In the summer of 2012 we hit the road from San Francisco to Los Angeles in search of the best denim fabric the west coast has to offer. Gisela Castaneda, designer and founder of GC Urbano, was along for the ride. After learning about her involvement with Kiwanis International, the ¡Viva Colombia! project was born. We donated 60 lacrosse sticks, a full bag of balls, and a couple goals to help start Colombia’s first lacrosse program!
In addition, Encore Brand donated 50 bicycles to the children of the community. Providing these bicycles will not only give a means of transportation, but also the ability for these children to get to school and receive an education. To learn more about the project and the organizations involved, check out the video below:
