UMATT3R SWAG isn't just more "stuff to buy." Every item represents our clients.
This page is for the items we cannot ourselves make. So! We chose socially aware, humanitarian-focused small, businesses from all over the USA! The shop was inspired by the fact that every young adult we serve DESERVES TO FEEL AND LOOK GREAT during their journey. They will need everything from toothbrushes to shoes. We have the clothing on lock but need partners for the rest.
Everything on this page are other independent companies we want to get swag from and are taking the opportunity to promote!
www.shopwudn.com is the site for the beautiful wooden items you'll see. You can pay them direct to plant trees! The gorgeous journals are done by https://soothi.com. Each of our young adults will be getting a Soothi to support their healing throughout their 3 years with us. Thought you might like one too! The travel items are so our clients have more than trash bags for their new swag and never need to do that again. What we don't have yet are TOOTHBRUSH AND HYGINE vendors. If you know a company that would be interested in supporting that, email the Founder at Stephen@umatt3r.com. Note: prices and sales vary and although we do our best to keep the items synced as closely as possible through a 3rd party, we cannot "direct match" their pricing in real time. To offset the cost, we have built the shipping into the pricing for these 3rd vendor options.
