Fae Crate, as both a business and a voice, has grown so quickly in such a short time. We could not be more grateful to each and every person who helped get us to where we are. If there's one thing that the entire team can agree on, it's that it's important to share that success with others.
Of everything we've been able to do since opening in 2018, what we are most proud of is what we have been able to give back into the world. In 2019 we were able to donate $17,561 from profits, donate books and items to multiple charities, and even plant a few trees . We also worked with the bookish community to raise over $9834.93 through your donations.
As time moves forward, we will continue to support those in need, and non-profit organizations whose missions align with our own.
Fae Crate is an openly Pro LGBTQ+, Pro Black Lives Matter, Pro Immigration, Pro Choice, Pro Science, Pro Education and Pro Feminism company. We believe in supporting those who are in need. We believe in Equal Rights for All. We are unapologetically proud of that.
