During the month of June, we CELEBRATE PRIDE… however, 2020 leaves little to be proud about. To say that this year has been rough would be an incredible understatement. Dealing with the COVID-19 global pandemic and its economic impact and the now ongoing civil unrest brought to light once again by the senseless killing we’ve all become witness to, it leaves us questioning where do we go from here…?
At the beginning of the year, it was our intention to start reaching out to local small businesses in our Southwestern, Pennsylvania and Pittsburgh region to provide great products at affordable prices to a wider audience in our hometowns. Then suddenly overnight, none of us were allowed to leave our houses in fear of contracting an unknown virus that has now claimed the lives of nearly 400,000 people worldwide.
And as we’re about to return to some semblance of normal, our country has erupted from all corners. The visuals over the past week are heartbreaking and the direction we’re heading concerns us deeply. But through all the sadness, we're hopeful we’ll come out better on the other side.
We are personally committed to our support of diversity. As proud members of the LGBTQIA+ community, we understand the fight for equality and accurate representation. And it’s now more important than ever, to remember the long strides we’ve taken to make a better place for us all and continue the work to make our country a more colorful place.
It’s with that sense of a return to community that we’ll focusing our energy going forward. We’re excited to announce that we’ll be partnering with small businesses all across the United States to better reach underserved areas. We will also be collaborating with local artists and creators over the next few months on projects to bring our communities closer together. And most importantly, we’re in the process of developing a project to provide entrepreneurial opportunities to at risk youth.
Through the month of June, we will be contributing $5.00 from every order received to support our OverSoyed / Privia Cares Campaign. Along with contributions from our Products for a Cause Campaign, all donations added by our customers will be matched by our parent company, The Privia Group. Our goal for June 2020 is $5,000 raised to benefit our new social initiative. "Together we can make a difference!" In appreciation for your support, we’ll be including our 2020 Pride Ally Sticker in every order received.
