MEAS Active started as a brand on a mission:
MEAS is a brand that was founded to empower and encourage women through their health and wellness journey, while giving back a portion of our profits to non-profit organizations with similar goals.
As a brand, we have made a commitment to stand in solidarity and unity to fight systematic racism. We are currently donating a portion of every purchase to various non-profit organizations that are combating racial injustice.
Organizations we are donating to:
We are a young brand on a mission to learn, listen, support, act, engage and contribute to real change. Please feel free to reach out with any questions or comments. We are here to connect and support.
A message from our founder:
Dear MEAS Family,
First, I want to acknowledge George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and the many other black lives that were unnecessarily lost due to racist violence and an inequitable justice system.
The devastating events of the past few weeks have left me shaken to my core and I have never felt more uncomfortable in my own skin. I have taken this week to listen, learn, un-learn, research and educate myself, which brings me to this...This is NOT about me and my discomfort, this is not about you, this is about the social injustices against the black community, along with the ongoing systemic racism occurring in America and it is time for us as a country to get comfortable with being uncomfortable.
As runners, athletes and women, one of the biggest lessons we have to implement to succeed, is getting comfortable with being uncomfortable. Through my experience as a runner, runners hit the wall at mile 22, we persist and we break through. Success does not come from our comfort zone, great things happen when we are pushing our limits and stepping out side of our norm.
MEAS Active is not a brand that was started with a new evolutionary product, unprecedented technology or even a breakthrough idea. MEAS is a brand that was started on a mission; Empower & encourage all women through their own health & wellness journey, while giving back to organizations committed to do the same.
As the founder of MEAS, now more than ever, I believe in our mission to continue to empower, encourage and give back to organizations doing the same, however I want to make a promise to you:
MEAS promises to stand in solidarity to fight against systemic racism. As an individual and business owner, I will continue to listen, learn, research, act, speak up and speak out. As a small business, we promise to continue to make as big of an impact as we can through our voice, actions and donations.
With every purchase, a portion of our profits is donated to the The Loveland Fund. We chose this organization as it was founded by Rachel Cargle to provide therapy support for Black Women and Girls nationally. "Black women and girls deserve access to healing, and that healing will impact generations."-Rachel Cargle.
The heart of MEAS is to empower & encourage others. We look forward to working together with you, our community, our partners, our friends to learn more, to do more, to give more, and to find a path to a more equitable future.
With Solidarity & Unity,
MEAS Active Founder
