How did the idea for Compassion Charms come about?
The short version: Not too long ago I had noticed that charm bracelets were a growing fashion trend. Around the same time I was trying to think of ways I could become more involved in mental health causes. The two thoughts somehow ended up merging together in my mind and Compassion Charms was born.
Why did you decide to help public schools?
Our hope is that if schools have enough resources, they will be able to provide mental health services to as many children as possible.
Why did you only make your "I Love Someone With" charms for only a few conditions? What about other forms of mental illness?
Right now we are still growing as a business, so our designs are limited. Our goal is to eventually have many more mental illnesses represented in this line.
