R2R and Things That Matter: 2019 Positive Impact Review

by Things That Matter Team January 10, 2020

Happy new year, advocates! We want to start the year by thanking you all for an amazing 2019.

We couldn't have done it without all of you who showed love on our socials & even in person, attended our events and pop-ups, shared the advocacy and culture to others, and, of course, supported our artisans and communities by purchasing our pieces. Thank you so much!



As you know, we are always excited to share news of our new products, designs, and events––but we are even more excited when it comes to sharing news about impact!⁠ Although we still have a long way to go and there is still so much work to do in the world, we want to celebrate the small wins we've attained through the help of our amazing community of advocatesbrand partners, and corporate collaborators.

So here is our 2019 Positive Impact Review, along with our promises for 2020.

Thank you for weaving joyful stories with us, advocates! Here's to creating more significant and inclusive change together in the coming years.
