We’ve just released the 206 Together T-Shirt. It is now available for $19.99. $10 from every shirt will be donated directly to The Seattle Artist Relief Fund. Our goal is to donate at least $5,000 to support local artists through this fund. [Ships 7-10 days from purchase]
A Message from Simply Seattle
During the last three months our business has gone through the wringer, like so many others. We’ve had to close stores, furlough staff, and deal with break-ins. It’s been discouraging and exhausting. We also realize that none of our struggles remotely compare to the fear, oppression, and loss of life that black people experience on a daily basis.
Black Lives Matter. The systemic racism in our country is not right and we support our community in the fight to see things change. What we’ve lost in the last few months is replaceable. George Floyd is not replaceable. Ahmaud Arbery is not replaceable. Breonna Taylor is not replaceable.
As a local business, we’ve wrestled with how to help our community. We want to promote and unify powerful messages and powerful people doing important work to help others - to create something that can bring our city closer while helping those in need. In this case we’ve chosen to support The Seattle Artist Relief Fund, who are supporting artists during Covid-19. They have partnered with Langston Seattle, whose vision is to cultivate black brilliance.
Thank you for helping us help others.
The Simply Seattle Team
