When our founder, Alexis Rosenbaum, first started Rosebud it was important to her to have the ability to give back. At Rosebud, we’re committed to equity within the cannabis community, while helping people have access to health and the help they need.
In 2020 we were able to donate nearly $20,000 and we’re committed to continue to give back, but it’s important to note that none of this would be possible without your continued support. Know that each purchase you make gives us the opportunity to help the organizations that we believe in.
Below we’re highlighting the organizations we’ve donated to and hope you feel inspired to donate to them as well this 4/20 holiday and beyond…
Brooklyn Defender Services is a public defender organization that represents nearly 35,000 people each year who are not able to afford an attorney. Their staff consists of specialized attorneys, social workers, investigators, paralegals and administrative staff who are experts in their individual fields. To learn more or to donate, visit their website here.
The Equity Org is a non-profit organization working to dismantle unjust and ineffective criminal justice penalties and practices, and replace them with a common-sense, public-health focused approach to drug policy. Learn more about their efforts and ways to donate by clicking here.
The Floret Coalition is an anti-racist collective of small businesses in the cannabis and cannabis-adjacent space supporting and funding equity-oriented actions via monthly donations and social campaigns. Together, they’re working to raise funds and awareness for organizations prioritizing the needs of Black, Latinx, and Indigenous communities. If you’re interested in joining The Floret Coalition, learn more here.
Through our commitment with The Floret Coalition, we’ve donated to several organizations so far, including My Sistah’s House, Voix Noire, ADABI Healing Shelter, Black Feast, and The Free Black Women’s Library – to learn more about these organizations, visit here.
We were also able to donate 200 of our CBD Bath Soaks to Hospital Beauty Donations which supported COVID-19 frontline workers.
While we’re proud of the work we’ve done so far, we know there is much more to be done. Every donation makes a difference, and we’ve found that setting up recurring donations allows us to remain committed. If you have any organizations you think we should know about, email firstname.lastname@example.org or shoot us a DM on Instagram. And thank you again for your continued support!
