Holding It Down was first dreamt of in 2012 when our first of four children was diagnosed with Autism, ADHD & Tourettes. We very quickly realised how difficult, scary, lonely and often depressing it can be after a diagnosis and how very little information was given to us at this time. After several months trying to figure out our new life and dealing with the range of emotions we never expected to feel, we were finally ready to pick ourselves up and learn everything we possibly could.
We knew that we weren't the only family struggling and that there sadly were so many other parents sitting at home with their heads in their hands crying at night, trying to figure out how they will keep holding it down. It was at this exact moment that H.I.D came to me. I help people, it's my thing some would say, so I wanted to create something that let me help others, whilst being able to keep Holding It Down at home for my family
H.I.D is for everyone who quite simply is waking up every morning and choosing to keep Holding It Down. We want to provide our customers with items that we love and use ourselves, and that help us HID in our lives. We have big plans for Holding It down and we can't wait to share this adventure with you all.
