First of all. The Unwritten Life is a podcast. I originally created it to generate a positive message. To give people inspiration. I wanted to interview people that had turned whatever their passion was, into a career. It has turned into just interviewing people about their passion, regardless of it becoming a career. Once I allowed that change to happen, it turned into something completely different. It still carries an inspiring message. However. It can become quite personal, and at times, serious. More than creating a “happy” feeling, it can also create awareness. One of my most surprising interviews was with a very close friend of mine. She’s a Native American woman. When I interview someone, I open with the simple question “What is your greatest passion in life?”. I had initially thought we were going to talk about Native American culture in modern day America.

Kaitlyn Kirby | Business Owner & Creative

My top priority in creating MNRCH was sourcing from vendors I trust, with missions I believe in. I chose to screen print my t-shirt designs at a small shop in East Texas that has had a significant drop in business since the pandemic hit. The jewelry I have sourced is all handmade in the US – by women-led, small-batch companies. In addition to that, 10% of the sales of tee #1 from my collection will be going to a childhood cancer charity, called MIB agents, thats very close to my heart. MIB Agents is a leading pediatric osteosarcoma nonprofit dedicated to Making It Better for their community of patients, caregivers, doctors, and researchers with the goal of less toxic, more effective treatments and a cure for this aggressive bone cancer. MNRCH has been the perfect way to combine the things I really care about: sustainability, women empowerment, supporting small businesses, and cancer research. Read more>>
