Despi Mayes Experiences Joy in the Act of Giving

May 19, 2021

Despi is an artist, marketing strategist, consultant, beekeeper, and amateur guitar player. For her, joy is being able to give kindness to someone else. She believes kindness is joyful because it’s an antidote to all of the ugliness and unkindness. She experiences joy a lot and appreciates it in all of its forms. She created Give and Take Indy – upcycled food pantry boxes stocked by neighbors, for neighbors – to share joy with others.
