As a company deeply rooted in our hometown of Chicago, at Braid It!, we are passionate about supporting initiatives that aim to make our city a safer and more peaceful place for everyone. That's why when we were presented with the opportunity to collaborate with the organization Strides for Peace in their recent Run Against Gun Violence, we knew we had to jump in and lend a helping hand.

In a recent video, we detailed how we were able to provide support:

'We helped them out by creating braid prompts to the question, why is peace in Chicago important to you? We collected responses from participants so that we could capture the authentic perspective of Chicagoans concerned about violence in their city to help use in the marketing for this organization and grow it through content marketing.'

We are committed to giving back to our community and applaud the efforts of Strides for Peace in working towards a safer, more peaceful Chicago for all.
