Samuel Wang of Steep LA shared more information about the happening in an Instagram post, as well as an urgent and heartfelt message around the community coming together for this important fundraiser.
"When Lydia and I opened Steep, our mission was simple — to share the love we have for our culture through tea. We have been extremely blessed to have so much support from the the diverse LA community."
"As hate crimes against Asians continue to surface everyday, we want to help to bring more attention to this issue and help raise money within our power for the cause. More than ever, we need your support, the same way you all have supported us, we ask you to join us to #stopasianhate."
ROW DTLA, which is just a short drive from Chinatown, will also be holding several charity sales in the days ahead, all to help Stop AAPI Hate.
