Kobe Day

Kobe Day

Having grown up watching NBA basketball there’s a certain nostalgia that comes with Laker culture. It’s not just the games, it’s the energy, the camaraderie, it’s the players, it’s the whole lifestyle. Kobe Bryant was more than a basketball legend, he was a philanthropist who gave back to his community and made the world a better place through his foundations. He cared about people just as much as he cared about the game. Kobe Day was established before he passed to honor him after his retirement, but it has become a way for the world to continue to remember his legacy.

Today we release three Limited Release Collars. One brand new special Limited Release to honor his tenacity and his drive, the Mamba Mentality Illusion Showoff Collar. The second, a CR fan favorite through the years, the MVP Ultra Collar. And finally a Laker's Two Tone Kyon and leash set. All three seek to honor and pay homage to Kobe but also to help carry out his mission to give back. He sought to better life for those less fortunate which is something we greatly admire and seek to emulate as well. 10% of proceeds from both Limited Releases will benefit the Mamba and Mambacita Sports Foundation. 

“The Mamba and Mambacita Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating positive impact for underserved athletes and boys and girls in sports. The foundation provides funding and sports programming for underserved kids to enable participation in school and/ or league sports that enrich socio-emotional and physical development. Kobe and Gigi’s vision was to create a world where young boys and girls had equal opportunity to pursue their dreams through sports and life. The foundation honors their legacy by funding programs that support their vision.” And we are proud to help them further their mission.

Maui Strong

Maui Strong

Maui needs our help. The beautiful island of Maui, Hawaii has been ravaged by wildfires over the past week and they need all the help they can get. The historic oceanfront town of Lahaina was literally burnt to the ground, people and pets are missing as the death toll rises. The heartbreaking devastation is monumental.

Maui holds a particularly special place in hearts. It’s a place we have visited several times but most significantly it was the location of our first Crazy Rebels destination photoshoot campaign. We got to spend a week meeting and photographing the lucky island dogs who call Maui home and in doing so we made some lifelong friends as well.

The Maui Humane Society continues to take in hundreds of animals who have been burned, lost during the evacuation process and those in need of critical care due to smoke inhalation. We designed the Maui Journey Collar in an effort to raise funds for the Maui Humane Society. This collar combines the beautiful sunset colors Maui is so famous for with a pop of bight ocean blue padding. 100% of proceeds from this collar will be donated to the Maui Humane Society to help them perform lifesaving medical procedures and purchase supplies for families that have lost everything, so they can keep their animals with them. If you would like to donate directly to them, they are accepting donations a number of ways.

  1. You can donate directly on their website, due to an influx of traffic they have reported this may not be working, so there are several other ways to donate below as well.
  2. They have created a Facebook and Instagram fundraiser with a direct link to donate.
  3. You can Venmo @mauihumanesociety
  4. Or by using the link

If you would like to donate to other organizations the Hawaii Red Cross and Maui United Way would be so grateful for your help as well.

Sending Maui all the pawsitive vibes.
