G4G Initiative Is Emazing Lights’ Best Move Yet
Posted by VMan on December 20, 2015
There are few times where a story goes beyond the music / product / festival, and it is those times I am happy to share most about.
Emazing Lights, known around the word for their foundation of the gloving movement, their Shark Tank appearance, and sister clothing company iHeartRaves, has got the internet buzzing about one fan’s life that’s been changed forever from gloving. His name is Matthew.
Matthew deals with cerebral palsy and a paraplegic disability. He is only 17. Like any American with a disability at school, students and life in general isn’t always kind to people in Matthew position; but it was one action from a single individual that changed his life.
After seeing Matthew casually practicing arm and finger whips and dance motions, his brother suggested that he get into gloving.
One glove set and a handful of practice sessions later, Matthew was deep into a new hobby that not only brought a new form joy and happiness into his life, but also improved cognitive abilities once hindered by his disorders.
Shocked, Matthew’s parents contacted Emazing Lights to tell them how there son’s finger dexterity and arm mobility improved. This connection between EL and Matthews family inspired a series of actions which will now have an impact that reaches far beyond the two groups.
After meeting the CEO and learning about the new, but unanticipated medical benefits of Gloving, Emazing Lights has started a charity initiative entitled “Glove 4 Glove” which boast a massive, but noble undertaking: for every glove set sold, Emazing Lights will donate one glove set to someone in need.
If that’s not an inspiring story, I don’t know what is. Emazing Lights has set a standard that other EDM accessory companies should strive for.
The Glove 4 Glove initiative is well underway. To learn about G4G or how Matthew’s life has changed, follow the links below.
