What We Do
We create exclusive products made to fund social impact projects.
Why We Need Your Help
Collaboration = power. Able Made began when designers I admired came together, collaborating with me to develop products for funding the foundation I started to honor my husband that left us unexpectedly and far too soon. Surrounded and inspired by their incredible talent and compassion, I experienced the power of collaboration firsthand. It not only carried me through the loss of my best friend, but also it made my foundation far more able to do amazing things for inner city youth.
We’re asking you to collaborate with us and help fund Able Made’s first 2014 collection in time for Valentines Day. Each piece in the line will fund a specific social impact project.

Where Your Money Will Go
While Able Made starts with my story, today it extends far beyond. Our beautifully designed, exclusive products are made by amazing designers and brands, and fund charitable projects around the globe. 100% of the proceeds from this fundraiser will be used to produce Able Made’s upcoming 2014 collection and help promote it through spring.
We are currently talking to designers and potential new products and causes they care about, so the products are charities they support are still to be determined. But here are just some of the initiatives our products have been able to support to date:
We've sent children to school with our Able Made x Public School Lobo Tote for Pencils of Promise.
We’ve helped protect the environment with our Able Made x Melissa Joy Manning Earth Love Jewelry Collection benefiting Earthworks and Able Made x Loomstate Swale Zip Hoodie benefiting Surfrider Foundation.
We’ve provided jobs to those at risk for human trafficking with our Able Made x The Brave Collection Kiri Klahan Bracelet for the Somaly Mam Foundation and Able Made x WHIT Peru Dot Clutch for Not For Sale.
We’ve provided jobs for those transitioning out of homelessness with our Able Made x The Giving Keys Able Bracelets.
We’ve brought beautiful music to classrooms with Able Made x Threadless It Grows on Trees Tees for VH1 Save the Music Foundation.
We've empowered Trinidad and Tobago youth through the arts through with our Able Made x Anya Ayoung Chee Warrior Scarf through TallMan Foundation.
We've supported fashion designers in the U.S. with our Able Made x Shashi Natasha CFDA Jewelry Collection through CFDA Foundation.
We’ve made communities stronger and healthier with our Loomstate for Able Made Power in Numbers Tees and Able Made x UnderConsideration / Able Made x Alan Dye Water Bottles through the Ucal McKenzie Breakaway Foundation.
We’re so incredibly proud of what we’ve done together, but we’re just getting started. WE NEED YOUR HELP TO DO MORE!
Other Ways You Can Help
While every dollar helps us make more amazing products that fund more impact projects, we know some people are more able to give monetarily than others. That’s why we encourage you to make an impact on our campaign any and every way you can:
Spread the word! Email family, friends, coworkers – anyone and everyone you think may want to make the world a better place through their purchasing. Don’t forget to add a personal note!
Tweet about our campaign, Pin It, or post it on Tumblr Facebook, your blog or vlog (however you like to share). The more people we have spreading the word, the more people we can potentially help.
TOGETHER WE CAN ACHIEVE MORE THAN WE EVER COULD ALONE! For additional inspiration go behind the scenes of the making of last season’s products, watch our Hearts + Minds documentary series
