OWNER & FOUNDER
Hi I am Kayla the owner and founder of Happy Hoodies! I am an entrepreneur that runs a few businesses. I started Happy Hoodies during COVID -19 quarantine as a way to spread positivity to others. Mental health awareness is extremely close to my heart which is why every month we will be donating to mental health organizations.
Hi I am Alice the graphic designer for Happy Hoodies! When Kayla asked me to help her rebrand Happy Hoodies and create new merchandise I jumped at the opportunity. Mental Health is so important and is something that should be openly talked about more! I love our mission here at Happy Hoodies and have loved being a part of the team.
This month’s collaboration is a special one that focuses on breast cancer awareness month. We have spent the last few weeks reading and learning about Karen Wellington foundation, and we are so excited to choose them as the organization we give a portion of our proceeds to this month.
We chose this quote after reading this about Karen.. “Karen set an extraordinary example for all of her friends and family as someone who was courageous and victorious in overcoming obstacles with tenacity, faith, kindness and laughter, (lots of laughter) and above all else, love. Her light will shine brightly forever in the hearts of her family, friends and the thousands of women impacted by the mission of her foundation.”
Happy hoodies started as a fun side project out of Kayla’s house as a way to occupy her time and to raise money for local food banks in Minnesota during the Covid Shutdown . When the shutdown ended, she decided to rebrand and focus on a stigma that she personally struggled with and was passionate about— mental health.
