Having lived through traumatic experiences, Lesley-Ann, founder of Empathy + Me and The Empathy Crate, is on a mission to help survivors heal by providing resources and supporting individuals on their healing journey through self-care and empowerment.
Empathy + Me is a platform dedicated to helping trauma survivors heal through compassion, community, and care. Identifying the lack of empathy in the world, she encourages her community to share their stories of trauma and healing.
Tune into the E + M podcast to listen to recorded stories from survivors celebrating trauma and triumph. This podcast not only allows guests to heal but also for the listeners.
“I know that when I share my story with people, it could potentially help someone that is in a similar situation find their own voice, take action, and let them know that they are not alone. It’s not healthy keeping everything bottled up inside. Being vulnerable is okay.”
The Empathy Crate is a collection of all-natural wellness products to encourage moments of meditation, healing, introspection, and peace for people.
“I hand-make 100% pure soy candles, salt soaks and aroma sprays infused with essential oils that people can use during their self-care sessions or on any regular day. I spend a lot of time researching the benefits of specific essential oils and aromatherapy because the scent collections are intended to take you on a journey of healing; Cleanse, Root, Awaken, and Enlighten.”
$1 from every sale goes towards funding Bare Your Sole, an event series for survivors to connect their soul to the sole. Bare Your Sole is all about storytelling, self-care, and sneakers. It encourages attendees to walk in power while helping people have more empathy for themselves. Participants are asked to bring a lightly worn pair of sneakers to donate to a local organization.
