As part of our 2020 commitment to community we have selected our second set of charities to support throughout the remainder of the year. Our purpose at Zyper is to highlight the power of collective voice to bring positive change - that’s why we have made it a goal to support real, local communities and causes that our fans care about. Just like the first half of the year, we will continue to donate $5 for every fan we onboard and split the donation between the two charities at the end of 2020.
After surveying thousands of fans about causes you are passionate about in your communities, we are thrilled to announce that we will be supporting AZ Mag and Crop Swap LA!

AZ Mag is a UK based publication, social space & event organiser for LGBT+ People of Color. Created by four Black queer women in a bid to address the need for spaces where LGBTQ+ Black people and people of colour could amplify their voices, share their stories and feel safe in their community.

Crop Swap LA is helping fight food injustice in Los Angeles specifically in the West Adams neighborhood. This neighborhood is low income and most people only have fast food near by at a lower price point. Volunteer run since October 2018, first under the name West Adams Crop Swap, Crop Swap LA invites gardeners across Los Angeles to bring their extra veggies, fruits, herbs, and valuable homemade items to trade whatever they wish.
Disclosure: Zyper will donate a minimum of $1000 to each charity. We'll post a fundraising update in January. If you have any questions about our charity initiative or want to submit an idea or cause for us to help support please just email firstname.lastname@example.org thank you!
