Shine the Light On


- Shine the Light On

Once, while Shine the Light On (STLO) founder Eli Brown was unpacking merchandis­e in a store, a woman read his brand’s story on a hangtag and started to cry. Her son had died by suicide weeks before. His name was Eli too. Brown felt a connection—he’d struggled with drugs and alcohol after experienci­ng sexual abuse, and he’d created STLO so that no one would have to go through a similar thing alone. His community now has help at their fingertips thanks to the brand’s support of orgs like Mindfulnes­s Without Borders and the National Alliance on Mental Illness.
