Why We Donate
We donate a portion of every sale to charity. When you shop with us, you get to choose which charity you would like your sale to be donated to--either the Equal Justice Initiative or Operation Underground Railroad.
Operation Underground Railroad
Operation Underground Railroad works to end child trafficking and child slavery. "They exist to rescue children from sex trafficking." They research locations where child trafficking is prevalent and carry out missions to rescue the children and capture the perpetrators.

Equal Justice Initiative
When I was in high school, I competed in a program called We The People. It is a competitive constitutional class, and we traveled around competing against other teams that were also studying various topics in the constitution and bill of rights.
The topics that I was assigned to study focused mainly on our country's legal system. Through my studies, it became so clear that our justice system is not perfect and needs quite a few changes made to it. For years, I planned to be a lawyer, but then my career took off, and I opted to remain a photographer. I love what I do right now, but I still wanted to do something to help.
I discovered the Equal Justice Initiative in 2020 when I watched the movie "Just Mercy". I did a lot of research on EJI, and I fully support everything they do. They are "committed to mass incarceration and excessive punishment in the United Stated, to challenging racial and economic justice, and to protecting basic human rights for the most vulnerable people in American society".
