New local clothing company helps kids in need

Who says you can’t dress cute, fashionable and support a great cause at the same time?! Well, that’s exactly the message of cousins, Tashina Baer and Brooke Fattal. They’ve combined their love for fashion and philanthropy, by creating Zella Mae Inspirations, as a way to share the power of positive thinking.

Our apparel line is about more than just a comfortable shirt and a cute bag. It is about spreading positivity while also giving back to others at the same time.”

The dynamic duo launched the clothing company in April 2015 and have already seen great success with their positive message fashion shirts, tanks and bags. Through sayings like, ‘Live your Dream’, ‘Radiate Positivity’, ‘Love your Life’ and ‘Good things are going to happen’, the cousins’ motto, “Wear Happy, Share Happy” is catching on. Each time an item is purchased, one “Share Happy” shirt will be donated to a charitable organization. The “Share Happy” donation shirts have the positive message “I am brave, strong, smart, kind and awesome.”

Zella Mae is sold online at as well as in select retail locations:
