DorcasCreates Official Pin
The Official DorcasCreates Pin!
A beautiful Gold plated lapel pin, approximately 4cm in size
This pin design is inspired by my brand logo - the multiple patterns and mark making on the pin represents my influences and the multiple ideas I have running through my head at any given moment.
One thing I've wanted to do for a long time is donate a portion of proceeds to a charitable organisations. My brand is about championing and celebrating Black women and Black girls and I think its important now more than ever for businesses and creatives to support charities and grassroots organisations that are positively impacting our local communities.
Thus for the months of April and May - 50% of all proceeds from the sale of this pin will go towards the London Artist & Creatives Coronavirus Fund. Set up by London based creatives Josh Akapo and Denzel Kessie; who are hoping to raise £20,000 to support London based creatives affected by job cancellations as a result of Covid-19. They hope to support at 100 creatives with funds of £200 to put towards rent, bills, etc to support themselves.
Whilst there is Government support for freelancers/self-employed available, this will not be accessible until the end of June and unfortunately many freelancers will still be ineligible to apply for it. Funds like this are a lifeline to the thousands of London based creatives struggling at this time.
