fostering connections, celebrating diversity and LIFTING communities through our products, services & initiatives...that's the mission.
create + collab
LIVE. EXPRESS. UPLIFT. isn't just our tagline, it's our mantra and lifestyle. The Stay Lifted team is passionate about creative expression, empowering women, and celebrating diversity. These core values along with a commitment to exceptional quality, consideration for the sustainability of our planet and prioritizing acts of service are consistent across all Stay Lifted brands.
We represent the notion that each moment is a memory rich in detail and character and that life is too abundant to compromise the delightful ride with digital nods, generic messaging or predictable imagery. Our goal is to provide fashionable yet timeless products that exemplify these philosophies, create smiles and give just the right LIFT to any mood, event, space or occasion. Having said that, we LOVE to create. With roots in illustration, fashion and business + marketing, Stay Lifted has been fortunate in partnering with like-minded brands, organizations and artists to yield successful products, campaigns and events. For info on collaborations & product development, sponsorships, wholesale programs, custom artwork, digital design and other partnerships, please contact our project coordinator, Tiffany Gray at .
“How can you win? How can you win? How can you win?
You can't win...the game is fixed.”
BLM.We are a lifestyle company based in Southern California. Our team represents various backgrounds and ethnicities. I believe that what we do and make fosters connection and brings joy to people and I consider that to be a noble endeavor. In addition to creating products that feature people of color and working diligently to make them widely available, as a Black Woman entrepreneur, it is impossible for me to lead Stay Lifted without acknowledging that we are a part of communities that are underserved and without taking steps to support causes and organizations that can impact change for good.
We are experiencing a shift in this country. As we navigate the Covid-19 pandemic, our communities are continually impacted by senseless violence and systemic racism...all of which are connected to equality in education, career opportunities, economic resources, healthcare, mental and physical wellness, wealth gaps, esteem, fair representation, accessibility to voting and so much more. We are heartbroken, angry, frustrated, exhausted, marching, voting, fighting, protesting, volunteering and in mourning. The seemingly never-ending racial injustices that include the recent shooting deaths of Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, George Floyd and Rayshard Brooks (and too many others) have made it clear that we must intentionally and actively work toward the end of racial injustice, not just personally but also as a business...and as the company leader, I will do my best to guide us in this endeavor.
changing the game...

activism + volunteerism
Efforts to LIFT others is a part of our company DNA. Volunteering our time and resources within our communities and to impact change is woven into our operational workflow and schedules in a variety of ways from Voter Phone Banking Wednesdays to Mask Making Mondays. Sitting on the sidelines is not an option.
We feel extremely fortunate to be celebrating our 10 year anniversary in May 2021 but like so many small businesses, we have been heavily impacted by the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic. We are truly grateful for your continued support.

To LIFT communities. In line with our core values and company mission, the goal of the PPE Project is to ensure that those who care for us are cared for and that quality personal protective equipment is readily available to anyone who needs it without bureaucracy or politics.
