Purple Lovables announces the arrival of “Lacey Lovable” and other love-inspired designs just in time for Valentine’s Day
Purple Lovables, a new product line of clothing and whimsical gift items that raises funds for pediatric cancer patients, has announced the arrival of Lacey Lovable, a new character created just in time for Valentine’s Day.
Customers will soon be able to order leggings, face masks, t-shirts, and more with the Valentine-inspired design, which is sure to conjure up smiles as well as feelings of happiness and joy.
“Because the concept of Purple Lovables was created out of love, it made sense to create a character that honors love in all forms,” said Ray Younkin, one of the founders of Purple Lovables and a Houston-area musician and graphic designer. “Lacey is the perfect representation of what Purple Lovables is all about: kindness, generosity, and joy.”
Younkin and Anita Kruse, a Houston-area pianist and songwriter, formally launched Purple Lovables back in November – a project born out of the coronavirus pandemic.
“We wanted to channel our creativity and energy positively during a time when people’s spirits needed a lift,” said Kruse. “During such a dark time, we had a prime opportunity to send messages of love and hope through the creation of Purple Lovables.”
The product line brings hope to its customers who purchase them and pediatric cancer patients and their siblings. A portion of each product purchased goes toward Kruse’s nonprofit organization, Purple Songs Can Fly, a creative musical outlet for children at Texas Children’s Cancer and Hematology Centers. A partner with the Periwinkle Arts in Medicine program at Texas Children’s, Purple Songs Can Fly is the first-ever recording studio on a pediatric cancer floor where songwriters work with children and their siblings to write and record their songs.
“Children diagnosed with cancer provide great examples for the rest of us,” said Younkin. “They are resilient in the face of adversity, and we can all learn a lot from them, especially as we continue to face uncertain and challenging times in the world.”
Items available on PurpleLovables.com are on-demand and range in price from anywhere between $2 for an ebook and $50 for a pair of leggings.
