The/Studio recently made a $5,112 contribution to the Center for Women & Enterprise (CWE), which they raised through a week-long campaign recognizing International Women's Day. The Pasadena, CA-based custom product manufacturer gave customers the option of donating 5 percent of each purchase made between March 8 and 14 to CWE. The/Studio cited the official 2021 International Women's Day theme, "#ChooseToChallenge" as the catalyst for the fundraising campaign.

"We #ChooseToChallenge ourselves in better supporting [entrepreneurs] in [their] creative dreams and endeavors," said The/Studio on a flyer advertising the campaign. "The/Studio values entrepreneurship and we have always wanted to inspire everyone to start and build their own business. CWE is in line with this value and we are excited to push through this initiative with them."

"The financial success of women is critical to the economy as a whole, so it's important—especially in light of the economic fallout caused by the pandemic—to support them so they can in turn lift up their communities," says CWE CEO Gaby King-Morse. "Thanks to the generosity of The/Studio and their customers, we will be able to enhance our programming, continue helping women start and grow their businesses, and ensure that all women have access to our services, regardless of their economic status."
