The Quill in our name stands for a lot more than you may realize... it actually represents my children. Since the day he was born, I referred to my son, Jack, as Jackbird. Once his little sister, Kate, arrived I've called her my Katbird. The quill is my symbol for them - that this company and everything I do is for those two little birds of mine.
When it comes to giving back, the Quill symbolizes our desire to always think of others and to model for our children that it's important to bring forth good in this world. In that spirit, we try to make sure that we are giving back to our community and to others throughout the world as part of the inkWELL Press® mission - to empower and to help others.
In October we change our name to PinkWELL Press in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. During the month of October, we offer an exclusive pink sewn journal designed specifically to benefit Breast Cancer Awareness. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of these books goes towards helping fund the fight to eradicate cancer.
In the past we've sold thousands of these books and look forward to helping promote BCA month again in 2017. We love being able to do our part to help the warriors who battle breast cancer.
As a former teacher, I know how hard it is to get everything you want for your classroom. This is why we make it our mission to donate Academic Year Planners to local area teachers. In August of 2016 we gave away over 1,000 planners to schools.
Our goal is to help alleviate the added financial stress teachers feel at the beginning of the year as they begin to ready their classrooms. It's my little way of giving back to my fellow teachers and showing them just how much I appreciate all the hard work that goes into helping raise our children.
