GW Art is in the Vitamin M December box in the USA!

Kerryanne Croft of the Vitamin M box says trying to fit in is boring, create the change you want to see.

What’s the Vitamin M box?

Based in New Jersey, Kerryanne saw a lack of support and love for Black owned businesses. She wanted to change that, so The Vitamin M Subscription Box was born. M is for Melanin, the dark brown to black pigment occurring in our skin.

Vitamin M isn’t just a subscription box. It is a movement to not only support these substantial businesses, but to help build their communities and share their stories. The Vitamin M box delivers brands in the form of beauty, fashion, books, home and lifestyle produced by people of colour to your doorstep.

Every 3rd month, Kerryanne donates 10% of the proceeds to a charity/non-profit in the Black and Brown community.

Kerry believes we need to continue to highlight these entrepreneurs over businesses that don’t see or respect their shine.

GW Art is a part of the Vitamin M box for December and the boxes are sold out!
