Social Awareness Clothing Brand and Movement; Founded by Advocates With Lived Experience
Involvd® Is More Than a Clothing Brand
We are a mental health and social awareness movement committed to creating change. Our goal is to empower individuals to create a more just and equitable world. We believe that collective action can create transformative change.
We are Involvd® because we are determined to be the generation that says enough is enough, and we hope you join us in our mission for a better future.
The idea for Involvd® came about when we noticed a troubling trend happening within our own social circles. People had become so isolated within their own echo chambers that they had lost the ability (or willingness) to see other perspectives.
It was then that we realized the power that clothing has to start conversations and break down barriers; especially when designs are created in a respectful and empathetic way. And so, with a mission to promote mental health and social awareness, and unite people from all walks of life, Involvd® was born.
Involvd® Launched in November, 2020
We launched in November, 2020—right in the midst of a global pandemic, devastating wildfires, civil unrest, and economic hardship. It was a daunting time to start a business, but we knew that our message was needed now more than ever. We are grateful for the incredible support we've received from our customers and community since launch. Together, we are showing the world that America is involved.
What Involvd® Stands For
We believe that through open dialogue and understanding we can collectively create change. We are committed to providing a platform for underrepresented voices and promoting critical thinking around important issues. Our hope is that by encouraging people to have tough conversations, we can help create a more inclusive world where everyone feels heard and valued.
In addition to our premium garments, we also offer a community for like-minded people to connect with one another. Our website features blog posts on a variety of topics related to social awareness, allowing our customers to learn more about the issues they care about.
In 2023, we will launch our iOS app that will feature the Involvd® e-commerce clothing & apparel store as well as host the Involvd® Millennial, Gen Z, & Alpha generation community mental health forum; to create conversations around important issues within their communities. The forum will be managed by our Millenials & Gen Z Mental Health & Social Awareness Advocates at Team Involvd®.
We are proud to offer products from other socially aware brands. By supporting businesses that are aligned with our values, we can create impactful change together.
Now more than ever, it's important that we come together as a community and support one another. If you're looking for clothing that makes a statement or you want to get involved in a movement larger than yourself - join us on this journey as we work towards creating a better world for everyone. We welcome you to BeGetStay Involvd®.
