In honor of Pride Month, we’d like to introduce you to our newest giveback collection featuring artists Ash + Chess.
This Pride Month collection — full of beautiful, functional organizational essentials — is a part of our ongoing Heritage and Awareness Months series that has given back over $236,000 in support of social justice, education, equitable healthcare, and more. It gives back to the It Gets Better Project through the end of June 2023 and continues to support the featured artists for a full year.
The It Gets Better Project is a non-profit focused on lifting up, empowering, and connecting LGBTQ+ youth around the world.

About Ash + Chess
Ash + Chess is a New York-based stationery and gift company run by queer and trans couple Ashley Molesso (she/her) and Chess Needham (he/him). They create greeting cards, art prints, and more in bold, retro color palettes, often using their artwork to uplift the queer community.
Our collaboration with Ash + Chess features three of their designs: Let’s Grow Together, Rainbow Cactus, and Bloom and Grow across lined notebooks, 100% cotton canvas tote bags, and our best-selling LifePlanners.
Ash + Chess Designs and Inspiration
The designs in this collection illustrate how things take time to bloom into what they’re meant to be – whether that be your identity, your friendships and relationships, your career, your dreams, even your perception of the world around you. The collection as a whole represents the overall concept of growth, of the community and of oneself. It’s a reminder that we can thrive the way we need to as humans when given the chance to grow, queer or not.Ash + Chess
Let’s Grow Together
