At Dear Babe, we're all about giving back. This is why a portion of all our revenue is going to be directly forwarded to providing mental health resources. "Look better, feel better" only goes so far, and we want our valued customers to know that it's okay to not be okay. Our founders have personal experience with mental health illnesses and know how severe the feelings can really be. That being said, we know how important it is to raise the collective consciousness for mental health and do our part with this platform.
When you shop with us, you can rest assured knowing that you're helping a good cause. We will be choosing a different mental health resource foundation every few months to make our brand beyond just selling clothes.
Who we've supported:
Therapy For Black Girls
Dear Babe is an inclusive brand and strives to be the strongest allies we can for #BlackLivesMatter. With this in mind, our first round of donations are going to be provided directly to Therapy For Black Girls, a company we researched heavily and feel aligns with our goals to give back, especially considering the heavy stigma surrounding mental health for BIPOC. This foundation encourages the mental wellness of Black women and girls, and aims to make therapists more accessible.

Let's be real with you: 2020 has been hard for everyone. Mental health support is always at the forefront of our minds, especially now. Year round our goal is to support the invisible fight so many of us are going through. We have dedicated our second round of donations to the Jed Foundation, an organization committed to protecting emotional health and preventing suicide for our nations teens and young adults.
