Partnerships!

So what do your 2020 partnerships looks like exactly?!

We believe that with the things we have been given it is our joy to give back to our community! 

This year, we have decided give back to TEN different Chicago-based nonprofits, one nonprofit a month!

We will be supporting them in two different ways:

  • Financial support- Each month we will be donating $120 to that specific nonprofit we are featuring that month as well as $3 for every online sale from the month.

  • Exposure- We will be releasing a short video at the beginning of each month (February-November) in which we will be giving our customers a little insight into the work that our nonprofit partner is doing. **This has changed with COVID, we no longer will be doing videos but sharing with our email list and social media about who we are supporting.
