My Husband Jeremiah and I have long been interested in health & wellness, he is a Chiropractor, and I, a certified Nutritional consultant and former Salon & Spa owner with 23 years in the beauty industry. While we are passionate about the health of our bodies and minds, we are also equally passionate about our environment and in protecting it and making it a healthier place for everyone to live. Obviously, if our environment is unhealthy it is more challenging for our bodies and minds to maintain optimum wellness. We have often talked about how we would like to make a difference, a really big difference, in our world and that if we could do it, we would do it in a way that allows anyone and everyone to participate and join the MOVEMENT!
This really became fun when we realized that everyone else has their own passion and that we can support ours, by helping others support theirs.
We believe in the power of doing good and that everyone, whether or not they know it consciously, or would willingly admit it ; ), wants to make a difference in some way. We believe that if someone is given the opportunity to make a difference that benefits a cause that they feel passionate about, they would do so. Especially if doing so is fun, easy, quick, affordable AND that gives them an awesomely cool gift, as a reward and reminder of their generous nature!
A few years ago, I gave Jeremiah an idea book, which he pulls out at any hour or moment of the day or night when he has an idea, an invention, or an inspiration. He has written many ideas in that book. More recently the ideas were coming from the realization that we can follow our dreams, have fun, and do what we love every day while giving back to this world, which has given us so much to be grateful for. In March 2011 he put an inspiration in the idea book that he shared with me, which sparked a conversation, and over the course of a couple of days, “Wear I Give” was born. With Jeremiah as the idea guy, and I the more visually creative counterpart, the basic idea was there and it grew and grew every time we talked and became more and more clear in our minds. It was very inspiring and exciting… and it still is!!
Our personal motto, or manifesto is “Be for things, not against.” We try to be aware and to do our best to live by that value and we want to carry that over into Wear I Give. We want to support everyone’s basic human need of knowing that they have done something that makes a difference.
Our mission at Wear I Give, is “Creating a Movement for Good”.
We feel that this is our Soul Purpose, and Wear I Give, is the culmination of realizing and living this….. together!
Won’t you join us?!
