Artlifting and Leesa
I have written about Artlifting before. I am an investor in this company and they have continued to be impressive at every turn. The c0-founder, Liz Powers is committed to her vision of building a huge company while changing the life of every single person she touches along the way. Artlifting empowers homeless and disabled individuals by selling their artwork.
Liz partnered with Leesa. Leesa makes hand crafted mattresses and is one of the fastest growing eretailers this year. The founder is committed to giving back. The company donates one mattress for every mattress they sell.
The artists work is stitched into the mattress with the the signature Leesa three horizontal stripes at the bottom. Here is the artist Scott Benner with one of his mattresses of art.
It is hard not to get emotional when you meet these artists and see Liz changing their lives. The best part is their work provides an income. That income changes their lives, makes them feel empowered and shows others who might be down on their luck that there is hope. This is a picture of the artists whose work was there that night.
There are many other licensing opportunities in the works for Artlifting.
I love this company.
