We design and make things with love and with care, even though we will probably never meet the humans we are making things for, we know that we can put a smile on their face, a spring in their step, and warmth in their heart. We are on a mission to change the world, starting with health and wellbeing. We want to be LovedBy families around the world affected by Chronic Illness.

Because human beings are not perfect.
Because we love and care about our families.
Because the right support and guidance is not always available.

We have been building a platform to engage and delight 0-20-year olds around the world, and to promote positive behaviour.
Twenty million children and adolescents in the United States have some form of chronic illness or disability.
This is around 18% of 0-18 year olds.

About one in seven young people (15%) aged 11-15 in the UK report having been diagnosed with a long-term medical condition.
Healthcare spending reached a total of $3.2 trillion dollars in 2015, based upon recent estimates.

A nudge makes it more likely that an individual will make a particular choice, or behave in a particular way, by altering the environment so that automatic cognitive processes are triggered to favour the desired outcome.
