We believe it is our responsibility to use our platform to support our community. We have incorporated a Youth Entrepreneurship Program into our business to provide education, insight, and experience into what it takes to start and grow a business in a fun way. Each year we sponsor a Youth Entrepreneur Award and a Youth Fashion Designer Award in which winners receive a cash prize, business coaching, and a free booth at our expo for exposure. We want to encourage children to dream about what they can be and positive impacts they can have on their community through their own small business.

We also use our influence to support a local non-for-profit each year. We provide them with a complimentary booth at our expo, we provide a free gift to anyone that makes a donation to them at the expo, and we host several contests during the event in which the entry fees go to the non-for-profit.
