I have known Ashley for a while now through blogging. Lets take a dip in the archives and pull out this blogger interview:) I have seen her chase her passion to make positive impact in this world and how she lives her passion day in and day out. She recently adopted two beautiful children of her own in addition to mentoring her Threads family. So happy to share her story here today in her own words and hope you will join me in supporting her worthy cause…

About Threads

This past year as The Shine Project has led me to start up a non-profit organization, The Shine Scholarship Project, my life has changed. We have blessed some really amazing high school students to help them pay for college. You can watch what we’ve accomplished and who we’ve touched here.

A few months ago I started getting antsy and realized that my journey helping these youth was just beginning. I knew I needed to create a way to provide more opportunities for them, especially after they graduate high school and are transitioning into college. That’s when the idea of Threads was born.

Threads is a cause driven business that changes the future of at risk youth. They come from various backgrounds, but all have one thing in common, they want to break the cycle. By employing them, we instill values of self reliance and hard work. They are paid fair wages for the bracelets they make, and in turn are able to pay their way through school. Many of Threads employees are first generation college students. They dream of becoming nurses, broadcasters, writers and engineers.

Your purchase will directly impact a student. Even beyond financial support, your belief in them is a symbol of hope and trust that they can achieve what for so long seemed impossible. By purchasing Threads you are wearing more than just a bracelet, you are wearing change.

Myself, my team of amazing interns, and 7 incredible student employees are proud to present to you Threads. The more bracelets we sell; the more kids we can employ; the more education we will help give to the future leaders of our country. And boy, are they going to be leaders.

Shine on.
