Aya Gives Back!
We've tallied our sales and are happy to announce that we've raised $2,800 to pay forward to our fabulous four organizations! We're extremely grateful to our Aya family for all that they've contributed and are grateful to end the year on a high note.
2021 was a year filled with unexpected changes, so why not end it on a high note?
Before ringing in the holidays and New Year, Team Aya’s paying it forward to four organizations that are all about community, mentorship and sustainability:
From November 15-December 17, 10% of our e-commerce proceeds from your online purchases are going to these platforms. We’re a few days away from our give back deadline and we’d love for you to help us finish strong by continuing to holiday shop on our site.
Read up on our four recipients and be on the lookout for our final donation amount!
