Updated: Nov 5, 2020

As November rolls around, and COVID has made 2020 a s*** show of a year, looking after our mental health has never been more important. We spoke to Made With Hope Clay Co. Founder Meghan Hope, about her COVID lockdown passion turned social enterprise raising money to support the Movember Foundation and men’s mental health.

Made with Hope Clay Co was created in honour of my dad who passed away when I was 15 from mental health… I wanted to create a business that is supporting a foundation close to my heart but something I could do all year round.” Meghan tells The Social Catalog

Personally, Meghan has contributed to over $8500 raised in the past 3 years for the Movember Foundation, a leading charity changing the face of men’s health by tackling issues like prostate, testicular cancer, suicide prevention and men’s mental health.

From Humble beginnings, Movember started in 2003 with two friends who wanted to bring back the moustache. Inspired by a friend’s mother who was raising money for breast cancer they decided to make the campaign about men’s health and prostate cancer. Now with over 5 million ‘Mo Bros and Mo Sisters’ and a growing global community Movember has raised over $770 million Australian dollars in supporting over 1,250 men’s health projects.

Since August Meghan has donated over $650 to the Movember Foundation supporting men’s mental health. “Every year I participate in Movember during the month of November… Made With Hope Clay Co started as a hobby to reduce my screen time during lockdown but quickly turned into a business when I sold 47 pairs of earrings my first fortnight!” Meghan explains.

Every purchase made of Made With Hope Clay Co, 50% of the profits go to the Movember Foundation to support men's health. “We also have been providing free 2nd pair earrings for anyone who asks - this incentive was started for our customers to spread kindness and reach out to someone who is doing it tough during COVID,” Meghan explains. 

“Made With Hope Clay Co. was created in honour of my dad who passed away when I was 15 from mental health...It is a small local business, located in Geelong who makes handmade clay earrings with a purpose.”
