A BRAND THAT CARES EQUALLY AS MUCH ABOUT STYLE AS ABOUT FELLOW HUMANS
Handle w/ Care is an idea derived from passion and interest. Twins Bianca and Elton Sjoenell have been involved in different service organizations throughout the years, but ever since they joined Teen Line, each taking the intense 65-hour mental health training and volunteering weekly, they realized the enormous pressure of fundraising for non-profit organizations. Through Handle w/ Care, Bianca and Elton’s goal is to help nonprofits fundraise to allow them to focus on the services they provide.
With Bianca’s background in fashion design and a joint interest with Elton in street fashion, they fused their passion for community service to create a street wear brand that lets young (and old) wear their heart on their sleeve. Literally. When you purchase Handle w/Care merchandise, you can feel good about 100% of the proceeds going to sponsored non-profit organizations plus look amazing wearing the clothes. It’s a win-win for the consumer, the brand and the organizations with whom they collaborate.
To date, Handle w/Care has two sponsored organizations; Teen Line, a crisis hotline for teens by teens, and Dewdrops Little Flower, an organization that provides medically disabled orphans with comprehensive care in Beijing, China.
