Brooklyn Artists Design Guitar Strap To Be Given Away Free to Those Who Donate to Support Black Lives Matter Causes

This is a critically important time for our nation and the world. We are heartbroken, angry, and hurt over the injustices and prejudices towards the black community.

“This affects every human being, regardless of race, and we have a responsibility to ourselves and others to be better,” said Crystal Morris, Gator Founder and CEO. “Gator is committed to being part of the change. We do not want to sit on the sidelines as observers. We want to use our voice to spark conversations that lead to change. We all have a choice. Let’s choose to rise together.”

With this mission, Gator partnered with artists, Beatriz and Bianca Williams, to create a unique strap that will be given away with donations to organizations leading the charge. The goal is to raise money and awareness for these organizations’ missions and create a strap as a conversation piece for musicians to wear and drive dialogue with.

Starting today, for every donation over $25 that is made to NAACP Legal and Defense Fund, Center for Economic Inclusion, ACLU, Equal Justice Initiative or Color of Change, Gator will give a free, special-edition Levy’s guitar strap.

“The design of the strap represents our nation and the values we should live by – justice, respect, kindness, peace, unity, equality, and love for all, no matter the color of your skin.” said artists Beatriz and Bianca Williams. “It provides an abstract view of a deconstructed flag, demonstrating how our nation is pulled apart by racism. The inspirational words on the back highlight the values and actions that will bring our nation together in solidarity and strength.”

How to be a part of the change and receive your free strap – 2 simple steps:

1. Donate to NAACP Legal and Defense Fund, Center for Economic Inclusion, ACLU, Equal Justice Initiative or Color of Change
2. Complete short order form with contact details and donation receipt at https://www.levysleathers.com/unity-strap/

Afterwards, Gator will ship your special-edition Levy’s strap to you for free.

TRAILBLAZING ROCKSTAR AND GUITAR SHREDDER NITA STRAUSS AND LEVY’S TEAM UP ON A SIGNATURE GUITAR STRAP

At 2020 Winter NAMM in Anaheim, CA, Nita Strauss, famed musician and touring guitarist for Alice Cooper, previewed her first signature strap with Levy’s Leathers. The collaboration between the legendary strap brand and one of the most celebrated female musicians in the world led to a one-of-a-kind piece of rock-and-roll merchandise poised for global success.

Strauss created the design to complement the colors of her signature ‘Jiva10’ Ibanez guitar that launched in 2018. The black and gold Baroque design (pictured right) prominently features her swirl icon and her signature is foil-embossed on the leather ends.

“I wanted to make a statement with this strap, and it made sense to partner with Levy’s on this project,” said Strauss. “They’ve been making and crafting straps for over 40 years. They understand an artist’s needs, and I can’t wait to release my signature strap to the world.”

“We’re so excited about the Nita Strauss signature strap,” said Jen Tabor, Levy’s Brand Director. “Nita is a music icon. She’s been a champion for guitarists around the world, is a trailblazer for female musicians, and we are honored to partner with her on this very special strap.”

The Nita Strauss signature strap by Levy’s is anticipated to hit the market in March. They will be available from authorized dealers of Levy’s.

Fans can see Strauss on Alice Cooper’s tour, kicking off Feb. 8,
