Less than five months ago on March 13, Alisa Ogden decided she wanted to spread love, raise awareness, and encourage acceptance. Today, Alisa’s mission has touched people from all over the country. How did she achieve this? By starting her own company.

Alisa, a 37-year-old woman with Downs Syndrome and athlete for the Special Olympics, started From the Heart; a company that creates unique necklaces that symbolize individuality and love.
