Giving Back

Charity has always been very close to our hearts, Emily and I both have volunteered throughout our lives and it kicked into high gear during the pandemic when we decided to give La Detresse to nurses, first responders and donate to as many charities as we could. We both decided that giving back needed to built into the fabric of our future. We have been chasing a piece from each collection and donating profits from that piece to a charity of our choice. We really believe in giving back to our community, to mental health, to food and water insecurity, to the things we see daily and touch all our lives. 

For this SS22 Season we have chosen to give profits from the Cenote Alex Tee to Water Drop LA, an organization very close to our hearts, one that we have been volunteering for from the early pandemic. Water Drop LA, works with the community of unhoused living on Skid Row in Downtown LA. This is a community Emily and I see every day when we work downtown, and a community that is extremely stigmatized. We want to support these people and the people who live and breath with us while we create our collections, and we hope one day will be no longer residents of the streets where Water Drop supports them. We are so thankful, we hope you will grab a T-shirt and help us support Water Drop LA.
