On a mission to give back and build community, the Dazed x Black Santa Company Toy Drive aims to make a difference for the local community in need this holiday season with a toy donation to one of The Black Santa Company charitable partners the Think Watts Foundation. In addition to the toys, Dazed is making a donation to support the Think Watts Foundation to support their community grassroots activations.
“Like Dazed, we’re on a mission to spark a movement and cultural change. One which champions our community, vivid imagination, positivity, and year-round giving.” said Baron Davis, founder of The Black Santa Company. “I created The Black Santa Company to help build the future we want to see for the next generations to come. I’m thrilled to be partnering with the likemind entrepreneurs at Dazed to bring this whimsical event to life. A celebration of diversity, the joy of giving and the magic of good.”
Thrillist just named Dazed as one of the best dispensaries in NYC, and it’s not hard to see why. Since their grand opening just a month ago, Dazed has been making their mark on the city in more ways than one. This festive event is an extension of the community focused brand, whose toy drive tradition began in the Holyoke Massachusetts location and is ramping up to make a much larger impact this year.
“The People’s Santa” has been breaking barriers by creating a magical character reflective of the culture and how this unexpected event is looking to make a big difference.
