Minority Women Owned Small CA Businesses Giving to Black Lives MatterI wanted to share Delicora‘s initiative for Black Lives Matter. Vietnamese American founder and designer, Sandra Martinelli is based in Santa Cruz, CA. The brand is cause-driven with proceeds from every purchase donated to Feeding America however Sandra felt it necessary to do something more specific for the BLM movement.The founder of Delicora, Sandra said: “Like many of you, my heart is broken. I’ve felt waves of emotions ranging from utter horror to deep sadness, and I’ve been feeling helpless over the past week on figuring out what I can do to help. The bottom line is black lives matter, black children matter, black futures matter. In order to promote change in a positive direction, families need to have these discussions at the dinner table, and individuals must educate themselves about lived experiences of the black community, show respect, and speak up. I will be sending personal donations to support @colorofchange.Color of Change leads campaigns that build real power for Black communities.” The organization challenges injustice, holds corporate and political leaders accountable, commission game-changing research on systems of inequality, and advance solutions for racial justice that can transform our world.
As a small business, Sandra decided to add a new piece to Delicora website – Love Necklace for Color of Change, 100% of proceeds will be donated to the organization @colorofchange, you can read her mission surrounding the movement on the Delicora site as well.
