The most widely used metaphor, to explain a complex transformation, is the metamorphosis of a caterpillar into a butterfly.“We believe, like a caterpillar’s cocoon provides the perfect environment for it to become a beautiful butterfly, that uniting, our communities can provide the necessary resources to create successful entrepreneurs in creative industries.” -RRAmong those whom we feel we can benefit most are artists. Our approach is holistic, helping emerging artists become successful without having to solely rely on their own talents. We know that providing guidance, resources and opportunities can make the difference, especially to those whose circumstances have created struggle. Inspired by Toms Shoes’, One for One business model, we direct the support of our like-minded partners and aligned client base to provide resources for those in need of trauma relief and/or members of low income areas.Our goal is to invest a large portion of The Denim Nation & Trend Stream profits into assisting the education of youth while offering credible career-building opportunities to emerging artists. To date, we’ve featured a variety of emerging artists in our marketing materials, introduced youth to entrepreneurship opportunities and collaborated with a variety of like-minded businesses on community projects.
Your involvement is vital to the long term success of our initiative. Unlike a caterpillar every individual can not solely provide the necessary resources to become successful. Most successes are a result of a small network of family, community members and/or teachers/mentors providing a cocoon that keeps a child focused and away from distraction. In similar fashion, with your help we can make the phrase “it takes a village” a new reality for thousands of children artists and members of our community, just as family builds cocoons for their loved ones. Whether you are a parent, a business owner, consumer, a creative artist or an athlete, please play a role in helping make it easier for the next generation to overcome economic disparities.
