It’s getting more and more difficult of late to use these pages for anything outside of the political, social, cultural, and activist realms. Things like vegan recipes and random cool products/designs are all great still, but they seem trite compared to what’s been going on in the world these days.
Luckily, many of our friends and colleagues are marrying their work and social activism, creating projects that directly support campaigns and causes that need our help now more than ever.
One such project comes from our friends at Pel—Mary and Paul’s Digital Bakesale is an ongoing fundraising campaign they’ve created to benefit different grassroots organizations in the seasons to come. As they explain:
“For this inaugural iteration we are offering t-shirts that say either ‘AMERICAN’ or ‘PEACE’ in Arabic. Our hope is that they will foster conversation and demonstrate that there is nothing to fear from any language.”
Pictured above is my PEACE shirt. Shirts aren’t solutions, but opening up needed dialogues and supporting important causes are just two of the small steps we need to take to affect positive change and stay true to the fundamental ideals of our nation.
