Each month BLōFISH chooses a cause to donate 10% of every sale to. We were founded on two major ideas: To give back to our community and that clothing should be ALL4ALL. Our ALL4ALL mentality isn't just for clothes, though. It's important for us to practice what we preach, which is why we're proud to announce that the June 2018 charity is The Trevor Project.
The Trevor Project was founded in 1998 by the creators of the Academy Award®-winning short film TREVOR. The Trevor Project is the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer & questioning (LGBTQ+) young people under 25.
This cause, in particular, is important to us this Pride season not only because Pride Festivals are where we got our start, but because we've lost many of our own LGBTQ+ friends to suicide. If you're an LGBTQ+ person, we want you to know that ALL4ALL includes you, and we're in your corner. If you have an LGBTQ+ friend who is struggling, we encourage you to direct them to The Trevor Project and to reach out to them.
LGBT youth experience depression, anxiety, and other mental health issues at an exponential rate compared to their heterosexual peers. To learn more, visit The Trevor Project's website.
In conjunction with donating 10% of every sale in the month of June to The Trevor Project, we're excited to announce the return of our exclusive Pride line! June is the only time you can get these items, and they sell out quick, so make sure to get your orders in before you miss out until 2019. Our highly-requested rainbow hats will be making a return, as well as special EQUAL. shirts, and some brand-new items for you.
We couldn't do what we do without you, so thank you for supporting BLōFISH, The Trevor Project, and the ALL4ALL message.
(We’d like to begin by including a Content Warning for mentions of sexual assault throughout this blog. Take care of yourselves and read with caution, friends.)
It's been a long, stressful, and emotion-filled week. The Kavanaugh hearings have, for many - especially survivors of sexual assault - been emotionally exhausting. The current news cycle is triggering for many survivors. Because of this, RAINN's hotline has been overflowing with calls to a point they can’t keep up, Twitter has been overflowing with both support and contempt for Dr. Ford, and most of our conversations here at BLōFISH have centered around the news cycle and how we can help.
Sarah wanted a career that allowed her to see the world but also let her be a part of something bigger than herself. This led her to the military. She chose this path with a goal to, “become something more.” Along with serving our country, Sarah explained that her reason behind joining the Maven program was “to inspire others to be themselves and not be afraid to show who they are.”
