We're kicking off February by letting you know how excited we are that for our first-ever Black History Month celebration, we'll be donating 10% of our entire February 2021 sales to GirlTrek.
GirlTrek is a unique nonprofit organization that focuses on the health and healing of Black women and girls. Black women are more susceptible to diseases such as hypertension and diabetes, which are made worse by the systemic racism and gender inequity they face daily.
Co-founders Vanessa Garrison and T. Morgan Dixon started GirlTrek a decade ago and discovered that, "when women walked and talked together, everything changed."
Walking is one of our simplest and most basic exercises, and yet it adds years to our life. GirlTrek has organized walks in numerous parts of the US, encouraging Black women and girls to follow the steps of eternal heroes such as Harriet Tubman and her 100-mile trek to her (and ultimately many others') freedom.
Speaking of Harriet Tubman, I'm so ecstatic to finally be seeing her on our Dollar bill! That's one $20 I'm never going to spend.
GirlTrek's goals and ideals align with Mono B's, and we're proud to say we'll do whatever we can to help promote a healthier lifestyle, racial justice, and gender equity.
During the whole month of February 2021, use the coupon code FINDYOURPOWER upon checkout to receive a 15% discount on your total merchandise purchase.**
We also encourage you to make a donation to GirlTrek through their website, because they're awesome and they deserve it.
