Earlier this year, we were preparing to put the final touches on Furkat & Robbie's first swimwear collection.
Unforeseen circumstances followed and we knew we had to step up and help our community.
With this ongoing challenge, we postponed our swimwear launch and shifted some of our resources to begin making reusable masks. This crisis has taught us that while it affects us all, not all people have equal access to basic resources. Knowing this, we have been donating reusable masks and making contributions to organizations that are empowering vulnerable communities in need. By supporting us, you are also giving back to our community. Get One. Give One.
Wearing a mask is one step we can all take to help protect each other, along with social distancing and washing our hands frequently.
For every mask we sell, we are donating a mask to local organizations that represent vulnerable communities in need. Get One. Give One.
Please hashtag us in your masked adventures and inspire others to do the same :)
Our Values Amplify in Times of Crisis
We firmly believe in the power of love and community, especially now.
In the face of this challenge, we are reminded that we are all connected and our greatest strength lies in our unity and looking after each other. With your support, we will be making donations to local organizations that represent communities in need.
One such organization is New Jersey based, Inspiyah Inc. who is providing food and daily essentials to Jamaican families that have been impacted the hardest by this pandemic. The goal of Inspiyah Inc. is to create sustainable environments in Jamaica while fostering pride in both self and community.
Through their various initiatives, they help facilitate purpose, self-sufficiency and access to basic resources to the under-served communities in Jamaica and abroad - all things that we proudly support.
As a lifestyle brand rooted in the empowerment of community, we remain committed to our greater purpose of giving back and paying forward. We are our own best hope. We believe there is nothing that heart and humanity can’t fix. We are resilient and we will get through anything together.
Let's take care of each other out there. We are better together.
