My Pocket of Sunshine is a company designed to spread awareness about mental health and bring comfort to those struggling with mental health. A portion of profits ($5 of every sweatshirt and $2 from every t-shirt) are donated to help those struggling with mental health crises. We donate to Mental Health America and the National Suicide Lifeline. We chose to donate to an organization that directly impacted people struggling who needed help. We wanted to make sure even my giving back was providing people with comfort. We primarily focus on clothing and stickers that have positive reminders. My hope is that people can find comfort in putting these positive messages out into the world even if they do not feel positive. Started by someone with her own mental health struggles, she wanted to create a place that could provide comfort in hard times, a little sunshine and warmth during the rainstorms!
Accessibility, affordability and comfort were the most important aspects when creating My Pocket of Sunshine. We wanted it to be comfortable for days when it was hard to leave bed, accessible and affordable for whoever wanted them, and we wanted them to be honest about mental health and the struggles that so many people deal with. Most of all, we wanted people to feel a little less alone and to feel comfortable even when things are scary and uncomfortable.
