GIFTS FOR THE COMMUNITY

Made in Chinatown is the merchandise line created by Welcome to Chinatown (a grassroots organization formed at the beginning of the COVID pandemic to help fight xenophobia and partner with small businesses in the community to generate revenue and keep their lights on). The merchandise is created by a volunteer on the Design team of Welcome to Chinatown and all profits are given to the small business that the the item is branded upon!
These small businesses are the backbone of local Chinese and Southeast Asian community — they are the most vulnerable to displacement and gentrification. And even if you live outside of LA, I hope you'll give back to your local Chinese restaurants during this especially difficult time.
