SHANE BALL | FOUNDER
In 2014 I was at the lowest of my lows. I was heading home from college for summer break for ankle surgery (and 6 weeks of being on crutches) & my fiancé just broke up with me. I felt lost and alone. So I decided to do something about it.
One of my dreams growing up was to start my own clothing brand. I had designed a few clothing brands that I'd hope to start, but always feared that I'd fail. Because I had nothing else to lose at this point in my life (other than money), I started STAY.
The name STAY was because of my fiancé. We dated long distance for 2.5 years - she lived in England and I was living in Utah. During those times of being apart I made her CDs to listen to and those CDs would have songs that had a common word - STAY.
Crazy enough my story has a happy ending. We reconnected, dated, got re-engaged, and then married. She STAYED!
Fast forward to today, STAY continues to push the message to find the strength to accept yourself. Life is meant to be lived with purpose & connection. We will all face challenges in our journey, but nobody should go through them alone.
The word STAY is a positive reminder to continue, even during those tough times.
The triangle is a reminder that you have the power to change and that things can change for the better.
Our icon symbolizes that we are stronger together and by working together we can change the world.
Our community of Stayers strive for self-actualization, positive mental health, and staying kind to all.
A reminder that life is meant to be enjoyed. Life is meant to be filled with connections and relationships.
Remember - YOU deserve to be happy! =]
