We at Airbit are committed to helping to affect change and bring an end to racial injustice.
Over the last few days, as we have listened and reflected, we have sent donations to Grassroots Law, the Minnesota Freedom Fund, and World Food Program USA.
We stand humbly in solidarity with our black communities around the world. To that end, Airbit will donate 100% of proceeds for one day to organizations involved in the protests, as well as policy change and youth arts programming.
For those interested in joining us, a number of organizations are asking for financial support. Some use donations to make bail for peaceful protestors, others aim to impact policy change, while others provide arts programming to underserved youth.
Together, we can create a new and better future.
