*7/11/2020 update! In under a week, together with the help of our customers, we were able to raise a total of $1,050 in profits! We split the profits and donated to two organizations- BEAM and Anti Racism Fund. Thank you again to every one of you that purchased and helped share information about our campaign. The fight isn’t over, let’s continue doing our part and KEEP FIGHTING!
It felt like dejavu.
It seems like every time there’s a problem in the world my heart screams, “What can I do to help?”
I ran up the stairs, barged into the office, and blurted out to my husband “We need to sell shirts.”
That’s typically how it goes. I have a passion for something, and I make it happen. And then when I sit to do the action item, it’s harder than I thought Haha.
Last week we asked the public to vote for a design, and with the help of you all, we were able to merge two design into one. 100% of the profits for these shirts will be donated to a Black owned organization with a minimum donation goal of $1,000.
What I thought would be a smooth process, turned out to be a littttleeee more complicated. You see, we’re choosing to work with a drop ship company which allows us to have zero inventory. The problem? Due to COVID-19 many of those companies are severely delayed and you can expect your products in a month. Not my cup of tea.
We did find a company that drop shipped in a timely manner, but if I am being honest I wasn’t a big fan of the print quality and as I roll, my commitment to quality and client experience is essential.
So, I will continue doing research to narrow down a company, and if shipping delays are a few weeks we’ll make sure to communicate that to our clients. After all, this movement isn’t going anywhere.
Now for the final design *DRUM ROLL*
We’ll have details on how to order as soon as possible.
Thanks for your support. Together we will keep fighting for quality!
