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.
As part of a greater consciousness of the community in which we live, this season we have chosen to donate a portion of all our sales to The Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services (RAICES) whose services defend the rights of immigrants and refugees, empowering individuals, families and communities and advocating for liberty and justice.
We envision a more compassionate society where humans rights are guaranteed for all. We believe this a important cause and encourage you to learn more about their work.
