GOODS FOR GOOD
THE FIRST REVOLUTION IS WHEN YOU CHANGE YOUR MIND ABOUT HOW YOU LOOK AT THINGS, AND SEE THERE MIGHT BE ANOTHER WAY TO LOOK AT IT, THAT YOU HAVE NOT BEEN SHOWN.
ABOUT Y'ALL COLLECTIVE
Y'all Collective has seen a few iterations but has had the common thread of giving back. Founder, Cait Kelley started with private art fundraisers over 5 years ago and realized we are stronger together. Since teaming up with other artists, makers and goofballs, Y'all Collective has grown into hosting bi-annual makers markets, building platforms for social justice awareness and encouraging positive community growth.
What this means in the tangible form is rallying Portland's most talented to highlight their work while giving back to the community. Our mission is to make art + handmade goods accessible while simultaneously raising funds for incredible local non-profits . In the past year, we have raised over $12000 for beloved organizations including:
Pueblo Unido, REFUTEES, IRCO and the National Network of Abortion Funds (NNAF), Dont Shoot PDX, Defense Fund PDX, Self Enhancement Inc.(SEI), and Native American Youth and Family Center (NAYA).
15% of sales from every purchase are donated to SEI during the months of June and July.
