accept and be poster, 2012

CB2 is thrilled to support Pride Month through partnerships with The Trevor Project in the US and the LGBT Youth Line in Canada.

Beginning today, 3,500 limited edition accept and be posters will be available in stores and on cb2.com with:

• 100% of the US proceeds benefiting
The Trevor Project—the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning youth.

• and 100% of the Canada proceeds benefiting the Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transgender Youth Line—a toll-free and online service provided by youth for youth, offering non-judgmental support, information and referrals to help youth age 26 and under find the resources they need.

This year, CB2 commissioned Chicago-based artist Matthew Lew to interpret our “Accept and Be” mantra in poster format. Through his artistic vision, these three simple words were transformed into powerful graphics that command attention while radiating confidence and optimism.

A variety of layouts and color combinations were used to create 72 different designs—and in keeping with the message of “Accept and Be”, surprises are to be expected and embraced as the designs are mixed within the lot.

In each of the CB2 stores will be an “Accept and Be” wall will be available for anyone to post a story about what those words mean to them. And while visiting during the month of June, drop an entry for a chance to receive the
39.5” x 62.5” (100 x 159cm) artist-signed poster.

Like us on facebook? Fans are welcome to post their interpretation of ‘accept and be’ on our page which will enter them in a chance to receive a 12” x 16” poster. All drawings will take place June 30th*.
