PHILANTHROPY

Everyone has the power to redefine the world we live in. Words matter. Self-esteem can only emerge when you have the freedom to define yourself, in your own terms. Since words imposed on us by others have the potential to negatively influence our personal identity, The inDEFINED Initiative is dedicated to empowering young people with the ability to truly express themselves, while they redefine these negative labels in society. We strongly believe that this self expression can most effectively be taught through arts education.  

When you shop inDEFINED, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to fund arts education for at-risk youth. Give a child a voice.

Be inDEFINED.
