SIZING: sm/md hug ring — adjustable 5/6 & md/lg hug ring — adjustable 7/8.
This hug ring is the hug you want to give and get when you aren't able to in person.
Since the start of quarantine, the sales from this hug ring have raised over $22,000 for warm meals for health care providers working around the clock to keep our community safe.
As quarantine lifted, the needs in our community shifted. For the rest of the summer $16 of each bronze hug ring and $24 of each silver hug ring sold will go to support Front Yard Bikes. FYB provides kids with their own bike kit and teaches them how to build it at home right in their front yard, socially distant and safe.
Front Yard Bikes is the grassroots effort for SO MUCH GOOD in the most underserved parts of our Baton Rouge community.
“The heart of our program is motivated by compassion for kids from low-income families that are willing to work for what they get. We hope to impact the youth of Baton Rouge, one bike at a time, one heart at a time, because the youth of today are the leaders of tomorrow.”
Their work goes way beyond building bikes though. Don’t let the name fool you - FYB offers a variety of teaching programs: how to care for a garden (with yummy food to take home,) hands-on welding experience, weekly educational and recreational bike field trips, the option to work in the shop to earn a bike while learning the ins and outs of their mechanics and maintenance, weekly tutoring sessions and more.
It might seem like a small gesture, but building your own bike to a kid is the equivalent of building your own car. The time and energy on carefully putting each part together just right is investment in teaching them skills, problem solving and finishing a project through to completion. Kids deserve to feel empowered, confident and capable and FYB is helping them achieve that.
Each piece varies slightly due to its handmade nature.
