Together for the goals
#TOGETHERBAND raises awareness about the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals for 2030 through 17 uniquely colored bracelets. Each pack contains two individually packaged bands: one to wear and one to share so you can spread the word about what goal matters most to you and give someone else the opportunity to do the same. The production and money raised from the sales of these bands will help fight injustices such as poverty and gender inequality as well as climate change and unfair labor.

Right now, #TOGETHERBAND is helping to support emergency COVID-19 relief. For the month of April, our partners at #TOGETHERBAND have created TOGETHER FUND to help fight the pandemic and provide aid to those who need it most.
