To gather a community of artists and advocates making art with purpose. We will start to run crowdsourced campaigns around causes, inviting anyone and everyone to contribute their own meaningful designs. We then develop those designs into a range of physical goods, from posters to apparel to home goods, which we sell online, supporting artists and causes with every purchase.
All designs that meet the requirements in their respective creative briefs will be published and made available for sale as prints and other merchandise. Artists retain ownership of their work but grant us permission to promote, license and sell it in exchange for 30% of the profits.
We partner with non-profit and cause-based organizations to help tell stories and engage community. We also donate 20% of profits to our non-profit partners. Please get in touch with us if you'd like to partner on a campaign!
NATIONAL RECOVERY MONTH - SEPTEMBER 2017
Every September, SAMHSA sponsors Recovery Month to increase awareness and understanding of mental and substance use disorders and celebrate the people who recover. Recovery Month is an annual celebration sponsored each September by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), which is a part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
What is this year’s Recovery Month theme? This year’s theme, “Join the Voices for Recovery: Our Families, Our Stories, Our Recovery!” highlights the value of peer support by educating, mentoring and helping others. It invites individuals in recovery and their support systems to be active change agents in communities, and in civic and advocacy engagements.
We will be placing art work up as soon as it comes in, ready to be purchased immediately! This Campaign will be running until September 2017. So be creative and let us know what recovery looks like to you! Help us raise awareness and money to this still suffering out there! I have never been more excited about something!
