Cheers to 2019 | Reflecting on 2018
With 2018 wrapping up, we accomplished many things we're proud of. We wanted to take a moment to reflect on the past year and also say thank you.
The Prideletics community grew. Over the past year, we started to find people like you who are passionate about our mission. Some of you are even Prideletics Ambassadors who share your stories with the rest of the community. It's inspiring and exciting to see the number of people connecting with one another.
We gave back. In June we partnered with Athlete Ally, a non-profit dedicated to ending homophobia in sports. We created Pride shirts with them with the phrase "Team Equality" in which $5 of every purchase was donated directly to Athlete Ally. In our first year of a partnership, we raised over $200.
We were featured on TV, radio and a magazine! This part was so exciting as a business. Half a year into business, we got regional exposure with our local, Minnesotan news stations. Shoutout to WCCO Radio and WCCO News for having us on! Then later in the year we were featured in our local LGBT magazine, Lavender, with a story about our story. We also were part of their Holiday Gift Guide featuring two of our most popular products.
Lastly, thank you. I know we say it a lot, but we mean it. Thank you for your kind messages, sending photos of yourself in our gear, living our mission, and (most importantly) being true to who you are. Let's make 2019 just as amazing as 2018. Cheers!
