At HelloBody, we preach that #skinisskin and celebrate all bodies daily. We believe that true beauty lies in our ability to be authentically ourselves, and consider diversity and inclusion to be among the cornerstones of our brand. We built HelloBody to become a community where we may all be celebrated for and empowered by our individuality; and where we can realize that our differences are the very things that make us uniquely, beautifully stronger together.
Our hearts hurt as we see the systemic racism that continues to affect communities of color on a daily basis. While we are saddened by the reality of the situation, we are optimistic in our collective ability to bring about positive, permanent change. The world is watching; and we will continue to use our platform to uplift BIPOC voices and push for progress.
From June 1st through today, we have been raising money to support the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) in their pursuit of justice. Per their website, the NAACP’S mission is,
“to secure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights in order to eliminate race-based discrimination and ensure the health and well-being of all persons.”NAACP
Today, we are proud to make our donation in the amount of $10,000 to the association.
We would like to personally thank everyone within our HelloBody community – our team, our customers, business partners and affiliates – who contributed to this effort. We are incredibly proud of the way our community has responded to this crisis. HelloBody will continue to stand alongside our Black brothers and sisters as we come together against the injustices that have pained our nation for too long.
There is still work to be done; both personally and systemically. We will continue to listen, learn, and push for a more equal tomorrow.
Please continue to be loud. Be heard. And above all, be safe.
With nothing but love,
