Major shout out to everyone who’s been flexing fire fits from every room inside of their homes. Because of all your of posts via Twitter and Instagram, we’re adding an additional $2,500 on top of our $20,000 donation. Not only that, but the $2,500 generated from your donations also allows Feeding America to supply over 18,000 meals! 

But the best news of all is that we’re just getting started!

We’ve been so impressed with your ability to #FlexFromHome that we are extending the campaign up until April 3, 2020. So keep those fits coming, continue to self-quarantine, and help support your local community one fit pic at a time.

For some of us, working from home can be inconvenient, isolating, and frustrating but we believe that it’s a small price to pay to ensure the safety of our communities. This changing reality can also present an additional problem: hunger. Whether students are missing meals from closed schools, or parents are facing more limited incomes, there are people who need our help to get fed. So to lift up those most impacted by COVID-19, we’re launching the #FlexFromHome Challenge.

Take a quick break from your home office, dress to impress, and help support your community.

To start, StockX is announcing a donation of $20,000 to Feeding America’s COVID-19 Response Fund. This specific response fund is designed to help food banks across the country secure resources they need to efficiently serve the most vulnerable members of the community. But we don’t want to stop there, and we need your help. For every tweet or IG Story of your #FlexFromHome outfit that we see through Friday March 20, 2020 we’ll donate an additional dollar to the COVID-19 Response Fund, up to $10,000 for a total donation of $30,000. All you have to do is use the hashtag #FlexFromHome and make sure to tag StockX so we can count ‘em up. To make an even bigger impact, tag your friends, celebrities, or athletes to see what they’re rocking at home while practicing social distancing and challenge them to join in.

Feeding America can make 10 meals out of every dollar donated, so every post can have a major impact.

If getting fits off at home or online isn’t your thing, you can still make an impact by donating to the fund here. And while you’re at it, we hope you feel inspired to make donations to a local food bank, or other foundations that are helping, as well as supporting small businesses through carry-out orders, purchasing gift certificates for later use, giving donations, and offering extra tips. It’s time to set the example for how we can all remain active in our communities even while we #FlexFromHome.

If you want to flex but you’re a part of essential teams keeping the world running during this critical moment, you can still participate. Show us what you got from the front lines by using the hashtag #FrontLineFlex. All flexes are welcome here.

Whether you’re self-quarantining, exercising social distancing, or keeping essential services running, let your fits fly and inspire others to do the same by giving us your best.

Stay safe, stay healthy, and #FlexFromHome. We’ll see you on the ‘gram.
