WHAT IS WEAR THE CARE PROJECT?
Wear the Care Project is part of The Creative Hive family. It’s our chance to give back to the community that has helped us realize a dream. We believe in the power of words because that’s what you use to write your story. Each word or phrase can capture an emotion, bring back a memory, or help to inspire you.
The Wear The Care Project is carefully designing limited run clothing pieces that cloak you in comfort, but help you stand behind powerful messaging. Each run will be different because there are so many people we want to help and so many incredible words we need to get out there. The only thing that will be the same on every piece is a heart on the sleeve. We always have ours out there and are hoping through this project we can encourage more people to start showing their hearts!
A portion of all proceeds will go to a specific organization for each design. Please share a picture to @creativehiveyeg on Instagram or Facebook with your Wear The Care Project garment, so we can spread the message!
WHO ARE WE?
Hi! My name is Dez Melenka and I’m one of the partners at The Creative Hive in Edmonton. We are a coworking space, an event space, and a space that brings people together. We are loud, we are proud and we love candy. Mike Tighe is my partner in crime here at The Hive and with his talent behind the camera and passion to collaborate...we believe the sky's the limit. Mike is always ready to jump in to our next adventure for The Creative Hive...so when my sister, Lindsay Melenka pushed to start designing clothing to give back, he said YES!
That’s the thing...this space welcomes people and this was the perfect chance to work with my favourite person in the whole world. My sister, Lindsay. She has a background in graphic design, an eye for detail, and a love for fashion. Throw in how hard she works, how deeply she cares and how patient she is...she’s the perfect person to put behind this initiative. To be honest, it’s needed because my head is always going and my thoughts tend to jump out at random times.
She’s the force behind this part of The Creative Hive...so, say hi to @lindsayloulou83 on social platforms or reach out through us @creativehiveyeg or firstname.lastname@example.org.

I. AM. ENOUGH.
I. Am. Enough. Is the first piece done by the Wear The Care Project. It’s a big statement with just three little words. We want to inspire and empower women to believe they are enough just as they are. No changes needed. No adjustments made. You are enough. These shirts are designed for comfort, to be flattering for all shapes and sizes, and made with love. Enjoy.
