Las Vidas Negrxs Trans Importan Collaboration

A collaboration with Pinlord — we created this pin in support of Black Trans Lives Matter. 100% of proceeds from the sale of this pin are donated to the Marsha P Johnson Institute, named in honor of the gay liberation activist and drag queen, dedicates itself to protecting and defending the right of Black transgender people.

 

Deaf + Queer Collaboration

A collaboration with Gregor Lopes — we created a few designs to be inclusive of the Deaf & Queer community and also to encourage folks to learn ASL(American Sign Language). 10% of proceeds from our sticker collaboration from February to August went to Deaf Queer Resource Center. Proceeds from our new pin collection will go to HEARD - Helping Educate to Advance the Rights of Deaf Communities.

 

Fundraiser for Bail Funds & Racial Justice Organizations

What’s been going on for too long now — police brutality, systemic racism, the murdering of black folks such as George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Tony Mcdade and so many more — is unacceptable and needs to stop. It’s been breaking my heart and making me sick. We need to fight for justice — we demand it, especially for black folks. We need to use our voices and share any/all information surrounding this. We need to educate ourselves, do the work and fight for change. With all of this said, I wanted to donate 100% of slightly flawed pin/keychain proceeds + 20% of sales from my shop to organizations to support as much as I can.

List of organizations donated to:

    Emergency Relief Fund
    Equal Justice Initiative
    For the Gworls
    The Okra Project

    Progress Pride Pin

    The Progress Pride Flag was created by Daniel Quasar in 2018 as a reboot of the previous pride flag to be more inclusive. When I first discovered it, I wanted to learn everything about it! Later I started a Kickstarter to create my own Progress pin but figured there may be some terms of use. So I checked Quasar’s terms and reached out as well just to make sure it would be okay to use and sell. Part of the terms were to donate a portion of the proceeds to a selected organization. I was happy to follow all terms! Now part of the ever-growing pride series, the Progress Pride pin is partly a charity pin that donates 25% of the proceeds to The Trevor Project.

    Seconds Sale Fundraiser

    One weekend each month a small group of various shops participate in a seconds sale Friday through Sunday, run by Shop Shoal (previously “Oh Plesiosaur”). Each seller donates 100% of their seconds profits to that month’s nonprofit organization. Organizations are nominated by members and voted on at the beginning of the year. I felt this was such a great way to come together to raise funds for different places that needed it.

    Below are organizations donated to when I was able to participate:

    Black Lives Matter, February 2020
    Malala Fund, December 2019
    Native American Rights Fund, November 2019
    Girls Who Code, August 2019
    Trans Lifeline, June 2019
    Trevor Project, December 2018
    American Refugee Committee, July 2018

     

    Love Knows No Gender

    Love Knows No Gender started out as a mission to support the LGBTQ+ community and the organizations that fight inequality. It became one of the first designs launched out of Bianca’s Design Shop made into pins and limited edition patch. These products were created to spread a powerful message, provide visibility, and give back to our community. 50% of profits were donated to a different organization each month.
