We Have Ideas that Matter!

COMMON Hoops, an initiative I co-launched during the 2011 Project M Lab, was recently awarded a 2011 SAPPI| Ideas that Matters grant. The Ideas that Matters grant program recognizes and supports designers who utilizes her creative passions and talents towards engaging prominent causes and issues within our local, national, and international communities. As COMMON Hoops strives to this through the fusion of our team’s acumen for design + social justice, and our target communities’ fervor for sports, it is definitely an honor to receive this support to engage with youth in underserved areas. Moreso, Ideas that Matters is a great stepping stone for us as individuals to join and share our voices amongst fellow creative social change advocates who catalyze tremendous efforts in our society’s most deserving communities.
