Casey’s collection is dedicated to our brother, Casey Wiktorski. Funny, caring, and lovable are only a few of the many traits that everyone loved about him. Casey had the power to light up the entire room with his jokes and his smile is something we will never forget.
Tragically in January of 2016, Casey took his own life after battling depression and social anxiety. As a family, we vowed to take whatever steps were necessary to ensure that no person or family would have to go through what we did. Unfortunately, every day across the United States there are families that live our current nightmare.
So, this collection is not just for Casey, it is dedicated to all of the 'Caseys' out there. This is for all of those who suffer from any form of mental illness: you are not alone; we are here to help and support you; your story and more importantly your life matters. We challenge everyone who chooses a bow tie from Casey's collection to wear it for someone you know who struggles with mental illness--be it a friend, a family member, or yourself. Let them know how much they mean to you and be the light that guides them through the darkness.
Twenty percent (20%) of all the profits from Casey’s collection will be donated to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP). AFSP is a voluntary health organization dedicated to saving lives and bringing hope to those affected by suicide through the following initiatives: funding scientific research; developing public education; and advocating for public policies in mental health and suicide prevention.
All of the bow ties in this collection are either quirky, hipster, or just straight up stylish. Casey was not only an amazingly talented artist, but his sense of style was second to none. A popular collection because of the way the bow tie stands out to everyone--just as Casey did.
