So, what even is a Crumble?
As a teenager, Brandon Love struggled with depression and fitting in. After an attempted suicide attempt, Brandon decided to stay busy, get crafty and do good.
That was 4 years ago, and in that time Brandon's creation which began as a simple candle company has sprawled into an international Kindness Movement! Raising thousands for crucial life saving foundations and impacting hundreds of thousands throughout his online community known as the "Crumble Family".
The Crumble Family was born from Brandon's Facebook Group of the same name, in 2015. After moving over a thousand miles away from his family and loved ones to find himself, he found (a lot of) friends online who all wanted to rally behind his quirky creations, positive attitude and the life lessons he's been sharing along the way.
So, in short? Crumble Co. is Brandon Love's passion child. A platform for his designs and creations to find their way into your heart and home, and make you crack a smile all the while.

"My name's Brandon, and in 2015 I attempted to end my life.
At 17, I found myself in a common situation you may be familiar with. All at once, from all sides, it seemed everything was crumbling around me. My schooling, my career path and my three year relationship all came to a halting stop.
I found myself at rock bottom, which in my case was my father's closet sitting on a bag of old clothes, fiddling with a gun and contemplating quitting life.
One phrase, buried beneath all my pain and worry, whispered loud enough in my heart for me to barely hear: "Stay busy." The words of my close friend, in her advice of getting through this hard time in my life. She told me "Go out, stay busy, keep your hands creating things, stay social, and in time you'll look back and it. Will. Be. Better."
And better sounded... better.
I went downstairs, with the last $50 I had to my name and a crazy idea that piqued my interest a few years back. I went to my Mom, and said "Let's start a candle company, I'll put in $50, and you put in $50, and you can keep the leftover money."
I just wanted to stay crafty, I wanted to stay busy, I wanted to feel better.
And there I stood, in my mother's kitchen back in Baltimore, with a rusted up decade old pot on our gas stove. Melting wax. Mixing. Pouring. Creating new names... New ideas.
That was three years ago...
And today I am even better than I thought I could ever be.
My soul purpose is to allow the light that Crumble Co. has been in my life, to be a light in the hearts of many others.
While life has had its endless ups and downs, I can't imagine never having met the amazing people, living through the amazing journey and doing the amazing things that I have been blessed to do since that vulnerable night in my father's closet, fiddling a gun.
I can't imagine never seeing another sunset, or another sunrise. Feeling the rain on my face, or the sun on my skin.
Crumble Co. has saved my life, and it's my biggest hope that it can assist in saving the lives of others, and making many people feel the bountiful joy it has brought me.
Remember, you are oh, SO, very loved!
