Be Gentle

Be Gentle

Dear friends,

Throughout 2020, I returned often to the mantra "be gentle with yourself" — through personal loss and grief, through our temporary closure, through months of racial and political unrest. As we make our way through this heavy start to the new year, I offer this mantra to you. 

Let's be gentle with ourselves, while also staying engaged and informed. Let's allow ourselves time to rest, and call out racism when we encounter it in our communities, our families and ourselves. Let's embrace our humanness, and name and condemn the white supremacy we witness in action and on display. Let's make space to reflect, and take bold action.

We created the N&G Wellness Pantry as a way to meaningfully support women + BIPOC founded brands — and because we believe that self care is radical and necessary. If you need us, we're here.
