Friends of Art in the Age,
We have been thinking and reflecting on this historic global movement, and what we as a small business can do to continue the forward momentum. In order to make a sustained commitment, we have decided to dedicate each upcoming month to supporting a different Black Organization throughout 2020.
For the month of June, every purchase made at Art in the Age will include a donation to Black & Brown Founders, a woman-founded organization that gives entrepreneurs knowledge, tools and cutting-edge tactics to launch startups without relying on venture capital. We will continue our donations to different Black organizations through the entire year. See below for further information and for our calendar of contributions.
We hope you’ll join us in our support of these incredible organizations, and also in transforming that support into a long-lasting habit.
