You guys. We won a gold medal! Which alone would be pretty cool considering we haven't won a medal since the 3rd grade spelling bee, but this isn't just any old medal...we won the prestigious Mom's Choice Award®
The Mom’s Choice Awards®
has named AVYN among the best. The MCA evaluation process uses a propriety methodology in which entries are scored on a number of elements including production quality, design, educational value, entertainment value, originality, appeal, and cost.
"Our aim is to introduce families and educators to best-in-class products and services,” explains Dawn Matheson, Executive Director of the Mom’s Choice Awards. “We have a passion to help families grow emotionally, physically and spiritually. Parents and educators know that products and services bearing our seal of approval are high-quality and also a great value. The MCA evaluation program is designed to incorporate the expertise of scientists, physicians and other specialists; but we also engage parents, children, educators, and caregivers because they are experts in knowing what is best for their families.”
All formality aside, you have no idea how gratifying it is to receive this medal, both personally and professionally. 2020 was not kind to us and it felt like we were fighting an uphill battle all year. There were definitely days we wanted to give up, but we just kept pushing forward.
In our hearts, we knew we were building something special. Something that gives women the opportunity to feel like herself in any phase of life. We're damn proud, which is why we're shouting it from the rooftops. But pride can only take you so far and it starts to wear off when there's constant road blocks and you're up against some big name competition.
The MCA gold stamp of approval provides so much credibility and legitimacy to our brand. We know mom consumers have no shortage of choices & this gold stamp proves that AVYN is among the best products. However, it also shows that trusting your gut and following your heart can lead to something pretty amazing!
Never in a million years did we think this would be the outcome! We're so grateful for this amazing community and the support you've given us - we absolutely could not have done this without you!
Big hugs to you all!
Lauren & Chandler
