At IO Collective, we believe that there comes a time when silence is simply betrayal. It is because of this belief, we knew it was time to become vocal and show our support of Black Lives Matter. That includes the peaceful protesting (not the looting and crime) that’s been happening in Downtown Los Angeles and cities all over the country following the death of George Floyd.
“DO YOUR LITTLE BIT OF GOOD WHERE YOU ARE; IT’S THOSE LITTLE BITS OF GOOD PUT TOGETHER THAT OVERWHELM THE WORLD.”
– Desmond Tutu
Yesterday on Instagram, we shared a post outlining our agreement to match donations up to $1000 from Monday until Friday June 5th at 10pm. Today, many companies are making the same choice by donating money to nonprofit organizations that support the nation’s fight for equality and justice for people of color.
We are so grateful that Emili Vesilind of JCK found our post, and has shared it on their website! Our goal is to have as many eyes on this blog so that we can raise money and awareness about the Black Lives Matter movement.
If you would like to have us match your donation, simply post your receipt in your IG story (or DM us a screenshot,) tag @iocollective and the organization you donated to. We’ll post our final donation receipt on Friday, June 5th after 10pm.
