We believe everyone is worthy of love, should be loved, and feel loved regardless of age, colour, or gender. July marks our 2 year celebration of the I AM LOVE PROJECT. During these unprecedented times, we have decided to withdraw from any celebrations and events until August. Instead, we want to celebrate the brilliance, dignity, and leadership of Black people, communities, and organizations. 

We have teamed up with our friends at ZUEIKE to create a limited edition bracelet to call out to every person living in Canada to join in the life work of dismantling racism in all its form through the purchase of our “UNITY” bracelet. The purpose of this bracelet is to bring awareness and encourage us to stand in solidarity. Wear this bracelet as we stand together in power for those who have been silenced. This bracelet grounds us in the unity of equality and begins the path of healing. Black tourmaline is a stone of strength and protection providing a sense of power and confidence for those who stand up, and promotes a clear and equal objective view of the world around us. This bracelet will empower those who have lived in challenging environments and provide guidance when facing difficult circumstances. 

Of course there's a charitable component! Proceeds from the bracelets will support The Higher Learning Foundation, dedicated to provide scholarships to students within our black communities.

Racism doesn't stop through the purchase of a bracelet. We know it is important that anti-racist behaviour continues to carry on day to day and it is essential to reflect on WHAT WE CAN EVERYDAY AND NOT JUST AS A ONE-OFF. Continue to educate ourselves and seek our information from Black educators. This should matter everyday.

Are you in?
