I believe people matter. And that all too often, we forget to tell them. I never want to wonder if the people in my tribe know that I love them. So I tell them-with text messages, phone calls, hand-written cards, and gifts.
In 2004- to celebrate my third year of sobriety- I decided to give some significant folks in my life a tangible token of gratitude: a hand crafted leather necklace holding a stainless steel parachute pin- the tiny curved piece of metal that holds the main canopy inside it’s container starting the complicated sequence of opening the skydivers parachute. These friends were my very own parachute pins-my safety anchors through change, addiction, chaos, and fear. Without them, I would have crashed. And I wanted them to know how much they mattered.
The reaction to the necklace was immediate and life-changing. “You’ve got to make more of these,” someone told me. And in a moment of spirited synchronicity, I said, “why not?”
That “why not?” became Parachute Promise- a business devoted to thanking people who matter with wearable gifts that last, for life.
Here’s to freedom, love, + safe landings-
