How is Stand Up Speak Up different from your average online store?
We care about more than just selling you something. It is first and foremost the mission of this company to put as much kindness as possible into the world while encouraging our community to be braver, wiser and more mindful of the world and people around them.
We accomplish this through promoting designs that speak to social justice topics and by donating 100% of our profits to foster care reform through Child Welfare PAC. We are also committed to doing as many Acts of Kindness as possible throughout the year, by donating products and cash to homeless and women’s shelters throughout the Greater Toronto Area.

Who runs Stand Up Speak Up?
Stand Up Speak Up was created by mother and son Karla and Zach Tolstoy. It came to be after a lifetime of conversations about ways they could help to improve the world. They wanted to create a company that encourages people, within their own community and beyond, to commit themselves to kindness first and would empower them to not only live happier and healthier lives but would also speak up and act to help others achieve the same.
Karla and Zach are supported by a (very) small team committed to helping them realize their dream. Each member wears multiple hats to make sure we are providing quality products and a great customer experience to everyone that visits us.
- Ethically made without the use of sweatshops
