My friend, Rhonda Sparks, has a great company; UVSKINZ. She definately has a mission. I am inspired by her story and thought with the hustle and bustle of getting back to school some quite inspiration and thoughts of being greatful for what we have , would be a good thing. So here is her  story. UV Skinz Story: After I lost my 32-year old husband to skin cancer, just three days after the tragic 9-11 occurrence of 2001, I decided my life’s mission would be to raise awareness about the disease anyway I could. Getting kids covered all over the world is an impactful way to make a difference and thus, UV Skinz was born.

UV Skinz is not an afterthought as are swimshirt lines for other national companies that carry multiple clothing lines. UV Skinz produces swimshirts and focuses on providing the highest quality, hippest designs so that kids literally want to “Live in our Skinz” and not take them off. Our customer service, attention to detail, responsiveness and experience allow us to provide that extra measure of value which inspires invaluable customer loyalty. We care about our products and the ability of our clients who wear them to enjoy living under the sun.

Everyone should feel free in the sun wearing UV Skinz. Join us in our mission to GET KIDS COVERED!
