As part of our mission to give back to the urban community, its people, causes and concerns, effective 5/20/2016, Robben & Gorée will make a donation of at least $2.00 to one of our select charities for each t-shirt purchased and 10% of net profits on all other products. You will be given the opportunity to select a charity at checkout. Charitable giving is part of the DNA of our company. Robben & Gorée was conceived in large part as a response to the needs of and the desire to serve our local urban, women and minority communities.
