Chris and I wanted to create something to help us give back this season and do more. Many of you may already know about The Art Of Care, our online boutique. Part of the reason we started the shop was to also have opportunities to give back. So we are happy to announce our first charitable t-shirt available for a limited time! 10% of net profit will be donated to Feeding America.
DO MORE - GIVE BACK
We want to do more as business owners, content creators, and as people. With simplifying our lives and focusing on our health, mental and physical, we wanted to create the notion of do more. We can all do more in our lives. It’s about focusing on what we can control and taking action.
Sometimes I feel limited in my ability to give back. While our shop is a small business in every way, I wanted to give back as soon as possible.
So here they are, our first ever charitable t-shirt available for a limited time only.
THE ART OF CARE
Chris and I always knew we wanted to start an online boutique of some sort, but not sure what. When we found how beneficial CBD was, we slowly started sharing it with others. This is when we discovered all the confusion about CBD. It was like the answer was thrust upon us. Do what we do best: research, curate, educate, and share.

Last year I discovered Feeding America, a nonprofit organization that is dedicated to end hunger domestically.
Hunger to me was not a domestic problem until I learned more from Feeding America. Once I learned about how many Americans go hungry, I knew I wanted to work with the organization. Learn more about Feeding America HERE.
In my mind at the time I wasn’t important enough, I couldn't donate enough money, I didn't’ have a large enough following to make a difference. Why would they want my help?
With getting myself in a better place mentally and physically, I was able to start to focused on what I can control and take action.
I love a good quality t-shirt to lounge in, style, or sleep in, so why not? Who doesn't wear a t-shirt? I love our shirts, they are comfy, well designed, and easy to wear.
We were approached by a printing company that was able to produce them as the orders come in and handle the fulfillment, which was the most challenging part because we didn’t have any money to invest in ordering a bunch of inventory in different sizes on our own. So when the opportunity arose, we knew it was meant to be.
HUNGER IN AMERICA
Because it has been on my mind to support Feeding America for the last year, I wanted to make sure at least 10% of all net profit will be donated to Feeding America.
- Many Americans are one job loss or medical crisis away from food insecurity – but some people, including children and seniors, may be at greater risk of hunger than others.
- 1 in 6 people in America face hunger
- 49 million Americans struggle to put food on the table.
- In the US, hunger isn’t caused by a lack of food, but rather the continued prevalence of poverty.
- 40% of food is thrown out in the US every year, or about $165 billion worth. All of this uneaten food could feed 25 million Americans.
WILL YOU DO MORE?
