Actress and singer/songwriter, Caitlin Crosby, had the idea to start engraving old, used keys with inspirational words. The overall idea is that their message is yours for a time, but once they’ve served their purpose with you, your job is to pay it forward to inspire another. While this idea is cool on its own, the business model is what really makes The Giving Keys special.
The Giving Keys employs people experiencing homelessness, providing opportunities for the team members to move into permanent housing. They have partnered with the United Way and PATH, a reputable transitional home in LA. These valuable partners have helped The Giving Keys build their team through their in-depth screening process, ensuring that those employed were truly determined to reset the course of their lives.
In addition, The Giving Keys began a partnership with Chrysalis to help find more employees. Chrysalis is a non-profit organization dedicated to creating a pathway to self-sufficiency for homeless and low-income individuals by providing the resources and support needed to find and retain employment.
Each of these keys sold were hand stamped with love, carrying inspirational stories along with them. To check out more about The Giving Keys and get your own key, Click Here.
