World Repair Kit World Repair Kids unleashes the superhero in every child — the protectors, the fixers, the champions of good. Lily Kantor, Serena & Lily Co-Founder and CEO, created the World Repair Kit to spark a movement that fuels a bold generation of young “can-doers.” The Kit is designed to seed a kid’s imagination with facts, sprinkle on a little inspiration, and illustrate tools that work. As everyone has a role in fostering youth action for World Repair, SSS is developing partnership strategies and community activation plans to support the launch and growth of the World Repair Kids Movement. Stay tuned.

GirlUp SSS is supporting Girl Up, a campaign of the United Nations Foundation, which gives American girls the opportunity to channel their energy and compassion to raise awareness and funds that help some of the world’s hardest-to-reach adolescent girls. Girl Up helps girls help each other to become educated, healthy, safe, counted and positioned to be the next generation of leaders. Activation tools, grassroots events, and brand collaborations will help encourage Girl Up activists to give a “High Five” to girls in developing countries by donating $5 to provide girls with such basic needs as access to school supplies, clean water, life-saving health services, and safety from violence.
imgres2 Reap What You Sew Reap What You Sew, a project of artist Nicole Mackinlay Hahn, illustrates a more conscious connection between consumers and those who make our food, shelter, and clothing. SSS created a manifesto and statement of ethical purpose to frame RWYS engagement with producers and brands, providing the language to articulate Mackinlay Hahn’s vision of capturing the “poetry behind the purchase.” A perfect example is MIRROR/AFRICA, which pioneered the use of RFID tags in an interactive film installation, unveiled at Barneys NY and exhibited at the New Museum NY.

HUUUG-LOGO-1-S Huuug SSS worked with founder Leigh Cadena to conceive and launch a global campaign to lift kids up by uniting resources and unleashing tools that create happier ever afters. Huuug brings individuals and existing youth-serving charities together through immersive trips, corporate collaborations, retail pop-up stores, and novel fundraising events. Rather than reinvent the wheel or start a new non-profit, SSS helped Huuug build a sustainable platform to accelerate and maximize impact for all. This entailed full creative visioning and execution from brand identity and mission articulation to design of a global movement.
