Ryan’s project was born in 2021. A dear friend of mine came to me with an issue that I had never even considered before. Her child had come out, and wanted to change their name as a part of that. She was completely there to support, and asked if there was any way I could cover or change the name on her child’s backpack. I happily agreed, but I didn’t want it to stop there.
So after talking to Ryan and their mom, we decided to launch Ryan’s project. Through this, we will offer embroidery and other services for free to any child or adult who is going through a name change as part of a transition or coming out. They can send in any items to us, and we will do our best to cover or replace the names to their new desired name at no cost. All services, including shipping, will be offered at no cost.
I am so incredibly excited about this project, and I hope that it brings some kindness and understanding to those who may not always experience that. Thank you Ryan, for showing us a need in the world that we wouldn’t have otherwise known about.
If you qualify to be a part of Ryan's Project and need to send in items, please contact us so that we can work on helping you.
