The recent attacks on our AAPI community has kicked up some serious personal pain, anger and frustration. To take action, we are participating in @DesignForATL along with 80+ designers & makers to raise funds directed to the victim’s families and children via the non-profit organization Advancing Justice Atlanta. The fundraiser ends Sunday March 28 at midnight EST and winners will be announced on Tuesday March 30.
Organized by our friends at Steep LA, this charity sale brings together restaurants, makers and designers in the greater Chinatown area of Los Angeles for a one day Charity sale benefiting those most affected by the recent attacks on our AAPI community. Join us among 20+ others this Sunday, March 28 at 11am at Steep LA.
