We have some exciting news from Joy McBrien (B.S.B. '11, Carlson School of Management), Owner of Fair Anita. Check out her recent announcement:
"Happy Women's History Month! No surprise, but I love March-- reflecting on the inspiring women who have gotten us to where we are today, and thinking about all the present-day womxn who are making incredible things happen. You, of course, are a part of that.
I'm excited to share with you today our Annual Benefit Report. As always, we're reflecting on and reporting our impact from the previous year-- and as we all know, 2020 was a doozy. When the pandemic hit, I didn't know if we would make it; managing international logistics during a global pandemic, and then selling accessories as many of our customers are facing financial hardships... it seemed rather impossible. But, you all stood by our small business and *showed up* for us and our beloved artisan partners.
As a result, we're proud to announce that we sent $377,721.68 in regenerative income to our artisan partners in 2020, plus an additional $75,000 in donations from the sale of face masks.
Our work is possible because you, our incredible community, choose to support ethical supply chains, shopping small, and women-centered businesses."
-Joy McBrien, Owner of Fair Anita
