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!

The Story Behind: The Riley II Cap

Posted on August 13, 2014 by Kerisa MLP | 0 comments

Our camo print cap is named in honor of a very special superhero who loved the outdoors, the Riley II honors Riley Roman. Riley Roman, age 7, was diagnosed on September 14, 2011 as having a brain tumor. He was rushed to Boston Children's Hospital immediately following his MRI and was scheduled for his surgery on September 16, 2011. They removed part of the brain tumor that was found to be cancerous. As the cancer continued to spread Riley continued to fight on and inspire us all. A fierce fighter with the most infectious smile, Riley, will forever be in our hearts as we continue to honor his fight and send our love and support to his family.

Company Crush: Rainbow Loom

Posted on August 08, 2014 by Kerisa MLP | 0 comments

If any of you follow the MaxLove Project I'm sure you've caught on to the love that we have for looming. SuperMax's looming journey is one that full of inspiration, heart, and hope. Now you may be wondering what Rainbow Looms are, well they are a plastic toy loom that is used to weave colorful rubber bands together to create bracelets, looms, and many other creative “loom inventions”.   

In the fall of 2013 Max had three brain surgeries (five total now), which left him stuck in a hospital bed for several days. Max was gifted a rainbow loom to occupy him in bed, and he was hooked (loom pun intended!)!  Max’s school united in his love for this craft, and would have rainbow loom sales, after which they would donate their proceeds to Max. That’s when we realized how badly children wanted to stand up for their friends, and we realized that rainbow loom was the perfect platform to give them. We decided that we would unite with children and pediatric cancer organizations all over the world, and loom for love.

And then Jimmy Kimmel featured SuperMax on his show and shared with the world his dream of wanting to start a Loom Against Cancer where kids are helping kids fight cancer by looming a 100 mile long chain. On the show Jimmy Kimmel was wearing a suit made entirely of looms where he then auctioned it off and donated all the proceeds to the MaxLove Project! This went viral and everyone wanted to join in on the looming fun and help loom against cancer too, so of course we were thrilled and knew that we needed to continue the movement.

Since then Choon Ng, the founder and creator of Rainbow Loom, has become a huge supporter of SuperMax, MaxLove Project, and the Loom Against Cancer movement! Him and his family are even coming to SuperMax's Loom-A-Thon II this September and we couldn't be more excited, SuperMax can't wait to meet and hang out with Choon. To get ready for the big event and continue to help raise funds and awareness for pediatric cancer we are creating Loomonade Stands to sell these incredibly beautiful looms that people all around the world have been sending to SuperMax. And now loomers are setting up their very own Loomonade Stands and Loom-A-Thons to help kids fighting cancer!
