If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s to be intentional with everything we do. From prioritizing our own health to realizing how precious time is to reaffirming all we have to be thankful for, this year feels different. This year is the season of intention.

 

This holiday season we are committed to offering you gifts that keep on giving through thoughtful gift sets. And meaningful donations that do more than just say, “Happy Holidays.”

 

How We Are Giving Intentionally This Holiday Season

 

Black Girl Ventures

This holiday season, Equilibria is donating 5% of every holiday set sale to benefit Black Girl Ventures.

Giving Intentionally This Holiday SeasonFounded in 2016, Black Girl Venture’s mission is to provide Black/Brown women-identifying founders with access to community, capital, and capacity building in order to meet business milestones that lead to economic advancement through entrepreneurship. They ignite civic engagement and hyperlocal infrastructure at the intersection of business support services, supplier diversity, social and financial capital.

 

Serial entrepreneur and computer scientist Shelly Bell founded Black Girl Ventures to address the unique challenges Black and Brown women face in accessing social and financial capital to grow their businesses. The BGV Style competition is the largest pitch competition globally for Black women founders. It uniquely combines the premise of Shark Tank and Kickstarter by activating community participation in donating to support women-owned businesses directly. They have funded 76 women of color. Held over 25 BGV Pitch Programs across 8 cities. And served over 170 participants. Learn more about Black Girl Ventures here.

 

Visual Artist Patricia Vargas

Giving Intentionally This Holiday SeasonAs part of every holiday set, we’re including an exclusive, artist-designed pouch to hold all your Equilibria treasures. 

 

Patricia Vargas, founder and owner of Parima Studios in Chino, CA, is a visual artist obsessed with all things color. A former acrylic painter and designer, she has always been enthralled with technology. And one day discovered that she could combine her passions to create painterly imagery by using a computer as her canvas. And a drawing tablet as her brush.

 

Now, she creates custom large-scale abstract art for design lovers who are looking to add a distinct wow-factor to their blank walls. Learn more about Patricia and Parima Studios here.
