Good people are Good. To. People. Simple as that, really.
I have many layers to my story, and many things I have been through in life that have shaped me into who I am today. Don't we all? No matter what I have been through, where I have lived, or what my current life situation was, I have always wanted people to know that they matter just because they exist. My station in life has never determined how I treat others. I firmly believe every person has potential if they are given the opportunity to realize it in themselves.
I'm really excited to be a part of a company that is so driven to help me help my family, AND also gives me an opportunity to have a powerful domino effect on people's lives all over the world. There is something really beautiful about knowing the story behind where and how something was made. My favorite necklace used to be a juice orange, then waste, upcycled, and crafted into a gorgeous piece of jewelry accented with seeds and berries. I love that I can hold it in my hand and actually see nature in my jewelry. The products speak for themselves, the mission is beautiful. These are good people simply helping people... and I couldn't be more proud to be a part of it!
To date, I Thought of You has purchased over 60,000 pieces from craftspeople worldwide.
