As we say in Brazil, “TUDO PASSA” (everything passes) - and we want to extend a special thank you to all of those on the front line who are working to combat Covid-19.
We truly are a global brand and our community of customers come from every corner of the world. Born and raised in Rio, I am particularly aware of the difficulties certain communities face and can only imagine how much tougher this has recently become.
We are pleased to announce that we are partnering with Brazil Foundation (www.brazilfoundation.org) to help distribute food & medical supplies and provide sanitation to children living in Rio's poorest areas, where the lack of essential services has left these communities particularly vulnerable.
We are aiming to raise $15,000 through the sale of our new limited edition beach bat sets - the proceeds of which will be donated to Abraço Campeão, part of the Brazil Foundation which supports those affected by armed conflict by providing opportunities and inspiring them to take control of their futures. This money will directly aid these children and their families who are now also suffering from the impact of the virus.
Each limited edition set is engraved with the Portuguese word “SAUDADE” - which translates to “a longing for.” We hope that by buying these bats and helping this worthy cause, you will be able to find moments of joy during this difficult time.
We hope you will join us in this effort as we pledge our support to the community who has provided us with so much more than inspiration over the years. We need each other now more than ever, and we couldn't be more grateful for your contribution via your purchase.
Um forte abraço and stay safe (A big hug)
