Where It All Began

This is the exact replica of the very first ever Giving Key. It was a New York City Hotel Room that our Founder, Caitlin Crosby was staying in while on music tour, that gave her the idea. She wore this Hotel Key around her necklace and after many compliments, she hired a locksmith to engrave the first phrase, and the rest is history. We made replicas of this exact NYC hotel room key to always remember where we came from.
