Blessings Friends and Family,
Run the World turned 7 years old this year. To celebrate this milestone, we are taking a forward step as a company and we’d love the support of our Run the World Tribe. In the effort to become a more self-sustainable business, our next move is to purchase our own clothing printing machine.
This would give our company full control over both the creative and production side of our business. Enabling our company to produce more products for our community of supporters, the Run the World Tribe, and expand our ability to impact more people.
We first want to thank you for your unwavering support, over the past 7 years.
Run The World is rooted in the Africa principle of Ubuntu, “I am, because We Are”. It literally takes a village to reach your potential. We were just a sprouting seed not too long ago but now that we are deeply rooted. And the skys the limit for our company, because each and every one of our Run the World Tribe members has added the right amount of sun and water to help us grow to where we are today.
RTW is not just a clothing and lifestyle brand; it’s a quest to reach and uplift our community. It all started when RTW’s founders, Victor Martin Sandifer, Jr. (please say the Jr.) and Demont Oliver met in 1998 in deep East Oakland.
Together, we survived the K-12 system in Oakland, and defied all odds, when we both graduated college.
Shortly after, Run The World was born, out of our desire to keep Black History alive and celebrate our people, through live events, clothing, and media.

What a journey we have been on together, with our Run the World Tribe ...And we’re not done yet.
