you have to understand,
that no one puts their children in a boat
unless the water is safer than the land
no one burns their palms
no one spends days and nights in the stomach of a truck
feeding on newspaper unless the miles travelled
means something more than journey.
no one crawls under fences
no one wants to be beaten
—Excerpt from “Home” by Warsan Shire
Not all journeys are for pleasure and discovery. Many stem from necessity and survival.
We're proud to contribute a portion of our profits to Rainbow Underground which helps LGBTQI+ people escape state-sponsored violence. Sadly in countries around the world, LGBTQI+ people face violence and oppression simply because of who they love or who they are. Rainbow Underground is an amazing organization that helps get them to safety.
Since their founding, they've helped over 1,600 LGBTQI+ individuals find safety through emergency relocation and other forms of assistance.
