/sell one special item, donate a percentage of your sales, you can donate an entire days' revenue, it doesn't matter! But we're looking for business owners to raise/pledge a MINIMUM of $300.
COMMUNITY MEMBERS: No donation is too small! But keep in mind, a QUARTER OF A MILLION DOLLARS is a lot of money. So let's be generous and give from our hearts!
Whether you’re donating as an individual, a family, or a business, no donation is too small!
Here is a list of the causes and organizations / foundations we will be donating to: (You can read more about these organizations on our DONATION page.)
- My Brother's Keeper Alliance - Obama Foundation - Their mission is to build safe and supportive communities for boys and young men of color, where they feel valued and have clear pathways to opportunity.
- The National Bail Fund Network is a national project that works with organizers, advocates, and legal providers across the country to fund community bail funds in an effort to radically change local bail systems and reduce incarceration.
- Campaign Zero - We CAN live in a world where the police don't kill people. This happens with POLICE REFORM
- BLACK LIVES MATTER initiative and movement
- The fight against MASS INCARCERATION
Our #StandTogether campaign is to not only to bring awareness to the recent injustices that have hit our nation but it is to TAKE A STAND TOGETHER; as all races, all skin colors, and all genders. We cannot stay silent about the things that actually matter. Now is the time to take ACTION, to SPEAK UP, and FIGHT for equality, inclusion, and peace.
WE STAND in solidarity with the fight against systemic racism, white supremacy, and the historic oppression of the Black community.
