The Story Behind: The Hope Beanie

Posted on September 24, 2014 by Kerisa MLP | 0 comments

GIVE LOVE + GET LOVE -- THE HOPE BEANIE

Natural cotton chunky knit beanie in five rich colors. For each beanie sold,  a special edition of "The SuperKid" will be given to a child fighting cancer. The remainder of the proceeds benefit MaxLove Project's integrative care initiatives, supporting SuperKids fighting cancer with therapeutic resources and MAX LOVE. The Hope beanie supports MaxLove Project's Love & Light Initiative in partnership with the Cloud B company.

The Love & Light initiative was inspired by the story of the healing turtle:

When SuperMax came home from over three weeks in the hospital after brain surgery in August 2011 he was very afraid of the dark.  The four nightlights in his room proved insufficient to soothe his fears.  Max's mom immediately ran out to purchase a Cloud B Twilight Turtle, hoping that the soothing stars would do the trick.  Max now sleeps with it every night, along with a few more Cloud b additions, and loves how he's able to turn on his “healing buddies” whenever he chooses.
The turtles (most brilliantly) come with three different colors of star projections.  Max immediately identified the green stars as "healing" stars.  A part of his fighting/healing story includes the superpower color green.  Green food, green drinks, and green energy all help a SuperKids like Max really fight the bad guys. When Max saw those green "healing" stars he was thrilled to have another way to fight.  Max held the turtle with the green stars projecting on his ceiling up to the back of his head and showed his mommy how he's able to help heal himself.  Max said, “look mommy! I’m healing!” This was such a remarkable display of empowerment, as well as the therapeutic aspects of positivity and stress relief, that Max's family decided to find a way to share these amazing toys with other SuperKids fighting cancer.  
Max’s mom wrote an email to the Cloud b company requesting support to purchase the Twilight Turtle at a discounted rate to send to children fighting cancer across the nation. The company’s CEO promptly replied that Cloud b would be happy to donate product for this worthy cause. Over a year later, MaxLove Project has partnered with Cloud b to donate and distribute approximately $100,000 worth of Twilight Turtles to SuperKids fighting cancer and related rare diseases around the world.

Company Crush: Paper Clouds Apparel

Posted on August 15, 2014 by Kerisa MLP | 0 comments

Today we want to share with you all this amazing company who sells these wonderful one-of-a-kind artworks. Paper Clouds Apparel was formed to showcase the creative minds and artistic abilities of individuals with special needs while raising funds to provide financial support for special needs schools and organizations. They achieve this goal by selling t-shirts, hats and totes featuring artwork designed by individuals with special needs. Paper Clouds Apparel also hires individuals with special needs to package all of our sensory-friendly clothing. Fifty percent of the net proceeds from the sale of all merchandise is given to the cause that they are promoting in each campaign.

For example this week they are supporting an organization called iCan House who aims to educate, support, and enhance the lives of those with social challenges and their families. This amazing facility is open to people ages 8 and up who experience challenges or difficulties with social interactions. Many of the members have been diagnosed with ADD, ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, or Asperger's but, because the facility focuses on behavior rather than a diagnosis, a diagnosis is not required for participation. iCan House is unique because they focus on what their clients “CAN” do based on their individual abilities and strengths! They believe a positive approach to changing behavior is critical. They want each person to feel successful, so they consciously position participants for success in social settings. Once clients know they can be successful and accepted, they want more which builds self esteem and confidence. Thus grows the motivation to keep learning and to experience social connections with others!

This awesome organization is solely dedicated to promoting autism acceptance through the arts.  All art for this campaign was created by artists in this organization. The MaxLove Team is especially in love with this "Dino Ballerina" created by thirteen year old Julia. She was born in China and joined her family when she was 5 and a half. Julia had a hard life in China and when she came home she received diagnoses of PDD-NOS, ADHD and Reactive Attachment Disorder. School work is challenging for Julia and she works very hard with her wonderful teachers. Julia started drawing just before her seventh birthday. She loves to draw, paint, color and work with clay. She also loves dinosaurs, everything about Harry Potter and playing the cello. Julia is excited to be working with Paper Cloud to help raise money for ICan House and to see her dancing dinosaurs on shirts and hats!
