RVA Merch!

by | May 18, 2020 | COMMUNITY

Check out our limited-edition merch with 100% of sales going directly to support our staff. As our partners in small business are hurt by Covid-19, RVA Magazine hurts as well — and we look to our community for help. 

Welcome, friends: artists, musicians, writers, and local businesses that we have worked alongside for so many years now. Under these hard circumstances and uncertain times for our community, your RVA Magazine team is here. We will continue to uplift local businesses, provide resources for Virginians to survive, and stay on the beat for the good of our neighbors as we always have. And as we’ve said in conversations with many of you these past few weeks, it is our highest priority to help the folks in our community come out on top. It’s our job, and we’re proud to do it. 

But we need to ask for your help. RVA Magazine survives through partnerships with the small businesses we all know and love, and as the future is uncertain for so many of our local friends, it becomes so for us as well. We pride ourselves on working with restaurants, nonprofits, and small business across the River City — but as so many of our partners have been forced to shut their doors during this crisis, RVA Magazine looks to our readers to prevent us from doing the same. 

Also, donations can also be sent directly to Inkwell Ventures at [email protected]

That’s why we’re introducing RVA Mag merch to support our staff. Through our PayPal, we’ve got two limited-edition RVA Mag shirts for sale. 100% of proceeds go directly to supporting our staff, as they stay on the beat despite cutbacks to help our local businesses, artists, musicians, and more find resources to get through this. 

Merch is listed below with titles for each option. 

To purchase:

  • Send a $20 donation to our Paypal. 
  • Add a note including the design you’d like (“RVA Magazine Logo Shirt” or “Richard Perkins RVA Mag Shirt”). 
  • Include your t-shirt size in the note. 
Click here to send your PayPal donation for purchase.

Regular donations (without purchase of merch) are also welcomed in any amount, so feel free to donate directly if you prefer. We appreciate any and all support you are able to offer during this time. 

Thank you to our readers, our partners, and our friends for the love over all these years. We cannot thank you enough, and we are working as hard as we can to stay afloat during these times to keep bringing you the best of culture in Virginia… and to keep local media alive in the River City. 

Let’s get through this together!
