As mothers, we decided to make a change. In collaboration with Domingo Zapata, we crafted a panda symbol that represented mental health awareness in children and adolescents. Our goal is to create awareness of the panda symbol and the meaning behind it to inspire people and organizations around the world to take action.
Together, Aware, Domingo Zapara, and Northwell Health Hospital held events to raise awareness of children and adolescents with mental health conditions.
Northwell Health Hospital believes in our natural, healing, and sustainable brand attributes. Together, with their team, we have the goal of providing 100% of babies leaving Northwell (40,000 or 1% of all babies born in the USA annually) with an Aware sustainable panda body suit.
A percentage of profits of each licensed purchase of Aware’s product line will go towards our mental health awareness mission. Where we devote our efforts today paves way for the future – in our families, our actions, and our earth.
When we began our sustainable textile business, our plans were put on hold in 2020 when our world faced a global pandemic. Naturally, we wanted to help. We redirected our initiatives and our resources to donate sustainable, hypo-allergenic, anti-bacterial masks to frontline healthcare heroes.
If you want to help us raise awareness of the meaning behind the panda symbol, here’s what you can do:
· Collaborate with us to produce and promote your products with the panda symbol on them
· Each collaboration requires a licensing fee for the panda symbol. With that, a percentage will be given to hospitals to support children and adolescents with mental health issues
