Note that The Heart Warrior Project is run by one guy, which is, yes, me.

Like most people, I have bills to pay.

If you have found or come to find anything helpful or insightful here on the website, please consider supporting The Heart Warrior Project.

If you are a survivor, I would recommend buying either a Heart Warrior t-shirt or a Heart Warrior mug—or both!

I, together with an illustrator, created the design for them (and we’re working on more cool designs to come). 

Both the t-shirt and the mug are made from durable and quality materials, and don’t they look just great?! Of course, these are just suggestions, but I do not think you will regret having them.

I personally love wearing the t-shirt myself. And I drink my coffee every day out of my Heart Warrior mug

If the t-shirt or mug doesn’t speak to you, there are a few other ways to support The Heart Warrior Project:

  • DONATIONS: The project accepts donations. Anything, even as little as 1 dollar, can help me keep this project alive.
  • AFFILIATE LINKS: If there are any links to a product mentioned in an article or podcast episode and you are interested in buying it, consider doing so through the provided link. Likely, it will be an affiliate link. What is an affiliate link, you ask? Basically, it is a link where I could earn a small commission if someone buys the product through that link. Buying through this link will not cost you anything extra.
  • SPREAD THE WORD: If you like what I am doing here, you could always simply spread the word about this project to anyone you think might benefit. It would help a lot.

Choosing any of these ways to support this project will truly help me a lot in putting out more content and building The Heart Warrior Project further.

Many thanks,

    Hey, Jellis here.

    Together with Eva Mpatshi, a very talented Belgian artist who has been my go-to tattoo artist for years, we made a new incredibly stunning, awesome-looking design for our mugs!
