PRIDE MONTH IS HERE!
And as a gay-owned business, we're super excited because, before moving to the US from a developing country we've never felt that pride was ours until now, when we get to be ourselves and have our company be an extension of who we are, how we feel and what we believe in. For us, it's like coming out again!
So we teamed up with LOVELOUD, an organization founded by Dan Reynolds, lead singer of Imagine Dragons that focuses on helping at risk LGBTQ+ youth to create the WunderkeksxLoveLoud Special Edition Box.
We're putting our money were our mouth is, so starting today, and for the whole month of June, $1 off every dozen we sell is going directly to the LOVELOUD foundation!
Other than that, we wanted our Special Pride Box to scream to the world THIS IS WHO WE ARE! So it's loud, colorful, in touch with our inner child, a bit naughty, PROUD AS HELL and welcoming to all!
Why does my box of Wunderkeks cookies look extra special and festive?
During PRIDE month, June, we decided to partner up and support the LOVELOUD Foundation. As you might know, Wunderkeks is a proud LGBTQ+ owned company and for us it is very important to use our voice and help this cause. We decided that during PRIDE month, we will be donating $1 per every dozen cookies sold. The proceeds from this collaboration will go to the LOVELOUD Foundation which lends support to various local and national LGBTQ+ charities.
That’s super cool but… What’s the LOVELOUD Foundation?
Ready for a cool story? The LOVELOUD Foundation was founded in 2017 by Dan Reynolds, that’s right, the lead singer of Imagine Dragons! It was created to help ignite the relevant and vital conversation of what it means to unconditionally love, understand, accept and support LGBTQ+ youth in an effort to keep families together. Cool huh?!
Is it really that bad?
OH YES... Statistics have shown that the LGBTQ+ youth in unaccepting homes and communities are eight times more likely to die by suicide and three times more likely to engage in risky drug use. And we all believe that these stats need to change ASAP.
How does LOVELOUD make an impact?
LOVELOUD is the catalyst for bringing communities together to ignite a conversation that celebrates individuality. It all begins with talking about, sharing and showing the realities of what LGBTQ+ teens face daily, and creating a safe place for an engaged, passionate and supportive audience in the fight against teen suicide. LOVELOUD offers hope to young people, letting them know they’re not alone and encouraging acceptance in the home and community. For more information visit: loveloudfest.com.
