Matt Ladley was up there breaking in his ankle after surgery this Spring. By the looks of this Euro carve I think Matt is well on his way to a full recovery and another banner season.

After driving through downtown Seattle it was evident  that the city has a large population of homeless people. The Union Shelter in Seattle has been opening its doors to people in need for 35 years.

We were happy to be kicking off the program, but at the same time we were a little nervous and we weren’t sure what to expect.  All of that changed the minute when we walked  in the door and met the staff of the Union Shelter. They were some of the kindest people we have ever met.

The staffs gratefulness and attitude of appreciation was mind blowing, and really changed our day for the better.

Booth B13 was where we spent our time showing our new line to buyers and friends. We’ve worked hard the last few months on our new beanies to ensure quality and durability. We have accomplished our mission of providing the industry with the world’s best feeling and looking beanies, and this was our time to showcase what we have been working on.

Here’s a sneak peek of the “Hollaclava” that will be available this fall. It is a one of a kind item that we have been working on for months to get the perfect fit and function. After countless tries we have finally found the recipe that satisfies us.

Beanies4Life

Reports says an estimated 643,067 people experience homelessness in the U.S. Death linked to freezing temperatures soared to 30% to 31,000 last winter. The homeless population is at a greatly increased risk for hypothermia and other cold related conditions. This risk is ever higher for those who suffer from mental illness or other physical illnesses. Even if they do not die from these conditions, their risk of death from future unrelated conditions is greatly increased.

Beanies are crucial to survival, with up to 50% of a person’s body heat lost through an uncovered head.

Yea.Nice has reached out and developed a polar fleece lined 100% acrylic beanie to help fight against freezing temperatures and hypothermia. For every single beanie purchased on-line Yea.Nice will donate a beanie to help give our fellow Americans a fighting chance during more than difficult times. This ONE for ONE Beanies 4 Life program allows Yea.Nice to personally search out and deliver warmth and hope to the nations most troubled areas, insuring that the people and families in need can live to fight another day. The Beanies 4 Life black folded beanie has a trademark patch with the color blue, this color represents hope.
