The Mission: In spring of 2020, like many others, I became unemployed due to the Covid-19 health crisis. During those early days, I traded worry in exchange for hope. Applying my personal sewing skills towards learning the complex craft of sewing high quality masks, I have since expanded the brand by launching a new line of products called, "Cali-Bags".
Philanthropy: For each mask sold, I donated 10% of the funds to a group near and dear to my heart; the Switchfoot BRO-AM Foundation. This organization provides grants to nonprofit organizations that provide services to homeless, at-risk and disadvantaged youth, with a special focus on programs related to music, art and surfing. Through the sale of "Cali-Bags", I am now able to donate, one-for-one, a beautiful bag to a student at A Step Beyond.
