Community Giveback

God has blessed us with the opportunity, through the Bay Life platform, to make a positive impact within our community by partnering with carefully selected non-profit organizations, participating in environmental restoration initiatives and giving back to our earth and the locals who inhabit it.  Below are some of the ways in which your purchase helps us give back to our local community.  We are always open to having a conversation about how we can continue to give back.  If you run a non-profit organization and are interested in partnering with Bay Life, please email us at and we will reach out to discuss further.

Not My Child | Fighting the Heroin & Opioid Epidemic

We do this by providing assistance to individuals recovering, supporting mental health, and implementing and promoting opioid awareness and prevention campaigns. 
We also provide assistance to families who have lost a loved one due to opioids.

Baltimore Homeless Hoodie & Blanket Drive

Bay Life Apparel Homeless Donation

You'll notice Bay Life Apparel has a Bay Life for Life Guarantee.  Whenever a product is returned to us or whenever we ruin a garment at the shop, we distribute them to the homeless around the holidays times, along with fresh, clean blankets.  We didn't simply drop them off at a shelter and call it a night, no, we personally drove around the city looking for homeless camps and individuals to distribute these items to.  We believe whole heartedly in karma and are in a great position to put as much positive karma into the universe as possible.
