Our Mission is to raise awareness and funds to help overcome mental health stigma within the african american community.
Our poshmark story
When we moved to Ohio, I had a lot of work clothes I never wore. I was thrifting regularly to make upcycled things, so I started to sell stuff on the side. Doug would tell me where I should go, and the goodwill near the salon he worked at had all the good stuff. He gave me insights on when to go too. I would go to work with him sometimes two times a week. It was always lovely to work with him since it meant we had more time together.
I had made several trips to NY to thrift throughout the years, and he would always help me pack sales even after he came home for a day of work. He was always so happy for me when I found the crown jewels. After his passing, I felt Poshmark was the one thing that belonged to us and that I felt most connected to him when I thrift and did Poshmark.
We will be donating 12.22% gross Poshmark sales towards mental health charities on 12/22 each year to honor Douglas’s birthday. With a goal to raise enough money to create a foundation providing “scholarships” to offer free mental health support for qualified individuals.
