Hey there! I'm Mikayla and the owner of Mayeli Jelli. I’m a single mama of one, Mayeli, and have spent years dreaming of owning my own business. In fall of 2019, I decided to take the plunge and honestly didn’t think much about the direction that I wanted to go with my brand, I just knew that I didn’t want to have just another cutesy shop that creates items for the sake of being trendy.
The following spring, I did a lot of soul searching to re-evaluate this brand's mission, and then it hit me. Foster care has been on my heart for such a long time and I had been putting it off for so long, not realizing that I could still support and make an impact, even if I wasn’t directly fostering. This is when I shifted the brand from being solely about positive affirmations to supporting youth in foster care by designing graphic tees with affirming messages.
Our Mission: Each quarter, we will be teaming up with our Organization of the Quarter to donate a portion of sales to support their cause amongst the foster care community!
