Created by Piccolina in collaboration with artist, Erin Robinson, the Black Lives Matter t-shirt is a stand in solidarity with the Black community and those around the world fighting to end systemic racism. 100% of net proceeds will be donated to the National CARES Mentoring Movement to help further their mission of eliminating intergenerational poverty within the Black community.
ABOUT NATIONAL CARES MENTORING MOVEMENT
National CARES Mentoring Movement is a pioneering community-galvanizing movement dedicated to alleviating intergenerational poverty among African Americans. It offers Black children in low-income families and unstable communities the social, emotional and academic supports they need to unleash their potential and graduate from high school prepared to succeed in college or vocational-training programs and 21st-century careers. We employ two primary strategies. The proven-effective, consciousness-shifting model, ideated and built by experts over a decade, unearths hope and resilience in our young living with trauma-causing impacts of poverty—homelessness, hunger, unrelenting violence, gravely under-resourced schools and overwhelmed parents and teachers. The traumatic stress children in poverty live with fuels mental illness and physical disease, including anxiety, depression, hypertension, substance abuse, obesity, violence and also the recent spike in suicide.
