we rise by lifting others
We have an amazing community here in Akron, OH. It's a scrappy little town making a come back-- with a whole lot of personality, and many people who are working hard to change the world. Lebron James said it best "In Northeast Ohio, nothing is given. Everything is earned. You work for what you have." This attitude cultivates amazing character, and characters, and in the future, we hope to share some of their rich, diverse, and inspiring stories with you.
Roots, unsurprisingly, are important to us. We are planting those seeds within our direct community, so a portion from each sale will be donated quarterly to ACCESS a local organization working to help homeless women and children in the Akron area. As we grow, we look forward to deepening those roots and contributions to our local, online, and global communities. There is much good work being done and we are actively exploring ways we can be that change that we want to see in the world, as Gandhi would say. (I truly can't help myself-- I have a thing for quotes!) Thank you for being a conscientious consumer. When you purchase from radicle, you are supporting a women owned and operated small business that is committed to enriching and improving the world. And we are gonna start right here in our little corner. With what, and who, we've got... :)
