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


Carra Sykes

Artist

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. For all purchases of products featuring the Carra Sykes design, we will be donating to Encircle. “Encircle was created with the goal of bringing together families and communities to enable LGBTQ+ youth to thrive. We offer therapy, programming, and services to LGBTQ+ youth, families, and communities."

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 FABs and DEBs, 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.
