You know, there's always the question of what can I do. We watch countless videos of African Americans being killed every week, every. month, and every year and we always ask ourselves what can I do. This is what I have chosen to do. I have decided to take my passion for making skincare products and use it to give back to my people.
The products for this launch have limited edition all-black packaging and are as always made with love and natural ingredients. To learn more about the products, please revisit this site on the launch date June 1st at 7PM.
Maybe only 5 people will purchase something from this launch, maybe none will, but at the end of the day, no matter how much money we make, I want to be able to say that I was able to use this small business to give back. No matter how bleak times may seem, we MUST stand together. Despite all circumstances, despite all challenges, despite all adversity, we have to stand up for our people.
The of the proceeds of this launch will be split among George Floyd's GoFundMe as well as a nonprofit organization dedicated to ending police brutality and decreasing violence in Minneapolis and the surrounding communities known as Reclaim the Block.
