A Message from Our Founder & CEO

From Alika’s conception, it has always been important for me to build a mission driven company that supports the community. A few weeks ago, we sent an Alika email to our subscribers to let you know that even though our launch has been postponed due to Covid-related issues, we still want to find ways to support women and asked for your suggestions.

This weekend I spoke with a friend, a fellow entrepreneur, who expressed the difficulties her business is facing. Personally, she was denied unemployment and professionally, the operational costs of running her business are mounting.  Despite those factors, she seemed to be in good spirits.

When we got off the phone, I couldn’t stop thinking about her and how I could try to help her and  other women in similar situations. Then I remembered that team at Grits & Biscuits, an entertainment concept that celebrates the southern experience through urban music, cultural connections and nightlife, created THE KINFOLX FUND.  This fund allows individuals to nominate someone who could use a small financial lift during these troubled times.

Today I am writing because it was laid on my heart to spread the information about THE KINFOLX FUND with you.  If you know someone who could benefit from this fund, please visit the site, view the terms & conditions and make a nomination.  Or if you have additional funds and want to contribute to the fund so they can spread the wealth even further, please do that.

Also, you can expect to hear from the Alika brand or me in the future, when we identify other ways to give back or to be of service.  Again, if there are ways that you would like to see Alika offer support to women, please send an email to hello@helloalika.com and let us know.

For now, we cannot give you a physical bra to wear, but hope to assist women in ways that are figuratively as supportive.  I firmly believe that we are all in this together and together we will get through this.

Sincerely,
Ramona Dunlap
Founder & CEO, Alika
