Supporting Tipped & Subminimum Wage Workers
Smart&Sexy has always put aside a portion of each purchase to donate to organizations that uplift and support women. Now, more than ever, we realize there is an immediate need for these funds. From Medical Workers, to women owned businesses, to organizations fighting for social justice, we've been teaming up with organizations each month that are helping to make a difference NOW.
For July, we've decided to donate a $1 for every purchase to the One Fair Wage Emergency Fund. In March 2020, in response to the COVID-19 crisis and the mass closures of restaurants and other personal services, One Fair Wage launched the OFW Emergency Fund to provide direct cash assistance to hundreds of thousands of workers, and the High Road Kitchens Program to provide cash relief to small business restaurants that commit to livable wages and working conditions to re-hire workers and provide free meals to those in need.
The moment has also created a tremendous moment of opportunity in the industry, in which restaurant industry leaders are suddenly willing to envision a new business model with livable wages.
