Thanks for flipping over the vinyl to check out our lesser-known recordings. We put these out over the years as a kind of holiday gift from Thread, each campaign generating proceeds we donated to nonprofits doing amazing work in our communities. But let’s be honest, the real reason we laid down these tracks was to make ourselves laugh. With any luck, they do the same for you.
The Thread Historical Society filled this time capsule with mementos in order to commemorate a year that future generations will squint at and go, “Yikes.” Proceeds benefited Black United Fund of Oregon, which offers financial support and life-changing programs to underserved BIPOC communities in Oregon.
The actual buying and giving of these “gifts” found in Thread offices was not advised, or possible. But for every product page you visited, Thread donated $1 to Write Around Portland, an organization dedicated to changing lives through the power of writing.
