Mother's Day is just a few short days away; you're welcome if this was your reminder.
BLK is a dating app for Black singles, and in honor of Mothers' Day, the app has partnered with up-and-coming Black artists to celebrate single mothers in a series of on-trend, beautifully illustrated, and witty digital cards. The artists include names such as Carmelle Kendall, Princess Karibo, and Thaddeus Coates. The colors used throughout the cards are vibrant and uplifting, and the clever copy is sure to put a smile on any mom's face—the perfect setup for a card.
Now, what are you waiting for? Celebrate your mom, pronto!
It’s the time of the year where we put the most important women in our lives on a much-deserved pedestal: Mother’s Day! BLK, the leading dating app for Black singles with over 5 million downloads to-date, is partnering with outstanding up-and-coming artists to celebrate Black single mothers in a series of digital cards.
The cards are available now through Mother’s Day, and everyone can share the cards via text message, email, or across Facebook and Instagram.
Additionally, BLK is featuring single moms who use the app on the brand’s Instagram throughout the month of May, captioned with empowering and uplifting affirmations for these incredible women. BLK aims to help shed the misconceptions of being a single mom, while also giving the moms a nice profile boost in public to increase their chances of finding “the one”. Like Beyoncé said, women are “strong enough to raise them children, then get back to business” so the least we can do is give them the shine they deserve!
Often at the front lines of societal progress, education/innovation, and the household Black women are owed some of the highest praise – which is why BLK and the artists are showing appreciation and highlight the Black mother’s importance in our community. The featured artists span from the US East Coast as far as Nigeria – uniting the Black community through art to celebrate the important maternal figures in our lives:
Princess Kay, a Nigerian children’s book illustrator
Thaddeus Coates, model, illustrator, and animator who’s worked with Nike, Instagram, and even Ivy Park
Carmelle Kendall, an Atlanta-based art director and designer, and co-creator of paper company Neighborly
