On September 7th 2017, a deadly earthquake devastated Oaxaca, Mexico leaving thousands of people without homes. Our friends at Por Oaxaca, have made it their mission to provide provisional housing to the indigenous communities affected by the quake. Recently Por Oaxaca’s founders, our very own DBN brand ambassador Elizabeth Lopez and her family, took a few friends to Asuncion Ixtaltepec to meet the families who are receiving provisional housing thanks to their efforts. We made a small contribution to the trip through our Custom Apparel program. The Por Oaxaca team donned custom Por Oaxaca/ dude. be nice apparel as they toured the area and listened to the stories of those affected in the region.
While progress is being made, the work needed to repair Oaxaca is not complete. If you would like to donate and support their efforts visit their homepage and find out how you can make a difference Por Oaxaca.
