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.

Thanks for visiting the blog and keep checking back in as this will be the “secret spot” where we show sneak peeks of new products and give you guys a real behind the scene look at what goes on here at Yea.Nice!

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.

Mike Smith Live At Tilly's

Every fall Tilly’s hosts a manager’s meeting in Southern California. During the day brand representatives get up on stage and present their new lines for the season, as well as marketing strategies and anything else that might possibly let the managers feel more connected to the companies.

This year we were honored to be asked to speak at the conference and saw it as a perfect chance to educate the managers on our new Beanies4Life campaign that Tilly’s is participating in.

joshspeaking

Josh Sherman, our president and co-founder, started off the speeches in a packed room of nearly 300 hundred people. Josh gave a great 10 minute speech on his past and how the company became to be what it is today. He had the room laughing often as he told stories about the hardships he went through to get to where he is today. Josh then went on to explain that getting the best team and advocates together, along with knocking out sales goals month after month just wasn’t enough.  Josh said “As a brand we weren’t satisfied with just trying to be the next big thing. We wanted to give back, and thats why we started Beanies4Life”.

Josh told the room about the campaign that they are all now a part of: “Its simple, for every beanie you sell in a store, we match that and donate one of our special made, fleece lined beanies to a homeless shelter”. The crowd erupted, and once the cheers settled down Josh introduced one of our advocates and spokes person for the program, Mike Smith.

Mike took the stage and immediately captivated the audience. He told a story about when he was in College and playing on the basketball team and he told his coach how he just wanted to help people. His coach said “Ok Mike, you want to help people, then get in my car”. His coach then drove him to a bridge where they parked and got out of the car.  Mike’s coach told him to look down. When Mike looked down he saw countless amounts of homeless people living under the bridge trying to survive the winter months. Mike’s coach said, “Mike if you want to help people, help them”.  Mike then walked down and introduced himself and asked if there was anything they needed. They said “socks, we need socks”. Mike then went back to his locker room,  took all 10 pairs of socks out of his locker, walked back down there and gave them all out!

From that day on Mike has never looked back, and since then he has been on a mission to help those in need. Mike now runs two non profits: “Skate For Change” and “The Bay”, and he is constantly touring the country speaking to schools. Mike said he gets hit up every week by brands to rep their gear and wear it to the schools when he speaks, but Mike politely turns them down. Its not because he doesn’t like the brands; he’s just not interested in selling t-shirts. Instead he’s interested in making a difference. That is why he partnered with Yea.Nice and is helping lead the charge on this Beanies4Life campaign.

Mike went on to tell the crowd about how his journey has grown and continues on at a rapid pace since that day. He then slowed it down and really told some heartfelt stories  about where he wants to see this program  go and how we can all make a difference in someone’s day, every day, no matter what you do, or where you work. He reminded us that every single person matters and every conversation is precious, so no matter how big or small just remember that everyone can contribute on some level at every moment.

By the end of it we were all welling up with tears in our eyes and goosebumps on our skin from Mike’s heartfelt stories. The emotions from everyone were very present, and the whole room was hanging onto every word he spoke. Just as we were waiting to see what was next, Mike broke down himself, sending the room into a heavy silence. The stillness of the room was eerily powerful, and after what felt like an eternity of quietness, a manager from the back yelled out “hell yeah”, and the room erupted. All three hundred people took to their feet and applauded Mike for his speech.

Josh then went on stage to help Mike finish, but the applause didn’t stop. the audience clapped for what seemed like five minutes. Mike gathered himself enough to say “thanks and see you all at the party”.

tillysentrance

After we all settled down from the amazing speech we went straight over to Tilly’s HQ where they held a huge party. We set up the booth and had countless amounts of employees who were coming over to meet Mike  and Josh, and thank them for the moving speeches. I thanked Mike myself and congratulated Josh.

All in all it was a night we will never forget. It was the first time that we got to see Mike Smith speak but hopefully not the last. We urge you all to check out Mike’s website www.mikesmithlive.com to see when he is coming to your town. We will be with Mike at El Segundo where he will be speaking Oct. 30th.

Times Square With Stalley

Yea.Nice advocate Stalley, joined us in Times Square this past weekend at the Lids store.  We spent the afternoon listening to his new album Ohio, while he met with fans, signed posters and took endless amounts of photos.

People started lining up two hours before the event began, and the first fifty people through the door all received signed albums by Stalley and beanies from us. Everyone who showed up was a true fan, and they were all hyped to get the chance to meet Stalley in person and ask him questions about his life and passion for music.  Some people drove for four hours just to get there and meet him. Stalley did not disappoint. He took the time to sign everyone’s gear and take pictures with every last person who wanted one. Thanks to everyone who showed up and a special thank you to all the employees at Lids for the help on this amazing event.
