Affiliate Disclosure

The Generous & Kind Company is primarily a retail endeavor focused on selling apparel, accessories and home goods. However, from time to time I will link to a product that I love or want to promote on our blog. This link may or may not be an affiliate link but you should assume that it is, just to err on the safe side. If you purchase an item I mention, I may earn a small commission off that item, typically a percentage of its price. This helps support The Generous & Kind Company by offsetting what it costs to maintain this site and is very much appreciated.


It’s also worth mentioning that I do not accept any free products or compensation in exchange for mentioning them on the blog or through social media. I really just mention things because I am genuinely thrilled with it and want you to know about it. If you have any questions regarding the above, please do not hesitate to contact me through the contact form. You can find that here.
