LRCH: Mental Health America
Little Rock Central High School's Mental Health America Club is a student organization that focuses on mental health issues. The club focuses on social media and educational efforts to bring awareness to mental health issues. Every year they fundraise and donate to Mental Health America, a national nonprofit that promotes mental well-being for all.
Ditto continues to be one of our most popular sticker designs sold today. Thanks to the collaboration with LRCH MHA, SSS has been able to sell many copies of this sticker and make multiple rounds of donations to Mental Health America and BEAM: Black Emotional and Mental Health Collective.
"With COVID-19 this year, raising money to donate to MHA was very challenging. We wanted to collaborate with SSS because their mission allowed us to spread a positive message in a fun way through stickers, while also continuing to earn money for a meaningful cause!”
Alina Sloan is an artist and fourth-year student at New York University with an academic focus in environmental studies, sociology, and urban studies. She proudly identifies as multiracial and first-generation Chinese American. Much of her art and scholarly work explores social justice related causes, particularly climate justice.
Her most recent art exhibitions were at West Bund Art and Design Center in Shanghai and the Shanghai Makers Carnival, where her data physicalization project “Show Us the Path to Liberty,” which explores the relationships between race and income inequality in New York City neighborhoods, was featured. This year, as a recipient of the NYU Gallatin Global Fellowship in Urban Practice, she also worked with ALIGN NY and the Climate Works for All Coalition to co-author and conduct research for their report, “An Equitable Recovery: Creating 100,000 Jobs for Frontline Communities of Color.” The report, which outlines infrastructural projects that address New York City’s economic, climate, and public health crises, was recently featured in the Huffington Post, the Gotham Gazette, and AMNY. After graduation, Alina hopes to pursue a career in labor and environmental justice organizing.

Hopkins Model United Nations Team
The Hopkins Model United Nations Team (HOPMUN) is a student organization centered around public speaking and international relations located at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore, MD . Filled with students passionate about global issues and making a change, SSS partnered up with the team to design a sticker and select an organization to support a local Baltimore cause: ReBUILD Metro.
ReBUILD Metro focuses on rebuilding Baltimore's abandoned homes and buildings and converting them into new living and community spaces for Baltimore residents. ReBUILD Metro allows for Baltimore's neighborhoods to be rebuilt without having to displace locals. SSS is proud to announce that in collaboration with HOPMUN, this sticker successfully sold many copies and this past year we were able to make a $100 donation to ReBUILD Metro.
