Karen Pickle ~ Group Hug Apparel

Karen Pickle lives in Kingsville Ontario with her husband, Chris, and her son Andrew Banar. She enjoys yoga, reading and watching a great movie. But her true passion is helping her son, Andrew, who was born with Down syndrome, run his own t-shirt business—Group Hug Apparel.

Together they manage, print, sell, and ship Andrew’s personally designed tees all over the world. And what started out as an idea to raise money for Andrew’s college fund, has turned into a thriving company, that not only supports Andrew’s future, but also supports many children’s charities and support groups. Including: We Care For Kids, Ronald McDonald House, Children’s Health Foundation, Children’s Miracle Network, Community Living and many others.

Recently, Karen and Andrew also began directly organizing local activities for young adults with physical and intellectual disabilities. The group enjoys swimming, cooking, dancing, and other daily outings.

You will also find Karen and Andrew out in the community sharing their story, advocating for families and individuals, and most importantly, sharing hugs!
