[HAS HEART] is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to utilize the mediums of art, design, and fashion to benefit, uplift, and inspire U.S. Veterans currently traveling to all 50 States.
Inspired by meeting a young Marine who was left paralyzed and voiceless from his injuries in Iraq, [HAS HEART] created the HERO[series] which pairs a wounded Veteran with an artist partner to co-create a design that shares their meaningful message with the world. Their powerful collaborative process and its final design is captured through photos and videos, manufactured into (Made in USA) consumer products, and then exhibited and sold through art exhibits and pop-up shops — ultimately serving as a tangible representation of that Veteran’s voice.
To expand the organization's reach, their creative team is currently living/working in an Airstream trailer for the next two years traveling to all 50 States to partner a Veteran with an artist in every state. Follow the meaningful nationwide journey: #50stateshasheart.
