2024! January We Care Wednesday

How is it a new year?!? Even as we consider our annual purge of things we don't need/want we also are spending a little time reflecting on the things that we do need in the coming year. Like more community building. And more social justice. And more celebrating the wins. In 2023 we donated over $14K to nonprofits and mutual aid funds doing essential work in the community. That's 20% more than we raised from We Care Wednesday in 2022! Thank you to everyone that shopped with intention on Wednesdays, who shared the We Care Wednesday initiative with other organizations,...

December 2023 - We Care Wednesday

Remember when Twitter was *the place* to find out if you'd just experienced an earthquake or if there was a flyover to open Fenway Park but you were the last to know? It was also a place where you could find people doing really amazing work and writing about it. We connected with artists and craftspeople all over the world, we joined conversations about public transit and affordable housing, and we went viral for an evening for using swear words while discussing the Vice Presidential debates. It's also where we found invaluable resources in 2020 and until that very rich...

September 2023 - We Care Wednesday

In May of 2023, Sarah Dudek created a beautiful print in response to the ongoing attacks on Trans Rights across the country. We bought one of the prints for the store and were thrilled to participate in a community printing event of Sarah's art in June benefiting the Trans Emergency Fund of Massachusetts.   Sarah Dudek's Instagram post put it so well, "Gender is hard. Not for everyone, but for some of us. And for a lot of kids, it just got much harder. Please, please, lend a hand to fight for Trans Rights. Listen. Be a safe space for...
