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.

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

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.
