THE ELEPHANT INITIATIVE

Elephants are one of the most majestic and loyal creatures

in the animal kingdom. With this initiative, we want to support

and honor our out-of-work independent contractors and sole

proprietors that don't qualify for state unemployment benefits

as they may be struggling during this time. We constantly rely

on them to make us "look good" in every day life - from the

hairdressers and nail technicians to event staff (including

florists, caterers, wedding planners, and tent installers) and

more. We want to provide assistance to the behind the

scenes teams are often left behind yet are truly essential

in our lives.

NOTE: As of April 24, 2020, the State of Georgia has released Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) for individuals who are self-employed, gig workers, 1099 independent contractors, employees of churches, employees of non-profits, or those with limited work history who do not qualify for state unemployment benefits.
