100% of Proceeds Going to Charity for Hydrocephalus Awareness Month

At Arya, giving back is core to our commitment of helping our community find their strength. We would not have gotten to where we are today without the love and support of our community - and that’s why we’re on a mission to pay it forward. Up to 100% of proceeds from every sale will always go to supporting causes that help lift up our community. And, we believe in partnering with our community to select charities that matter.

September is Hydrocephalus Awareness Month, and we are proud to give 100% of the proceeds from the “Strength in Love” Comfiest Crop Sweater towards finding a cure for hydrocephalus and improving the lives of those impacted by the condition. Approximately 1-2 babies for every 1000 births are born with hydrocephalus, and children with hydrocephalus can face a lot of challenges and require long term care and monitoring. Hydrocephalus also affects adults - over 1 million people in the US - and can be caused by a brain injury or infection, among other reasons, or as part of the aging process.

For families impacted by hydrocephalus, the diagnosis means a lifetime of uncertainty. The Hydrocephalus Association serves to educate on what the condition entails, provide resources, and connect individuals to larger communities that provide support and understanding. There is currently no cure for hydrocephalus and little is known about the causes, but recent research has shown that a cure is possible. The primary treatment for hydrocephalus, a shunt inserted into the brain, was developed 50 years ago and has one of the highest failure rates of any surgical treatment. This highlights the need for continued research and the Hydrocephalus Association supports a strategic research initiative focusing on work that will advance the understanding of the condition, discover its causes, improve treatment and help put an end to hydrocephalus. This research is powerful and every dollar matters.

We sincerely thank Dani Evanson for sharing her adorable and resilient daughter, Willa’s story with us and recommending the Hydrocephalus Association. You can find them on Instagram @hydroassoc. Dani Evanson reached out to the brand on Instagram to recommend the Hydrocephalus Association. Dani's 2-year old daughter, Willa was born with the condition. Approximately 1-2 babies for every 1000 births are born with hydrocephalus, and these children can face a lot of challenges and require long term care and monitoring. For families impacted by hydrocephalus, the diagnosis means a lifetime of uncertainty. There is currently no cure for hydrocephalus, and little is known about the causes, but recent research has shown that a cure is possible. 100% of the proceeds from the “Strength in Love” Comfiest Crop (and up to 100% from all other designs) will be donated towards finding a cure for hydrocephalus and improving the lives of those impacted by the condition.
