Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Projects

WELCOME

It is our desire at Baby Bling to ensure that every member of our community feels included, supported, recognized and respected. To ensure that we are a company that appreciates the importance of these values, we have formed a Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Board.

FEATURED ARTIST


Circe Oropeza

Artist

Circe Oropeza is an illustrator and surface designer happily living in Hidalgo, Mexico. Obsessed with nature's perfection, her work has always been inspired by its shapes, colors, textures and even the sensations and emotions it provokes.

 

"This print is inspired by the gorgeous Lacandon jungle, one of the most impressive ecosystems in Mexico and home of the majestic jaguar, a divine symbol of power and courage revered by The Maya." -Circe

Baby Bling is proud to support DREAMer's Roadmap which is an app created to help undocumented students find scholarships to go to college. For years undocumented students have struggled more than permanent residents or citizen students in everyday situations. But when senior year of high school comes around, it becomes one of the hardest years for an undocumented student. This is the year when most students find out that they don't qualify for FAFSA and the majority of scholarships. First, because they don't have a social security number and second because they are not "legal" permanent residents or citizens of the United States. Many students by this point are discouraged and don't believe that going to college is a possibility. That is why we are very proud to donate to DREAMer's Roadmap.

Carra Sykes is an artist based between Houston and Austin in a small town called Brenham, TX. Her work is meant to be fun, bold, and make people think or laugh. She is constantly curious about how things are made and is always trying to learn something new.

 

"So often, I am inspired by the LGBTQ+ community's strength and love. I am thankful for those who paved a path for us and future generations to be able to live unabashedly as ourselves. I hope to live my life and create art in a way that also inspires and gives back." Carra

Baby Bling is proud to support the LGBTQ+ Community.

INTRODUCING BOW-PEEPS


"Tying Us Together, With a Bow”

Baby Bling is a beautifully diverse community and we are elated to have the opportunity to showcase all of you. We come together for our love of bows, for the excitement of seeing all of our babies grow up and graduate from Itty Bittys, to Knots, to FAB's and DEB's, to clips, scrunchies and beyond. We love to share our most treasured milestone moments, and while the bows tie us together, ultimately it is our shared journey as mothers, fathers, parents, grandparents and caregivers that is the foundation of this community. We hope you, too, will look forward to monthly highlights of our friends, our Bow Peeps.
