Meet Michele Young-Crook, the woman behind the company! M YoungCrook Design Inc (MYC Design) started due to her love of crystals and a way for her to utilize her artistic talents while giving back to youth.
Michele is Anishinaabe, and from the Bear Clan, she was looking for a way to give back to Indigenous Youth, so it seemed only fitting to open a company that did just that. With 10% of our proceeds going to Kids Help Phone’s Action Plan for Supporting First Nations, Inuit and Métis Young People, a cause she is very passionate about.
Why owl Boxes? Michele wanted to find a way to help Indigenous Women-owned businesses thrive during COVID. Her son Cassius came up with the idea to curate a box with products from other companies, so people only had to shop in one place.
