As we enter into our next year of business and celebrate turning 10 this month, we are excited to shine the spotlight on our new philanthropy partner interBLOK. Based out of Los Angeles California, interBLOK is new non-profit with a vision for rebuilding orphanages Internationally using shipping containers. Their first initiative will start with the design and build out of a classroom constructed from two shipping containers. Sending these containers full of supplies to orphanages in need of support and a safe structure to educate their children is what its all about, and why we feel so connected to their mission.
After two years of working with Door of Faith orphanage in Baja Mexico we had been searching for the next step with our philanthropy efforts. Through our fundraising efforts and our Give Back Program we raised over $12,500 for Door of Faith to provide school supplies for 100 kids and help rebuild a boys dormitory. Our team has forever been touched from these experiences supporting less fortunate children across our border. When we heard about interBLOK’s mission we jumped at the opportunity to get involved and start making a bigger impact globally with them! View this video to hear about it from their own words.
Our efforts with interBLOK will kick off with a fundraiser at our 10 Year Anniversary celebration at Parq Nightclub in San Diego this coming April 21st. But they will go far beyond a single event as we’re excited to form a long term partnership to build awareness and financially support the growth of their vision. Our initiative to give back a portion of our net proceeds through our Give Back Program will ensure that we’ll be supporting year round from all of our fashion sales and entertainment proceeds!
