Since 2018, KLIIN is involved with our local high school, Polybel who welcomes autistic kids and offer pre-work training programs.
Now that KLIIN has their own office / warehouse, we're able to welcome 2 interns but we also continue to participate in in-class programs.
This year, KLIIN continues the partnership but wants to do even more. During Autism Awareness Month, we hope to spread the word about the program to as many people as possible. And with the help of our young colleagues from École Polybel, we created a Polybel-branded KLIIN, of which $2 from each sale will be donated to the school.
Moved by the idea, Polybel's faculty immediately brought the students together for a brainstorming session. Angélique created the artwork while other students composed the slogan. The project pays tribute to an early school initiative: a student-run café.
Because École Polybel is a French-speaking school, the slogan developed by the students is in French and loosely translates as “Perfectly Different. To wipe away prejudices.” Product is available in French only.
Thank you !
