Threadless, a diverse global community of artists and those that support them, wants to honor George Floyd and the countless others who’ve lost their lives and livelihoods to racism. Over the coming weeks, they will be sharing art and stories from Black artists and their allies in our community. Starting today, all Artist Shop owners have the option to donate a portion of their proceeds to eight different organizations of their choosing. Threadless will match those donations up to an additional $100,000.
These organizations exist to help bring racial justice and create a less hostile world for the Black community. The organizations are as follows:
- Black Lives Matter
- Black Visions Collective
- The Bail Project
- Unicorn Riot
- Reclaim The Block
- Chicago Freedom School
- Color of Change
- Campaign Zero
