Sweet N Swag was born a little over six years ago, but not in the way a company or brand typically begins. My very good friend unexpectedly lost her baby boy. This tragedy moved me to try and help in some small way. I wasn't sure what I could do but I needed to do something. I made over 200 bows and bow ties to help raise money to offset funeral costs. Even though we sold a lot, I was so discouraged that ALL the bows did not sell. What God did with the 'leftovers' has left me speechless. We have received more good in return than I ever could have imagined.
Sweet N Swag grew from there and continues to grow. We went from bows and bow-ties to our Mox shoe line & matching accessories. We will always remember how and why we started: To Do Good. We continue to try and do that by donating shoes to new-born intensive care units across the country, sending shoes to Africa, homeless shelters, and oncology units. Each time we give, we receive so much more.
That has never been more true than the last 18 months. In July 2017 I was diagnosed with aggressive & "incurable" brain cancer. The prognosis was not good, and I wasn’t given much hope. Luckily, I believe in miracles. The miracles began to happen almost immediately. As my family and I tried to deal with this horrific news, we immediately began to feel the love and support from our Sweet N Swag family. Letters, emails, messages, thoughts and prayers began flooding in. They truly have made a difference. Sweet N Swag has also allowed our family to completely focus on healing the tumor as my husband was able to leave his law practice and be with us full time.
I will be forever grateful for the blessing Sweet N Swag as been to our family. It has given us what we needed, when we needed it. It has given us an extended family bigger than I ever could have imagined. It has given us strength and support so that miracles can and will happen. Thank you to all who have supported us. You truly exemplify our motto: Do Good.
