We believe we’re better together.

This is Faith!

This MRG recognizes that each individual’s faith story is a critical part of who they are. We are a welcoming, respectful, and nurturing community that provides education, resources, and support to Team Members and Makers of all faiths as well as those that are unaffiliated with a specific faith.

We believe in giving back.

We’re excited to be donating a portion of the proceeds of our community-focused product collections to worthy organizations like MLT.org, Catalyst and Boys & Girls Clubs’ LGBTQ+ Initiative.
