It's The Swim Lessons For Me

*While every package can be purchased as a gift from an ally, this reward option was created specifically for your support!

The USA Swimming Foundation reports that over 70% of Black people don't know how to swim. Additionally, The CDC states that the fatal-drowning rate of Black/African-American children is three times higher than white children. Because we are adamant about making wellness accessible to Black people regardless of income bracket, lessons in-studio lessons will be priced on a sliding scale. Your support will bridge the gap and sponsor five group swimming lessons.

* Also includes inclusion on our website Thank-You Page + Support newsletter

Sustainable Allyship

$150 billion in VC funding went to U.S. start-ups in 2020. Only 0.67% of that went to Black-founded start-ups. Black-owned businesses are struggling because of the pandemic, we need sustainable support that is not rooted in performative ally-ship and DEI quotas. This buy-in allows us to do just that, and more.

You're Part of Something Way Bigger

If you're here, it's because you see where we're going. You understand the lack of diversity in wellness and the need for more Black-owned brick and mortar wellness studios! This investment helps us lock in our flagship location. The work that we intend to do is much bigger than our flagship location, and this investment says that you want to reach higher heights with us, and meet with the team to discuss the cities we'll expand to!
