It all started in 2014 when we met online (yes, really!) bonding over our love for exclamation points (!!!), having the same name (Colleen) and our babies born just a day apart. We shared a passion for kindness and had an instant connection by way of e-mails. Our friendship grew from e-mails to texts to phone calls, and we decided what better way to share kindness than putting it across the hearts of our kids on comfy tees for all to see!
In the summer of 2014, EVERYKIND (formerly known as Mama Said Tees) was created before we ever even met in person. At first, we only sold tees with kind messages, but our small shop "that could" has grown into so much more than we could have ever dreamed. EVERYKIND is a lifestyle brand that spreads kindness through unique designs created with you in mind. We believe that no matter who you are, you fit right here with us.
We want to shout to the world (and we need your help) that we embrace everyone's differences and we have a desire for EVERYKIND to be accepted. We are a growing brand with so much to achieve and we are so thankful to all of you for helping us share our mission in kindness!

IN LOVING MEMORY
On July 27th 2014, five days after we launched our new company, Colleen Stine lost her sister Shannon in an unthinkable act of murder/suicide. Shannon was a beloved school teacher with a contagious smile and endearing personality who radiated kindness. She was a friend to all who met her, and she was Colleen's greatest fan and supporter in her new business. Shannon left behind two amazing boys, who Colleen and her husband adopted! We launched EVERYKIND on July 27th 2018, exactly four years after Colleen lost her best friend. We have come full circle and know Shannon has had a hand in this venture. We know she would be so proud of us and of all of you, and we want her legacy to live on through EVERYKIND.
