I Choose To Continue
Through my journey with ZOX, I've realized that the impact we make on the world around us is far greater than had I ever imagined. Thousands of messages from people all around the world, sharing their stories of how our little hugs comforted their loved ones in a time of need. The impact has inspired me to do something to encourage a random act of kindness on a massive scale, every month of the year.
Sharing, in its purest form, is why Essentials now exist. They're my way of encouraging you to find someone new every month that could use a pick-me-up.
'Continue' is, without a doubt, an Essential worthy design. The semicolon has become a symbol of hope, second chances, and a story that doesn't end here. This release is near and dear to my heart as we've received hundreds of messages from people who have made an impact on a friend or family member with Straps like You're Not Alone and You Are Enough. Suicide is very real and is taking away amazing people at an alarming rate - an average of 123 people in the US alone take their own lives every day... That absolutely breaks my heart. :'(
My hope for this Essential release is that you'll find people to give them to; folks that could use a little reminder of just how special they really are. A Strap, a hug, and a few words of encouragement can make a life-changing difference. We just need to decide to start now. <3
