QNS COLLAB

We are excited to share that we were Vendor Members at QNS Collab's first storefront in the last quarter of 2021. Through that, we provided an opportunity for six different artists to vend their items for profit.

 Learn-a-thons

During each cultural month we strive to celebrate the accomplished of historical and local leaders.

During Black History Month, we hosted our very first ever Learn-A-Thon on instagram--where we asked followers to post about black history. Each post would equate to a donation to local black-led organizations. This effort led to a few posts and $50 raised for Black Land Ownership, and Transform America.
