Created in honor of a late friend who touched the lives of many, AGMES is a tribute to the power of kindness. Our friend’s mission was simple: to leave the world better than he found it. His passion is our commitment, one that guides everything we do. Beyond creating distinctive and enduring pieces, we strive to support those working to promote and protect human rights, fight racism, end hunger, and seek solutions to the environmental crisis.
Speaking up is essential, but it is not enough. In March 2020, as the coronavirus spread around the globe, we began pledging a percentage of our sales to carefully selected nonprofit organizations, starting with No Kid Hungry. A second partnership, with the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, came amid protests following the killing of George Floyd in police custody. The September 1st debut of the Wishbone collection marks the next phase of our ongoing philanthropic initiative, which is now a permanent facet of AGMES.
From September 1st through December 2020, 5% of the purchase price of all online sales of the Wishbone collection will be donated to the ACLU. This century-old nonprofit organization is a guardian of liberty, working in courts, legislatures, and communities to defend and preserve individual rights and liberties, with a focus on fighting discrimination, improving free speech and voter rights, and supporting religious freedoms. We are proud to help the ACLU advance its extensive litigation, communications, and public education programs.
