SAVE YOUR MIND COLLECTION
GIVEBACK TO URBAN VENTURES OF SOUTH MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA.
With all the noise and un-warranted influence, we want nothing but to save our minds. Save Your Mind is about being present, remaining grateful, and working on yourself to lead a passionate life.
We are honored to be partnering with Urban Ventures of South Minneapolis, Minnesota as our Giveback organization for this collection. Urban Ventures' mission is to educate children, strengthen their families, and build a healthy community.
20% of proceeds from select garments sold from the Save Your Mind Collection will be donated to Urban Ventures. Donations will support immediate emergency response efforts as well as long-term rebuilding efforts, including ongoing support for youth and families. Please note that sale items are no longer active Givebacks.
Urban Ventures works alongside 70 local partners to address opportunity gaps in academics, nutrition, physical activity, parenting resources, and more-- all with the overarching goal to prepare and send every youth in their neighborhood to college or postsecondary education.
Urban Ventures believes every kid deserves a fair shot. With a strong value of community empowerment, Urban Ventures provides cradle-to-career support for youth and families in one of Minneapolis' most under-resourced neighborhoods. Urban Ventures values faith, integrity, empowerment, transformation, diversity, and sustainability.
For more information about Urban Ventures mission, strategies and programs, or how to further engage and/or to make a direct donation, please visit urbanventures.org.
Designs for our Save Your Mind collection were inspired by our favorite hip-hop/rap duo, RTJ in collaboration with Graphic Designer and Illustrator ACHE Creativo, Jorge Vasquez. Jorge moved to the United States about 5 years ago from Mexico City. Jorge is currently pursuing his passion of animation. We are grateful to be a platform for ACHE Creativo as he pursues his passion and dream.
The play on the collection's inspiration can be summed up below.. keep your mind on a mission.
"You can't go forward, and you can't go backward
The past, the present, the future, all irrelevant
The only thing that matters is gratitude
Gratitude is everything, time is nothing.."
