Learn more about the local non-profits we're supporting for our 51st anniversary!
In celebration of our 51st anniversary and to say thank you to the community that has supported us for so many years, SQecial Media is donating 10% of our total March sales to five local non-profits. We encourage you to familiarize yourself with these groups -- we're very excited to aid their efforts toward reproductive justice, LGBTQIA+ rights, community care, and sustainability, and help bring awareness to their work for our community.
