Hello dear humans! My name is Sarah, creator of bySaySay 💖

The idea for bySaySay began in my 7th grade classroom as a way for me to inspire and encourage my students. Shortly into my first year of teaching I found each that student has very different emotional needs. One student was incredibly intelligent and hardworking but suffered from severe test anxiety. Another lived in the shadow of his older brother, never feeling special. A new student was experiencing school for the very first time and felt like an outcast. Another practically lived alone because her mother worked three jobs to support the family. These kids needed something extra special from someone.

I started drawing pictures and writing expressions on index cards to provide a bit of extra love and support. That first year I only gave away about 30 notes, but those 30 notes left their mark. Students would return to me and say that they kept the note in their backpack or binder and looked at it everyday. After using it, some gave their note to someone they felt needed it more. Many taped up their notes in lockers or on bedroom walls. I soon realized the notes were serving a greater purpose than originally intended… and that there was a potential to reach so many more!

When Ash came on board, we realized how these cards could be a tool to start conversations in everyday life and build trust across all of your important relationships. Help us build a community of humans learning to be vulnerable and say what you need to say!
