#HelpKiraFight

For the past few weeks, I’ve been working on our first blog post. Putting some thoughts on paper, crafting the story of our company. Letting you know all about our big plans.  However, things change and things take unexpected turns. That post will have to wait.  Right now, I don’t want to tell you about our company. I want to tell you about Kira Stanley.

Just a few months ago, Kira was a healthy, 16-year old surfer in Encinitas. Today she is fighting an inoperable brain tumor.  I first heard about her story through the ‘Help Kira Fight’ Surf Contest a couple weeks ago at Moonlight Beach. Kira’s story resonated with us and, being a lifetime ‘Encinitan’, the community response resonated as well.

So, from now until May 1st, we are donating $5 from every hat sold to help fund Kira’s treatment. We are still donating the newborn hats, this will be in addition to that.

Please help spread the word. You can follow Kira’s story through the Instagram hashtag #HelpKiraFight.  If you or anyone you know would like to contribute directly, funds can be donated via her GoFundMe page at https://www.gofundme.com/helpkirafight

 

Thanks all.
