LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — A Lexington lifestyle brand is making a difference one "thumbs up" at a time. Inspired by the owner's special needs brother, No Worries aims to promote happiness while raising awareness about the special needs community.
"He's just always had this vibe about him that attracts people to him, " Rachel Mosley said of her brother Bradley.
Bradley Mosley lives at the Stewart Home School in Frankfort. He is hearing impaired and mentally challenged, but to her he is so much more.
"He's made such an impact on everyone he comes in contact with. He just has such a magnetic personality," Rachel Mosley said.
"He is always smiling, always excited, and I thought, you know, I want to live a life like that."
So, Rachel Mosley decided to dedicate her life to spreading what she calls Bradley's "no worries" lifestyle.
"I thought if I could share the word of 'no worries' and living a happy lifestyle everyone could kind of adapt to that, " Rachel Mosley said.
Rachel started her lifestyle brand "No Worries" just about two years ago after graduating from the University of Kentucky. Her line consists of shirts, hats, even dog bandannas all with Bradley's signature "thumbs up."
"This is my sister Rachel and we are No Worries, " Bradley Mosley explained.
The goal, Rachel said, is to inspire others to be kind and informed about the special needs community. She wants the world at-large to focus more on what they can do rather than what they cannot do.
Ten percent of each purchase goes straight to a special needs charity.
"If you just meet individuals with special needs and include them you can learn so much about them, " Rachel Mosley said,
Rachel said to Bradley "no worries" is a place, and he is not wrong. It is a state of mind she is hoping that, together, they can spread to the world.
"Everybody has worries, but it's just going past that and having no worries!"
No Worries is supporting Buddies of the Bluegrass this year, a charity that helps families with down syndrome adoptions.
