Our First-Ever Secret Santa, Artist Portrait Swap

December 06, 2014

It’s become tradition around here to have fun with Holiday/New Year’s Cards and as this year’s holiday season approached, in addition to our normal holiday cards to friends and customers, we wanted to do something new with our artists. We thought about how much we love getting to know the artists who contribute work to our campaigns but about how it’s always a 1-1 connection, us to them and back. We have yet to do much to help connect our artists with each other. That’s why about a month ago we invited anyone who has contributed to a CAN campaign to signup for a Secret Santa Portrait Swap. The idea was that everyone would create a portrait of a fellow CAN artist and receive one from someone else. 39 talented and incredibly diverse individuals of all ages and from all over the world signed up and are now receiving their gorgeous portraits and their first personal contact from another CAN artist! Thanks to everyone who participated! Take a look at their work:

Bonus Selfies!! I'll keep adding them as they come in:

We've Given Away 4,000 Free Masks (and Counting)

August 24, 2020

We're excited to announce our new face mask collection that gives free masks to workers! For every mask we sell, we donate a mask to a essential worker who needs one. We've already distributed 4,000 free masks since July and we're so grateful to everyone who helped us get this project off the ground. A huge thank you to Coworker.org for getting our masks out into the world and to Economic Security Project for their generous support. Thanks to all the artists who contributed designs to this project and for always being so enthusiastic about our art campaigns. And thanks to you, our customers, for helping us get more masks into the hands of essential workers who need them!

The Best Election Year Gifts for Feminists

August 10, 2020

Elections are coming and the excitement of change is in the air! As we gear up to vote in a few months and look forward to a better future, we can't help but think back to a century ago when the 19th Amendment was officially adopted and women finally won the right to vote. It's been a hundred years and we've come a long way, but there are is still plenty of work to be done, which is why we've partnered with independent artists to create a collection of the best feminist gifts as we head into November. Every feminist gift we sell helps support UltraViolet organization in their hard work to advance the cause of all women, and we won't stop marching until there's equality for all.
