About 'Share Your Marks' Articles
The Carvemark blog was launched back in July of 2020 to share the stories of people who were taking a different approach to life and living it to the fullest! Shortly after, we combined the inspirational stories with activewear and leisurewear apparel. While the older stories are still on our other website, found at www.shareyourmarks.com, we plan to convert them to this page and introduce new stories every week throughout 2021!
We believe that there are too many brands that are known only for their garments and clothing. CARVEMARK is different. We want CARVEMARK to first be known for the stories. The acts, adventures, and dedication that everyday people have put into their lives to create a better tomorrow for themselves and others. Our apparel is made so that you can take on and create your own marks as well. Clothing that is a constant reminder to take action and create meaningful change for yourself and others. Clothing that aims to inspire people to reinvent themselves and tackle the most difficult tasks at hand.
Over the past few months, the CARVEMARK team has had the opportunity to meet, listen, and learn from many amazing people who are making genuine impacts on the world around them. We have heard firsthand how each person, story, and path is significantly different. We have heard the challenges, obstacles, tragedies, and failures. We have heard the victories, accomplishments, inspiration and uplifting turnarounds of people who constantly strive to be better.
In launching our site, apparel and by sharing these stories, our hopes are that CARVEMARK can be an inspiration to people from many different backgrounds. We hope to raise the bar and the expectations for 2021!
We hope to show that any person can make a true and genuine impact on the people and the world around them. We hope to ignite the adventure, thrill, excitement, passion, kindness, and gratitude that everyone is capable of experiencing. We hope to empower people and to give them the resources they need to carve out their own positive and lasting marks in the world.
In the constantly revolving, changing, confusing and complex world we live in, we hope to spread awareness, share different perspectives and generate inspiration and positivity in every area possible. If you would like to share anything with us please reach out through our Contact page, message us on Instagram, @carvemark, or email us at email@example.com.
WHY IS THE NAME: “CARVEMARK”?
The name CARVEMARK came to us after hearing a coach yell "carve your mark" in a motivational pregame speech. While this can be taken as play hard, make a difference, or never give up.... we think of it in more general and everyday terms - that anyone is capable of doing anything - no matter how large or small - if something matters to you then go and make your mark. Carve. Your. Mark.
It just so happens that CARVEMARK is also derived from “carve out” and “landmark”. “Carve out” means to form something new and definite from something that already exists. “Landmark” is an event, discovery, or change marking an important stage or turning point in something. In combining the two words, we intend to show that anyone and anything is capable of creating definitive change in themselves and their surroundings. There is always a starting point where one person or even a society can create new and better versions of themselves.
HOW IS A NEW BRAND WITH SUCH BIG DREAMS ALREADY FOLLOWING THROUGH WITH THEIR MISSION?
By sharing the stories that inspire everyone, by partnering with charities who share our values and interest in creating a better world, and by pushing our readers to put themselves and those around them in better situations and mindsets every day.
Each of the charities we partner with is setting an example for the future and we want to be involved in their journey every step of the way. More details on our charity work will be shared in the next few weeks. We are working with Neverthirst who provides clean water and builds wells for lesser developed communities. We are working with Protect Our Winters, who is protecting the places and lifestyles we love. We are working with Build On who is building schools and expanding education in lesser developed countries. We are excited to support and be more involved with these organizations as we aim to bring more awareness to the organizations and their missions. When the time is right, we will let you know where a portion of our proceeds will be going!
In addition to partnering with charities, we want to share impacts made every day by awesome people. You’ll be able to take a look at these stories on our blog and we hope these stories will empower you to take action! Anyone is capable of achieving new heights and making a difference if they set their mind to it. We hope that you see this as a theme across all our pages. It is our mission to inspire people from different backgrounds and demographics to make the changes that they want to see in their lives and their communities. We believe that every story has an impact on others and we want to hear yours today! If you would like to share your story with us, get in touch on our contact page!
In the future, our goal is to be known as the most trusted community of individuals for creating a better world through adventure, self-improvement, community involvement, environmental impact, social justice, sustainable and ethical actions, and positive change. It’s time to carve some marks!
