A Message from Joyce Tang:
Fridaze has been involved with HERS for 3 years on a quarterly basis. My staff has been working with the HERS Team to ship brand new, tailored silk and linen apparel for the clients of all 3 HERS locations in the Bay Area. Our original intentions were to hopefully brighten up the day of the woman warriors who are struggling with breast cancer in a small way. However, I met the HERS staff for the first time at their Open House as a vendor sponsor in October 2019, and the responses I received from these HERS angels were overwhelming. Every single one of HERS staff including the need providers and directors of programs came up to me to share their stories and photos of how our clothing has impacted their clients' journeys. When a woman is fighting for her life, they said, the last thing they could think of is luxury items for themselves. However, what we provided was more than clothing, because each of them walked out with our clothing feeling more dignified, courageous, and hopeful. We help to put respect and fight back into these women warriors simply by dressing them for the struggle. They may be in for the fight for their lives, but we can empower them by helping each look beautiful and confident while doing it. This has been a most humbling and important lesson for me. We are truly blessed to have these HERS angels in our community.

A Message from Joyce Tang:
As a company, my Fridaze
Team and I have been regularly involved with giving back to this very special and important local organization in the Bay Area for more than a decade. As a family, working with my son Nathan at LIFE ElderCare
's companionship program has brought this work to a full circle. Our intentions here are not to be recognized or to decorate our egos, but to help and to do what we think is right. More than financial resources and clothing, we can give back to our community in service, commitment, and presence. Together on a weekly basis, Nathan and I learn the meaning of our interconnectedness with the community, starting with doing yard work and honoring very old photographs with humility. Sometimes it's not easy for me and my teenage boy to connect with an 85-year-old senior who has a vastly different background from us, but we share our stories and the differences melt away. The love and friendships we received back are priceless. Ultimately, this learning process has been filled with joy and gratitude; and it has inspired us to show up for the community and step up on the standard of Giving and Receiving!
