DID YOU KNOW:

As a socially conscious brand, BRAID strives to always put people first. When you purchase a BRAID product, you are doing so much more than buying into natural beauty and wellness; you become an agent of change. We believe in the power of serving others, so for every product sold, BRAID gives to life changing supplies, mentorship and aid for homeless children through Hope Supply Co. We want to share how your contribution to BRAID also betters the lives of the underprivileged youth in Dallas.
WHO THEY ARE:
- Hope Supply Co. has been serving the homeless for over 25 years. Their mission is to meet the critical needs of homeless children in North Texas. Every night, more than 1,100 children fall asleep in a homeless shelter, car, or other places not fit for human habitation. These are the hidden homeless and many people are not aware of the enormous and growing problem of child homelessness in our great state. These children are experiencing homelessness through no fault of their own. Their circumstances rob them of the ability to experience the childhood that all children deserve.
WHAT THEY DO:
- Hope Supply Co. maintains a large warehouse that stores and delivers an on demand array of critical items for children. These items are distributed to their more than 58 partner homeless services agencies for the children when they need them.
WHAT THEY PROVIDE:
- Hygiene Items
- School Uniforms
- School Supplies
- Baby Formula
A FEW FACTS:
- 96% of Hope Supply Co.’s revenue goes to their 55+ partners.
- 44,000 children are served annually through Hope Supply Co.’s efforts.
- $2.5 million value of critical items are distributed annually by Hope Supply Co.
- 20,000 diapers (the most essential commodity for young children) are distributed weekly from Hope Supply Co.
