Planning a wedding can feel trivial in a world where there is so much hatred, violence, and injustice.
I know I struggle with the question of whether I’m doing enough work to make things better. And since you’re reading this page on my website, I bet you are the kind of people who worry about these things too.
So when I left my former planning company behind and rebranded into Aisle Less Traveled, I decided to put my money where my mouth is:
» I’ve committed to donating 5% of every sale to organizations working towards social justice, full equality for all people, protecting this one planet we have, and generally making the world a better place.
Every calendar month, I’ll select a different charity to give to, and together we will help fund the hard work that so many amazing people and organizations are doing.
This program launched in May 2017, and I am grateful to clients like you who’ve joined with me in donating to these fantastic organizations:
Houston Food Bank
National Alliance to End Homelessness
The Puerto Rico Real-Time Recovery Fund
Abuse, and Incest National Network)
Southern Poverty Law Center
» MEET THIS MONTH’S CHARITY! 5% OF february 2018 SALES WILL GO TO:
Black Lives Matter Foundation
What does the Black Lives Matter Foundation do? I’ll let them tell you:
The Black Lives Matter Global Network is a chapter-based, member-led organization whose mission is to build local power and to intervene in violence inflicted on Black communities by the state and vigilantes.
We are expansive. We are a collective of liberators who believe in an inclusive and spacious movement. We also believe that in order to win and bring as many people with us along the way, we must move beyond the narrow nationalism that is all too prevalent in Black communities. We must ensure we are building a movement that brings all of us to the front.
We affirm the lives of Black queer and trans folks, disabled folks, undocumented folks, folks with records, women, and all Black lives along the gender spectrum. Our network centers those who have been marginalized within Black liberation movements.
We are working for a world where Black lives are no longer systematically targeted for demise.
We affirm our humanity, our contributions to this society, and our resilience in the face of deadly oppression.
The call for Black lives to matter is a rallying cry for ALL Black lives striving for liberation.
