Donation Plan

I want to give you all a rundown of how I plan to donate 100% of the profit from the items in my shop, so you know where the money goes and when.

Right now while Yogescape is new and I'm still getting the word out I plan on donating to the chosen organizations once a year.  When that time comes I would like to announce how much, and where the funds were donated.  As Yogescape grows and more sales come in, then I may decide to donate bi-annually or quarterly.  I would like to get the money to the organizations sooner, than later so it can get to helping people.

To see what organizations I support you can look at the item description in the shop link or scroll to the bottom of my 'contact us' page here.

Yoga Leggings - 100% of the profits are donated to an organization the is the same region as the design on the pants.  For example: The profits from my New York City Yoga Leggings will be donated to an organization called New York City Relief that is based in NYC.

Yoga State Gear - Right now I just have tank tops, but I would eventually like to get the Yogi State Logo on tees, hats and coffee mugs too.  100% of the profits will be donated to an organization in the capitol of the state depicted on the item.  For example: Again with New York the profits from the New York Yogi State Gear will be donated to an organization called Interfaith Partnership For the Homeless.

Yogescape Swag - Monies from the mugs, Shirts and anything else with the Yogescape logo or definition on it will go to different projects that ultimately help the homeless epidemic.  For example I follow an Instagram account called @beauty2thestreetz where this amazing woman goes out on the weekends feeding the homeless, giving them make up and hygiene products and hair services.  Another example is in Canada I heard a news story about a woman who uses her own money to give homeless people a pedicure and a new pair of socks and shoes.  These women are amazing, and I know there are more people out there doing things like this, and I want to help them.

My Mission

For the last couple years I have been sort of studying the ends and outs of social media platforms, marketing programs and other software that is readily available for people to use to create a brand.  I've done everything from launching products all the way to self publishing a book that I was able to get into many major online retailers all from my phone and/or laptop.  The point is, is that with the internet and these very accessible programs one individual now has the capability to reach millions at their fingertips.  I have the capability to reach millions, and... I want to.  I want to make a difference somewhere in this world, make a positive change, help.

I've used some of these online mediums to express myself artistically, and ended up creating a very small business designing and selling Yoga pants.  My pants feature beautiful landscape scenes of nature and our environments.  I always joke that it is a fun way to "get into nature".  I love everything about …

Let's Help Hawaii

With the volcano erupting on the Big Island and earthquakes still happening, many people are left without homes.  I've designed a pair of leggings where for the next twelve months 100% of the profits are going to go towards the Volcano Victim Relief fund hosted by the Salvation Army.  After twelve months the profits from this design will go to a local organization that helps the homeless community on the Big Island.

How I Make My Pants

The main question I get when someone sees my pants for the first time is, "How did you make those?!?"  I thought I would answer the question here.  Now mind you, some of my methods are pretty old school and I'm self taught so all you professional graphic designers please don't make fun of me :) Here goes!

The company I use to make my pants is called  Printful Inc.  They have a very user friendly website, and a mock up generator so I can see how my design is going to look ahead of time.

So my first step is to make the design I want on my pants.  For my yoga pants specifically I have designed a template on (here is where I get old school) Windows Paint program.  It works, it is very easy to use and there is no extra fee to use it.  This is my template below, then I fill in the white part with my preferred image.

To find an image I go to a couple different websites:
