Welly Partnering With PFLAG For Pride Month

Premium first aid brand, Welly is excited to announce they have partnered with PFLAG to celebrate Pride month. 

Founded in 1973 after the simple act of a mother publicly supporting her gay son, PFLAG is the nation’s first and largest organization for LGBTQ+ people, their parents and families, and allies. 

With over 400 chapters and 200,000 members and supporters crossing multiple generations of families in major urban centers, small cities, and rural areas across America, PFLAG is committed to creating a world where diversity is celebrated and all people are respected, valued, and affirmed.

Starting June 1st through the end of the month, a special product bundle will be available for purchase on the Welly website, including the Heroic Kit and Colorwash On-the-Go Kit and a PFLAG “Pride Comes In All Colors” T-Shirt.

A percentage of proceeds, up to $10,000 will go directly to support PFLAG National and the amazing work they do to make sure that all people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer are not only valued by society, but take pride in and value themselves.

According to its website PFLAG Los Angeles is “committed to the work of ending the violence and systemic racism that daily injures Black people, Indigenous people, and People of Color. We welcome people of all ethnic groups, cultural backgrounds and nationalities, caring deeply for their dignity, equality and well-being.”

“Reaching communities of color with the PFLAG message of support, education, and advocacy has been and remains a priority of our chapter, led by our African American and Latino board members.

While supporting LGBTQ individuals and their families in communities of color is our mission, we cannot be blind to the crushing inequality that burdens them. None of us can do everything to overcome this injustice, but all of us can do something.”

Welly was founded on the belief that people wear their bumps and scrapes like badges of honor. They were founded on the principle of helping people in pursuit of a well-lived life and never having a “skin tone” bandage – that their first aid would be as bright and bold as the communities where they live, work, and play.

Welly and PFLAG National believe wellness comes from love, affirmation, and celebration of people as they are. “Let’s wear our bandages like badges of honor for a life fully loved.”
