The Pinky Pledge Initiative
Inspired by our own mentors, the Duet Pinky Ring was created to be a physical symbol of the support around you and your pinky promise to pay it forward.

It was clear that Darby was a performer at heart – she brought out her favorite Miranda Sings impressions a few minutes into the conversation, and would continue to periodically interject them throughout the visit.
