The mission of Peach’s Neet Feet (PNF) is to provide tangible ways to be compassionate, and inspire others to engage in acts of kindness. This is accomplished by providing services that include, but are not limited to: painting and distributing personalized shoes to children experiencing hardship in the form of chronic illness, and disability; organizing and sending care packages to families with children inpatient or in hospice; providing workshops for school aged children to encourage kindness; and providing supportive art programs for children and the elderly.
About Peach’s Neet Feet
We here at Peach’s Neet Feet have built a platform of spreading joy and kindness into the lives of children and families that have experienced hardship in the form of chronic illnesses and disabilities. We saw a need to celebrate children beyond their diagnosis, to show them that they are cared for, and we did this by providing free, custom, hand-painted shoes to children fighting for their lives. Each pair of Peach’s Neet Feet is designed to complement each child’s life, interest, and courageous fight. These personalized, one of a kind gifts lift the spirits of children and their families.
However, we didn’t stop there; we looked out our own front door and saw a need to spread kindness to people from other walks of life right in our own community. We opened a community art center to provide art classes to children in a safe, and supportive environment. We began an intergenerational project called “Young at HeArt;” an art class for children and the elderly, two groups that are often marginalized, to come together. In joining young, and old we are hoping to create an active community; promote citizenship; create opportunities to meet new friends and combat social isolation; and encourage a greater understanding and respect between generations.
We also saw the need to reach the younger generation and to teach them that kindness is not just a word, but a verb. We put our heads together to create a program to bring to local school districts to present “Hustle and heArt: Kindness in Action Workshop.” We wanted to show kids that it’s not about what you don’t do that demonstrates kindness, but it is what you DO that shows compassion and empathy.
We knew that we could not do this on our own, so we decided that we needed to hustle and find others that shared the mission and vision…and that is how the Hustle Kindness® movement was born. This initiative is to inspire people to put kindness into action. We created a lifestyle brand and a platform where anyone and everyone could be involved. With every purchase of any Hustle Kindness® merchandise, proceeds are given back to the Peach’s Neet Feet mission.
