DAD DAY '21

DAD DAY '21

One of our favorite annual givebacks is "DAD DAY". We usually fill cups with goodies, but this year we changed it up a little and filled small buckets. This year, we did Starbursts, Airheads, chewing gum, cookies, a bag of chips and a juice! We chose Atlantic Station this year instead of our usual Barber Shops. It was the PERFECT location! There were dads everywhere. We were met with a little hesitation from a few dads and some even said no. But, that was ok, there were MANY MORE Dads that were grateful for the gift. We love Dad Day...


GOOD HUMANS IN CALI!

GOOD HUMANS IN CALI!

WE DID IT!!! We had our very first West Coast PopUp + Giveback! But, this didn't just "happen" without difficulties. Originally, we had planned to have our popup and giveback in downtown Oakland! We spoke with the owner of a popular boutique (we won't name names) and were granted access to his space for a reasonable fee.  Once we got the approval, we began planning for OAKLAND. Which means we purchased OAKLAND shirts and paid for an OAKLAND AirBNB for 6 people! As the date got closer, the owner stopped responding to our texts and DMs. We had already invested...

This year, we did LOVE DAY on Feb 10th to celebrate the life of a FVSU alum and one of our President's best friends, D-Lo. D-Lo lost his life in a tragic car accident days before Karina Chanelle Birthday last September and his birthday was 3 days before Valentines Day. The loss tremendously affected her so she wanted this Love Day to be dedicated to him.   The giveback took place at Fort Valley State University campus with the help of some FVSU football players! We filled ziplock bags with some treats, attached a greeting card and set out to give...

Hoodies 4 Humanity '21: Nashville

Every year, we raise just enough money to purchase NEW winter essential items for the humans experiencing homelessness. A hoodie, beanie, socks, and gloves. This year, after much thought, we decided to take the community initiative to our hometown of Nashville, TN. Late last year, a hometown hero loss his life to a senseless killing and we wanted to find a way to honor his legacy by dedicating this giveback to him. Rasheed Walker was known to giveback to his community and create events for Nashville that helped bring people together. With his mothers blessing, we dedicated this one to him!...

Top the Tip: College Edition sponsored by Lil Yachty

  When my daughter went to college, I had no way of helping her financially. That’s supplies, dorm room essentials, clothes, anything!!!! Luckily, she had a job at Bed Bath and Beyond so she was able to not only afford her supplies but also her dorm room essentials! As a parent, it tore me up inside that I wasn’t able to help her more. Many times, I would go in the negative just to get her groceries... I don’t wish that pain on no parent. This school year, we used our “Top the Tip” initiative to help 2020 Pebblebrook graduates /...
