Many years back, the “Lift Local” phrase was born as a casual response to Shop Local, the American Express small business Saturday theme that originated ten years ago. This past year the “Lift Local” concept and what it stands for has been catapulted to new heights. We are quite literally here and writing this email because “Lift Local” is genuinely what you stand (or lift) for. Ten years ago, Defined was built to welcome all and to appreciate the strength of those who walked through our doors. In choosing to “Lift Local”, you’ve made a conscious decision to keep them wide open.
Additionally, “Lift Local” has turned into our unofficial Defined Scholarship motto as well. Our scholarship program originated by one of our members who was leaving temporarily but wanted to keep paying and donate his membership to someone in need. Five months later, and we continue to increase the number of member donated memberships to one another. In all honesty, after ten years, this ranks as one of the top few things we are proud of.
We have about 26 hours left on the Lift Local pre-order. Five dollars from every item sold is going back to the Defined Scholarship program. New sweatshirts, aprons, bags, crop tops, and more are on there. Grab something nice for yourself, and then something for someone special. All orders will either be in house or shipped worldwide by next week.
Have a great day, everyone! See you soon.
