Feel Good Friday: Heal in Colour
When Tianna McFarlane was trying to find a bandaid to cover up a cut on her leg, she came to the realization that there were no bandages available to match her brown skin. Recognizing that she wasn’t alone and that other people were likely looking for the same thing, Tianna took matters into her own hands and founded Heal in Colour, a line of inclusive bandages for black and brown people.
Heal in Colour is revolutionizing the way people shop for bandages. They want to create a world where black and brown bandages are the norm.
McFarlane is a true example of how one person and one simple action have the power to create meaningful change. Through her efforts, she is helping people feel valued and included one bandaid at a time.

The idea of Feel Good Fridays started because we believe the simple things that bring a smile to our face, are the best things. Smiling and laughing have been proven to reduce stress in our lives! When we smile or laugh it releases neurotransmitters in our brain called endorphins, which are in charge of making us happy and helping to relieve stress.
