The holiday season is generally seen as a time for giving. Although we are here to help you find gifts this holiday season, we are also committed to giving back to the community through something besides our merchandise.
If you’re as terrible at wrapping gifts as we are, these gift boxes — complete with tissue paper and golden elastic ties — will look great under your Christmas tree while giving you some extra time to make those chocolate chip cookies for Santa.
This holiday season we will be donating 100% of the proceeds from every Oaklandish gift box to five different Oakland-based nonprofits. These five organizations have proven their dedication to Oakland and its residents, and we are thrilled to continue to support their efforts. The five groups receiving a portion of the proceeds from our 2015 holiday gift boxes are Hack the Hood, Zoo Labs, Mamacitas Cafe, Destiny Arts Center, and Cat Town Cafe!
Throughout the month of December, we will have a fun way to vote in-store on where the proceeds go! You’ll get a token for each gift box purchased, and then we will distribute the proceeds based on customer votes, so you’ll have a direct impact on these nonprofits. For more information, and to cast your vote, stop by our downtown Oakland or Fruitvale retail stores starting this Friday. Voting window will end December 31st of this year.
