Where it Started
After working as a nurse for several years and seeing first hand how many exhausted nurses struggled to be fulfilled in their careers, Eva started to explore why. She secured the LLC for Purpose People in June of 2019 before the brand existed because she knew nurses needed a community and support. The brand truly started in October 2019 with six mugs and a dream to help nurses feel seen and appreicated.
How It's Going
Since our inception three years ago, Purpose People has grown into a six figure business shipping thousands of orders and giving back to nurses all over the country through our giveback efforts. With a community of over five thousand followers on Instagram, Purpose People has been featured on KTLA News, Scrubs Magazine, Good Morning America and other local news outlets for our efforts.

We Love our Partners
Meet our CEO + Founder, Eva
She started the whole thing! Eva is still a working nurse who loves finding new coffee shops, exploring and creating community. Oh, and the beach is her happy place.
Meet our Shop Manager, Alec
Alec is the master of all things product. He is Eva's husband and the Type B to her Type A. Alec loves soccer, cold brew and creepin' on the newest breweries.
We like to call our approach to generosity "cyclical giving". We give in seasons to different areas, as the current need is always changing. Our goal is to adapt and show support where the greatest need is.
In October '21, we created our Live Your Breast Life Collection and are donated a portion of the proceeds to breastcancer.org.
In spring of 2022, we created and donated care packages to nursing units across the country to show them how appreciated they are.
Our last giveback was in support of Merlin's KIDS. On July 24, we walked to raise money and support Lacey (a nurse in our community)'s son Zayn in getting a service dog and through our custom shirts, walk, and community donations we raised almost $4,000 for the cause.
We're brainstorming for our next Giveback!
