Give a Damn!
Omg if there's one thing I've learned since starting Lingua Franca, it's that banding together with other friends who care is not only meaningful work, it's F-U-N, FUN! This thoughtful collaboration with MZ Wallace got its start back in April (APRIL!). Back then we had no idea that Trump would be appointing another Supreme Court Justice so soon or that we'd be devoting our precious time to pointless things like the minute details of a frat boy's 1982 calendar (I can't help it - this still freaks me out! Who still has those?!). But, we WERE already thinking about midterms. We were thinking and we were planning and we were working together, 'cause that's what women do! And this is what was born.
And, I get it. A bag is just a bag. But this bag is truly so much more. Really! We and our friends at MZ Wallace have promised 100% of the proceeds of this bag go to an organization that we all think is helping to move the needle in the right direction: She Should Run. If you don't know about this fantastic, non-partisan organization whose mission is to "expand the talent pool of women running for office in the U.S.," please get on their radar.
We made what we could (700 bags), but they are already going fast. If you have any interest in this bag, for yourself or for a gift - please snatch one up now! I can't bear to have my LF newsletter peeps miss out on this one!
And, if you're in New York, come listen to Erin (founder of She Should Run), Monica and Lucy (founders of MZ Wallace) and moi talk all about this wonderful collaboration and why we all give a damn and think you all should too! It's 5-7 this Friday in Soho and the details are at the bottom of the email. RSVP here: firstname.lastname@example.org. xo Rachelle
