Rare Birds' Year in Review: A Journey of Inclusion, Partnership, and Expanding Horizons!
Dear Rare Birds Community,
As we stand on the cusp of a new year, we find ourselves filled with gratitude for the incredible journey we've shared with you in 2023. Join us in reflecting on the significant moments that have defined Rare Birds and have set the stage for an even more exciting future.
1. Grand Unveiling: The Rare Birds Store Launch on June 27, 2023
June 27th marked the day our vision came to life with the grand opening of the Rare Birds online store. It was not just a store; it was a sensory-friendly haven that celebrated neurodiversity. The warmth and support we received from our community were beyond anything we could have imagined.
2. Wings of Support: Our Partnership with the National Autistic Society
Our commitment to creating a positive impact extended beyond our clothing. This year, through our partnership with the National Autistic Society, we were able to contribute to their vital work, thanks to a portion of each sale donated to this very important Charity. Together, we are fostering a world that is more understanding and supportive of neurodivergent individuals.
3. Amplifying Voices: Partnering with Positive Neurodivergent Individuals
Collaborating with positive neurodivergent individuals has been a source of inspiration. Their stories, creativity, and perspectives have enriched our brand and reinforced our commitment to amplifying diverse voices within our community.
4. Celebrating Diversity: Spotlight on the Neurodivergent Black Community during Black History Month
During Black History Month, we shone a spotlight on the intersectionality of neurodivergence and Black identity. It was a month of celebration, education, and fostering a deeper understanding within our community, as we embraced and acknowledged the unique experiences of the neurodivergent Black community by sharing unique individual perspectives each week.

5. Expanding Horizons: Shipping to the United States in November and Beyond
In November, we spread our wings even further by expanding shipping to the United States. This was an exciting milestone for us, allowing us to reach and connect with more members of the Rare Birds community. Looking forward, we are thrilled to announce our plans to expand shipping locations even more in the New Year. Our goal is to make Rare Birds accessible to individuals around the globe, fostering a sense of inclusivity on an international scale.
6. A Year of Impact and Gratitude: Rare Birds' Proud Legacy
Rare Birds has become a symbol of empowerment, acceptance, and celebration of neurodiversity. We are immensely grateful for the support that has allowed us to make a positive impact in the lives of neurodivergent individuals. As a token of our appreciation, we held weekly giveaways throughout the year, rewarding our loyal followers for their unwavering support.
7. Looking Ahead: Soaring into the New Year with Hope, Excitement, and Global Reach
As we eagerly anticipate the New Year, Rare Birds is excited about the possibilities that lie ahead. We will continue creating innovative, inclusive solutions, expanding our reach, and offering more opportunities to express our gratitude to the community that makes Rare Birds soar.
