Back to School

Sandy Hook Promise needed to recapture America's attention as the 2019-20 school year began. So we did what any brand that provides school essentials would do: we launched our own back-to-school campaign.

But most importantly, we supported Sandy Hook Promise's mission to empower each of us to stop a shooting before it can happen.
