Giving back is part of our business philosophy. We are not just in the business of designing and selling; we make it a point to give back wherever possible and giving back gives us joy, motivation, and enthusiasm. We currently work with two charities for different reasons. Growing up in Toronto, Malene had plenty of LGBTQ friends and she’s heard many of their emotional stories about abandonment, betrayal, and even death by the hands of others. To change people’s lives, Jorgensen donates portions of sales from various products to a charity called Rainbow Railroad, a charity that works to help people get asylum. The charity helps people who are members of the LGBTQ community and helps get them to safety if they are living in a country where their lives are in danger.
Malene also donates to a charity called African Preschool Society. In January 2016, Malene traveled to South Africa and spent time in the country. Here, she saw the need for children’s education in various provinces. She decided to donate to African Preschool Society because the charity donates 100% of proceeds to building schools, preschools, and creating safe daycare centres with security.
