Black Lives Matter & Toronto Pflag ($25)
Owner of MEI Designs, Carolina, has an inspiring story that comes with her products. Carolina made Mei Designs while being a mother to two children. The business got off the ground when her first child was born, when Carolina used to make things for friends. When her second child was born, she decided to make the business more commercial. At this time, she named her business Mei Designs, after her second child’s middle name. It also has a secondary meaning because Mei in Chinese means beauty. It finally became a full time endeavour when Carolina lost her job while caring for her son who was sick. That was when Carolina decided that Mei Designs was her passion as well as her job. Mei Designs has such a warm family story behind it, and it makes all the products more meaningful.

The two met at a Toronto advertising agency while working in a creative team. A strong chemistry developed, and then they gave birth merely six weeks apart, sharing another commonality: motherhood. The duo wanted to examine life’s roadblocks with their children in a realistic tone, so they created Other Life Lessons. Books from Other Life Lessons express unspoken truths and struggles we endure through growth.
Grief is one of the most difficult emotions to handle, yet it paves the road to recovery. Grief can form a grey cloud over your world, darkening everything you see. Sometimes Someone Dies will remind you that even though loss is universal, love lives on.
