$30,000 Raised by The Mailworks in Fundraiser to Support Black Lives Matter Movement
Through visiting the Mailworks website, customers can choose one of four 8.5” x 11” vinyl decals for $10. All proceeds from the sale of these decals will support a Black-owned organization or enterprise of their choice on the website. Customers also have an opportunity to increase their donation as well.
“The Mailworks stands proudly in solidarity with the Black community and the Black Lives Matter movement," said Brianne Baggetta, president and CEO of The Mailworks. “It is our hope that these proceeds can help expand this incredibly important movement and to ensure that Black voices and the voices of people of color are heard loud and clear.”
The decals have been printed on the Xerox iGen 5 at The Mailworks. This 2015 model printer offers a fifth color option, boost press uptime and multiple speed choices and can produce up to 150 pages per minute.
This project was made possible through collaboration efforts with Jammella Anderson, an Albany-based changemaker and rising voice for black and brown communities.
“I am excited, encouraged and fired up to march forward. We are grateful because, with your contribution, we can help amplify melanated voices. From the bottom of my heart, I thank Mailworks for seeing and supporting our vision and helping it come to life. Today and everyday Black Lives Matter,” said Anderson.
"Through this meaningful collaboration with Jammella, we are able to amplify the influence she and many others have in these communities to a larger, broader audience," Baggetta noted.
Vinyl decals are repositionable and removable. Items are shipped within one business day.
The first organization to be part of the fundraiser is Root3d Healing, based in Downtown Albany. According to its founder, Root3d is “here to center the liberation, healing, and power of POC in the Albany community by rooting within the three dimensions: the mind, body, and spirit.” More information can be found by visiting root3dhealing.com.
