John Ballay, the CEO of Knot Standard, Melissa Mash, the Founder and CEO of Dagne Dover, and Nate Checketts, the CEO and Co-Founder of Rhone recently started an initiative called Brands x Better, a group of 27 brands that are united in an effort to raise awareness and funds for various charities that are helping the COVID-19 crisis.
