Gypsy– a nomadic or free-spirited person
Giver– to present voluntarily and without expecting compensation; bestow
Gypsy Giver– one with the universe; always finds beauty in everything. We are fearless because we follow our hearts. We are rebellious wanderers who love to give back to the places we call home and the places we have yet gone. We love life and show our upmost respect for our Mother Nature. We are here because something needs to happen, because we can be the revolution.
We (Lindsay, Mel, and Scarlet, our VW van) are ready to take the road! Our paths crossed in third grade for a reason. We are soul mates with a dream. We are from rural New Jersey and left-handed. We love music, traveling, the sun, NYC, helping others, and having fun! Much like our similarities, our differences complement one another. Everything from our height difference and hair color to our zodiac signs, our differences mend us together.
We moved to New York City when we left high school to fulfill our passion for fashion and the busy city lifestyle. We met, created and accomplished many dreams of ours here in New York City. Something that has always been in our hearts and souls is the love of helping those around us. We started to realize that we were waking up on days feeling a lack of drive in our corporate jobs. We asked ourselves, why waste such a short life with the drama of corporate America? Day in and day out, we found ourselves in a rut, a rat race that we didn’t want to win because winning meant selling our souls for something we didn’t believe in. We craved a slower, more soulful lifestyle where we can use our best attributes. After finding some solace in running, something just came to us, a calling if you will. Why have we stopped following our dreams? It’s time we gave back to the world that has given us so much, so many chances to be who we want to be. We love to make others smile and sometimes that can make all the difference. We are going to let our souls shine while we give back to the cities, people, and places that have touched our lives. We are going to volunteer our time and energy; hoping to enlighten others to follow their passions and make a little difference in the world.
Our goal is simple, to help others. Whether we volunteer at a food pantry, donate our time to aid those who can’t do things on their own, work at national parks or music festivals, our intentions are the same. Simply, help. We are in it as long as we can do good, spread good karma, and take it with us on the road.
