The Garado family thought it would be a normal day while shopping at Target during the holiday season. Little did they know that their small act of kindness would brighten everyone's day. Tiktoker Isaiah Garza tested the family's kindness by asking them to buy his lunch. The family decided to share more and give Isaiah $20 extra for his needs later on.

Isaiah surprised them by buying their Target haul and give them $500 for their kindness. According to a Yahoo article, “The Garado family has been struggling the last few years. Their daughter was born with a rare brain condition and cerebral palsy.” Even though the family was struggling they still offered to help any way they could. Many people pointed out how it's in Filipinos' nature to be kind and help others.

So many people were touched by the Garados that a GoFundMe page has been set up for their daughter Sophia, “Believe in the Impossible! Sophia’s Journey.” “We are hoping that you will be able to help us for Sophia’s lifetime medication. This support will truly help her fulfill her needs and provide all the necessary procedures that she needs to take in the future."

Cosmopolitan Magazine Tap In with Saweetie in this month's issue. The "multi-hypenate entrepreneur" has been at the top of Billboard Charts cracking the Top 20 on the Hot 100. She talks about grinding during her educational journey but also going through PTSD early in her career from some of the hate she received. She talks about the importance of being comfortable in your own skin and not having anyone dim your light.

Saweetie always felt underestimated as a woman of color. She's worked on owning who she is since her time at USC. "Yes, she’s read the tweets...about pretty privilege, about the ways someone like her can use their looks as unearned currency". Her response to that is the debut album, Pretty B*tch Music where she can take back the time she was underestimated. Set to release this spring, the album is a chance to prove the haters wrong.

“I’m really grateful for my start because the mistakes, the struggle, the grind—it allows me to appreciate the rewards that come now... I know what it feels like to sleep in motels, to drive and do promo, to be stressed out.”

Saweetie on Working hard

Besides being a rapper and content creator on the rise, Ate Icy's keeping busy. The feature says she's working on merch, more content, a jewelry line, a makeup collaboration with Morphe, and a PrettyLittleThing capsule collection. She also looks to spread the wealth through her nonprofit, The Icy Baby Foundation. The nonprofit started with her grandmother assists those in need like single-mothers, low-income communities, education efforts, and people living with autism.

This partnership between RHUDE fashion and automative manufacturer McLaren will showcase McLaren's Formula 1 history through Rhude's luxurious designs. Rhuigi Villaseñor "sets to produce exclusive capsule collections launching throughout the 2021 Formula 1 season," according to McLaren's announcement. The collection will convey the style and energy of racing while paying homage to Bruce McLaren.

“My team and I at R H U D E couldn’t be more excited about this collaboration with McLaren — it’s a dream project."

Rhuigi Villaseñor

RHUDE founded in 2015, mixes luxury and streetwear elements into ready-to-wear style. He calls this a dream project as he gets to blend sport and fashion into his designs. The fashion brand continues to grow a global fanbase on its own, but it's only upward with this collab. Pulling inspiration from paddock fashion and Formula 1 legends, we expect Villaseñor to redefine "track suit" style.

We will see a preview of selected pieces from the capsule collection during Paris Fashion Week. "The official launch of the RHUDE x McLaren collection is set for Summer 2021 with an exclusive fan digital preview to be announced." The RHUDE Fall and Winter 2021 collection, Storms Never Last is the first sneak peak of the collab and other looks.

“There is no finish line,” meaning, one can always improve, evolve, and iterate.”

Bruce Mclaren

Rhude “Storms Never Last” AW21 is now live!
