Jacob's Goods has always been a place of inclusivity. It's the foundation of which I built my brand. We are an Orlando based t-shirt company that was created when I designed our still very popular Love is Love tee. It was created in honor of the 49 we lost in the Pulse shooting in 2016. Creating Magical, Disney themed tees is something that I fell into later, and I enjoy, and have met amazing people on that journey, but being an advocate and teaching my child that love has no limit or color is my primary mission.
With the death of George Floyd and the rising of awareness and involvement with the Black Lives Matter movement, it has made me stop and re-evaluate how much I do and what more I could do to be more involved with change, if even just on the local level.
In support of the protesters here in Orlando, we set up a fund raiser, where all our sticker proceeds went to the Orlando Dream Defenders and their Bail Out Fund. We were able to raise and donate over $800. My platform may not be as large as the next, but every little bit helps and our hearts and intentions are just as great. Our design, "This Is The Way" was created to raise more money and awareness for the Orlando Dream Defenders and their organization. Also portions of our proceeds any time you purchase a Pride inspired item will be donated to the onePulse Foundation.
We will continue to grow and love as a brand, but always Love Is Love and We Stand With You!
