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 she ever knew she would launch the brand because she knew nurses needed a community and support.
Since our first product launch two years ago, Purpose People has been the place where nurses come to feel seen and heard in the highs and lows of their careers. The brand has shipped thousands of orders, created free community resources and raised thousands of dollars that have been donated to several causes. Our initiative to provide care packages to COVID nurses got national media attention and was featured on Good Morning America.

HOW IT'S GOING
We are still on a mission to support nurses in the biggest way possible. We're not only dreaming up the next tee design or sharing inspiration that nurses need, but searching for the cause in need in an effort to give back.
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.
To start 2022, we've created care packages to remind nurses they are still seen and appreciated as they continue to navigate constant changes and challenges. We donated our profits, raised money from the public, and collaborated with several brands to create care packages that were mailed to nursing units all over the country and hand delivered locally.
This initiative came to a close on 4/16 as we start to plan our next give back, we need your help!
Have an idea for our next giveback? Let us know and let's see if we can make it happen.
