FIRST RAY DESIGNS

Hi, my name is Arushi. I am a young designer and entrepreneur

located in the Bay Area who wanted to create a small business

to help teens and children. I have created First Ray Designs as a way

to put a smile on children’s faces. Stickers are a mark of everyone's

childhood, and I wanted to replicate the joy and conviviality that

stickers bring. My products are designed for use by all ages in bullet

journals, water bottles, or just to stick on your forehead :)

 

I remember  my hospital visits when I was young. I didn’t have a major

disease, just Fourth-Nerve Palsy, which was mostly cured with therapy

and some medication, but as a child, having to go to the hospital so

much became quite tiresome. But simple acts of kindness, a sticker

and a lollipop, quelled my nerves and reminded me to focus on the

positive things. Children staying at hospitals often do not receive these

small gifts to remind them of the whimsy of childhood.

 

All net proceed from sticker sales at First Ray Designs is being used to

benefit children’s hospitals around the country, with 50% specifically

benefiting the Recreational Therapy Fun Fund at Lucile Packard

Children’s Hospital Stanford. Remaining proceeds are being used to

donate to St Jude's Children's Hospital. Additionally, I contacted

several children's hospitals during COVID-19 pandemic to donate

sticker packs, hoping that these small reminders of childhood will

be able to bring a smile to the faces of children in hospitals. I am

grateful to all the 20+ hospitals all over the nation, who have been

accepting the monthly donations and have encouraged me every

single time with their kind words., pictures and testimonials.

 

I hope you will want to donate or buy a sticker pack to not only

increase your collection but also help children in need! If you are a

hospital who would like to get a donation of stickers feel free to 

contact me.
