IRVINE, Calif., July 12, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Take a stand and be the change with Blue Sky and Senn & Sons. Blue Sky is proud to announce a new collaboration with Senn & Sons on an inspiring planner collection for the 2021-2022 year. Kimberly Senn, founder and artist of Senn & Sons, took to the streets of downtown Minneapolis last year and painted a thought-provoking, colorful mural on a boarded-up building that read “Be the Change.” By using this (and additional) art pieces in this planner collection, both Blue Sky and Senn & Sons hope to provide a daily reminder that everyone has the power to make an impact and move forward with intention.
This collaboration, which debuted on July 4, 2021, is part of Blue Sky’s commitment to ending inequality and supporting organizations working to promote social justice. In April 2021, Blue Sky donated $10,000 to the National Urban League, whose mission is to provide economic empowerment, educational opportunities, and the guarantee of civil rights for the underserved in America. Through this donation and its new collaboration with Senn & Sons, Blue Sky aims to make a difference in communities in need throughout the country.
“A longtime partner of ours, we have always admired Kimberly Senn’s soulful designs and her deep commitment to philanthropic work. Her message in ‘Be the Change’ is no different. It’s our hope that by bringing this collection to customers, we’ll inspire others to be the change that they want to see in the world the same way Kimberly inspired Blue Sky as a company to take action and support the National Urban League. We have more work to do, but this is a start.” –Warren Vidovich, Blue Sky Co-CEO
