Sarah Adams of Baltimore started her clothing company Wire and Honey as a way to address social issues in kid-friendly ways. She says their t-shirts provide “teachable moments” for kid activists.
“At Wire and Honey, we try to inspire social change through tiny humans. This means that we preach inclusivity, compassion, love, and acceptance. We believe the best way to do this is to lead by example. This is why we jumped at the chance to partner with Shoes That Fit. Together with our amazing customers, we were able to bring the program to Baltimore and make a real, significant, and tangible impact right here in our own community. To be able to bring this program to our home means the world to us. The children of our city need love, confidence, and encouragement, and we are thrilled to help provide that with Shoes That Fit.”
Wire and Honey has been selling Shoes That Fit related merchandise on their site for the past several months and all $3,000 of the proceeds went towards new shoes for 100 kids at Govans Elementary School in Baltimore.
Twenty-three percent of people living in Baltimore are living in poverty and for a child, having a new pair of shoes is just one less thing they need to worry about when heading to school.
Thank you to Wire and Honey and all its customers for sending these kids Back To School with confidence, hope, dignity and joy.
