Our flash sale is a response to the longstanding threats against migrant, immigrant and refugee families, which persist in the communities where we are from and where we live throughout the Americas. We came together at this crucial moment to raise funds for small organizations who serve immigrants, refugees, deportees and their families.”

All remaining proceeds will be distributed evenly to Al Otro Lado and Alerta Migratoria NC, two organizations fighting the escalating crisis of detainment, imprisonment, and deportation in the U.S.. Thank you for supporting families fighting to stay together.
