BURST will donate $25,000 from the Expanding Floss and Face Mask proceeds to The Trevor Project, a nonprofit focused on suicide prevention in the LGBTQ+ community.
BURST Oral Care and fashion designer Christian Siriano are kicking off PRIDE Month with the launch of a limited edition box with a custom designed Expanding Floss kit and lightweight, breathable face mask to celebrate, support, and uplift LGBTQ+ communities.
BURST will be donating $25,000 from the BURST—Christian Siriano Expanding Floss and Face Mask proceeds, to The Trevor Project, a nonprofit organization founded in 1998 focused on suicide prevention efforts among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning youth.
“From family and friends to colleagues, my life has been generously enriched by the relationships and experiences I’ve had with the LGBTQ+ community. People I love have had to navigate the difficult waters of understanding who they are while facing the prospect of mistreatment and discrimination, and yet, they persevere and sparkle, and are abundant with kindness, resilience, and empathy,” shares Brittany Stewart, BURST Oral Care co-founder and president.
LGTBQ+ communities experience healthcare disparities across various areas of the industry, including access to adequate preventative care. BURST’s mission is to make high quality oral care accessible to everyone and through this partnership with Siriano, they seek to continue the fight to demand equality, including but not limited to healthcare, and the right to live free from injustice.
“Partnering with the BURST team has been an incredible experience. To work with a brand that understands and champions the adversities that the LGBTQ+ community faces is important to me and the work I put out into the world,” says Siriano. “Raising awareness around the injustices my community faces when it comes to basic human rights, such as access to affordable healthcare, is crucial and I’m excited to shine a light on these issues during PRIDE.”
