⚡FLASH AUCTION⚡

Tomorrow, we're kicking off our partnership with the YMCA of San Diego County in a big way!

Throughout the month of May, we'll be helping the Y to shed a light on mental health during their Mental Health Awareness month. How? Every Friday, we'll be running a single-day FLASH auction that will include our favorite Billion Creation Prototype caps -- with ALL proceeds going toward the YMCA of San Diego County's community programs! The contents of these FLASH auctions will be teased every Thursday night, prior to open bidding on Friday.

Starting tomorrow, you'll have from 5AM PST to 930PM PST to bid on our first prototype; a batch of 2 'Savage' styles that never made it to full production.

If you're a true collector, you'll be happy to hear that these caps are the only ones of their kind, and will never be reprinted, recreated, or rereleased.

Learn more about our charitable partnership, what the YMCA is doing to shed light on Mental Health Awareness, and more, at:

Laura did an awesome job today with the water exercise class. Hope this class can continue on a regular basis, weekly and or monthly. She planned it do well with the trampolines, wall of the pool and floater deep end. I thoroughly enjoyed it and know for sure I got a great workout. Thank you Laura I really hope the Y incorporates this water exercise class in their schedule.
Great to be with youth at the Jackie Robinson Family YMCA (YMCA of San Diego County) yesterday. Their willingness to discuss mental health so openly and thoughtfully was an inspiration. Much appreciation to the staff for how they support students and make such dialogue possible.

Take a look at these powerful presenters! 😍

📍Miami

Today Y leaders Laura Muñoz Humphreys (southbayymca & @borderviewymca), TK Halmai-Gillian (@yfs), and Valeria Ruiz (@ymcamx) presented along with @justiceinmotion’s Laura Vasquez and Martha Menendez at the Hispanics in Philanthropy conference!

Together they discussed how their cross-border collaborations support and protect migrants’ rights and well-being. They shared developmentally informed practices that buffer youth from the stress of separations and uncertain journeys and the value of dynamic bi-national support networks.

We are so grateful to have leaders who show up and serve the community in meaningful ways! 🙌🏽
