Being able to spread awareness and support all aspects of our community is an essential part of why we started Onyx+Ivy. We value having a platform to be able to contribute and invest back into our community. We work towards achieving this through donations, product promotions, and sharing the knowledge we have gained through continuous education.
Help us to spread some love by being active in our campaigns or donating to the amazing organizations below.
