Hello! We are the Thacker Family, and we’re glad you took the time to stop by.

At one point, I used this space to write out a nice background on our family. Today, I feel it’s most important to state our values.

 

To put it simply, we are a family who:

 

  • Enjoys time in nature
  • Knows the benefits of time spent in nature for children
  • Sees the lack of inclusion in the Kid’s Outdoor Industry
  • Knows that many kids experience under-representation, inadequate access, and various kinds of barriers when it comes to their ability to spend regular time outdoors.

 

With this company, we hope to amplify other’s voices, show family/individual diversity in the outdoors, and through the selling of shirts, raise money for non-profits who prioritize inclusion and access to nature for kids.

 

We believe Black Lives Matter. We believe LGBTQ+ people should be respected, accepted, and loved. We see Indiginous peoples as fully alive TODAY and not just in history books–we heed their wisdom and acknowledge their stolen land and appropriated culture. We believe people with disabilities should be seen fully and valued without any “overcoming” story required. We believe we should all work harder to advocate for their access to nature. We believe that white, nuclear family based voices have been too loud for too long in this industry.

 

We are a white family who is learning. We are a white family who is committed to doing better.

 

Your voice and presence is needed here. We thank you for walking this journey alongside us.

Want to get involved? click here to see our TKAW Tier of Influence.

So, here we are, sharing our hearts for kids and nature in the form of shirts and committing to doing better by ALL the diverse peoples and kids in this industry.
