  • Pictures of Hope

    With increasing numbers of families facing homelessness in cities across the United States, millions of children are forced to live in unstable and insecure situations. 1 in every 30 children living in the U.S. is homeless. skinnytees has taken action to help make a small difference in some of these children's lives by sponsoring Pictures of Hope in five cities in the last two years to help children realize their dreams through photography. Pictures of Hope is a non-profit organization created by Linda Solomon, with the mission to change the lives of homeless children, by allowing them to express their innermost hopes and letting them know that they are not forgotten. Children are given digital cameras as a gift and taught how to use them and capture their hopes and dreams. These images are then turned into greeting cards that can are sold and all proceeds are given back to the shelter. skinnytees has worked with shelters in Denver, Detroit, Tucson, El Paso and Los Angeles.

  • For the Love of Women

    skinnytees is a brand made by women for women. More than simply an apparel company that dresses women, skinnytees always considers a women's life, her passions and journey by creating cuts and styles she can live in. From day to day life, work or play, dressed up or down, from pre-pregnancy through to nursing, skinnytees creates styles that are for every phase of life. The woman's journey is incredibly important to us and when that journey may include the difficult diagnosis of cancer, we want to be there for these strong and beautiful women to offer the comfort and convenience that is so needed during this time. skinnytees styles have been created to fit over anything, including heavy bandages, with just enough stretch to stay in place. Finding something to wear during treatment is the last thing we want women to have to think about.
