Until We Can Gather.
COVID-19 has drastically changed our lives: our new normal has us WFH with Kids (#WFHwK), teaching spelling and doing non-stop dishes. We're stressed by 9AM and exhausted at noon. Our hearts go out to everyone who has already been so negatively impacted -- whether it be through health, livelihood or otherwise. Our heroes - the healthcare workers, delivery drivers, warehouse workers and grocery store staff - are worthy of our deep gratitude as we battle this virus.
Here at Superkin, we're just two of the millions of small business owners whose world was turned upside down. Amidst the uncertainty, we're finding comfort in the creative expressions of solidarity. From the nightly 8PM howls in Marin, CA to the rainbows and teddy bears in our neighbors' windows. We're joining a coalition of brands that strive to do the right thing, day in and day out, and gifting our customers 20% off site-wide, and donating 2% of sales to Paid Leave US.
Learn more about Brands For Better, and see a full list of participating brands here.
And, because we can't help ourselves, we've put together some of our favorite activities and diversions to get you through the days at home (or frankly, the next hour). This is not the Pinterest mom resource guide, we will NOT encourage you to make a three-layer Frozen 2 cake with buttercream frosting.
