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 a lot of money in the flights, shirts and AirBNB. Now, we have to do damage control!!! While the founder...

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! We raised over $1500 and received additional items from 10 sponsors as well as having warm pizza provided by Nashville's...

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 / college Freshmen with their move in expenses. The students were selected carefully by Pebblebrook faculty. While HBCU students were preferred, we...

Friday May 29, We watched as many cities all over the world were uprising. Police cars and buildings were being damaged and set on fire. Police in riot gear were shooting protesters with rubber bullets and tear gas. Our city was hurt.. the World was hurting. The uprisings were caused by the murder of George Floyd by the knee of a Minnesota Police officer. The world watched as George took his last breath.  We couldn’t take one more minute of watching... posting... talking and tweeting about that’s happening. We had to get involved. Some kind of way.We woke up Saturday morning, got our cooler and wagon ready... put trash bags and gloves in the car in case we needed to pick up trash and...

For May, our goal was to give back in a different kind of way. We got 3 gift cards to pass out to complete strangers. We chose to pass them out to essential  employees. We purchased 2 $10 Racetrac gas cards and 1 $20 Publix card. Our first stop was Willy's Mexicana Grill for lunch. The server was so awesome  and ad great energy... he was the first to get a gift card. Second, we went to Publix to get groceries AND a gift card. The cashier opened a line just for us, so we blessed him with a $10 gas card! Lastly, our local Post Office. We blessed one of the cashiers with the final $20 Publix card. This...
