Tell us a little about yourself.
My name is Pearl, and I’m the graphic designer at Vessi! I love spending time with my ragdoll kitten Maisie, and ripping down my neighborhood on my skateboard. I’m also really into 90s rom-coms, and always open to recommendations, so if you have any good suggestions definitely send them my way.
Tell us about your #MakeWaves project.
I’m going to be sending care packages to my family members in need. I also want to be sure I’m shopping local and small for everything to make sure I can double up on the helping.
What inspired you?
Thinking about this project, I myself didn’t know where to start! All that thinking made me realize it doesn’t have to be this huge undertaking. Simple actions are still grand gestures.
Who are you trying to impact?
People that might not know where to start themselves when giving back. I’d love for this project to be a jumping board for anyone who might want to help, but feel like they aren’t sure if they’ll make a valuable impact or not.
Why is that important to you?
I truly believe in the ripple effect and how much it can affect the world around you. We need kind people to step up right now - and self-doubt shouldn’t stop you.
What are you hoping to accomplish?
I hope that apart from giving back directly, people also learn that you don’t need to think huge when it comes to community. Your family, friends, co-workers are all your people!
