Each key is engraved with a message like FEARLESS, HOPE, STRENGTH or COURAGE. When the wearer of the key encounters someone else who needs the message – they are encouraged to give it away and share their “pay it forward” story.

MEET THE FOUNDER

Growing up in Hollywood and working in the entertainment industry inspired Caitlin Crosby has worked as an actress, singer, songwriter and entrepreneur. She began writing songs with Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds in high school and subsequently signed to his label, Arista Records.

Over the last three years, The Giving Keys has employed 28 people who have struggled with homelessness, helped 22 move into permanent housing, and collected thousands of pay it forward stories. Today, they have over 50 employees and their products are sold at Nordstrom, Anthropologie, Fred Segal, Kitson and nearly 2,000 other retail stores around the world including E Salon|Spa.
