Monthly Redistribution

As a small business, we are overwhelmed by the support we have received throughout years and are grateful to be able to offer redistribution, especially during a particularly difficult year.

From June to December 2020, we redistributed 5% of our monthly sales to a different BIPOC cause. or organization within Chicagoland.

For 2021, we have decided upon a flat $500 redistribution as it removes capitalism [i.e. sales] from the equation. This ensure that we are able to aid each cause/organization equally and consistently.

You are welcome to redistribute directly to any of these amazing organizations using the links below.
