Chicks Be Trippin™ is a travel-centered lifestyle brand, encouraging empathy and education through exploration. Our motto: Go and Learn.
Chicks Be Trippin™ (CBT) was inspired by my travels and living abroad with my daughter as a single mother, and how those experiences showed up in her classroom and assisted her educational journey. During a period when I was teaching, I discovered that many of my students had never ventured outside of their communities, and felt a pull to help change that. This phase of CBT includes a social giving component to fund programs for travel and enriching experiences for students in underserved areas.
Being awarded the FedEx Small Business Grant would allow: filing of CBT trademark application; hiring assistance to ramp up online presence + community; jump start of non-dropship merchandise, bringing them to market faster + generating revenue that will allow us to start working with students sooner; enhance website and secure domains/hosting for next 5 years; print brochures, banners/backdrops, cards and other materials for live events. All will help to expand CBT's reach exponentially.
