PSNeverGiveUp Store Launches Black Friday, Announces Charity
Former news anchor and chronic illness advocate launches online shop to establish and support the PSNeverGiveUp Foundation, providing resources and grants for couples experiencing fertility issues due to chronic illness.
The shop features a variety of products, all sourced from locally-owned small businesses, ranging from apparel and jewelry, home comforts and decor, to hand-crafted bath and body products.
The PSNeverGiveUp Store will also support an important cause: the PSNeverGiveUp Foundation. Launching in 2021, the PSNeverGiveUp Foundation will provide resources and grants for couples experiencing fertility issues due to chronic illness.
"We're proud to announce that 5% of our PSNeverGiveUp Store profits will go toward establishing and supporting the PSNeverGiveUp Foundation,"
After working as a morning news anchor and local TV personality for more than 15 years, Pete Scalia is putting his heart and soul into launching PSNeverGiveUp — a multi-platform movement that includes the Pete Scalia Never Give Up Podcast, social media, music, video, public speaking and more — to entertain, inform, and inspire others by sharing uplifting "Never Give Up" moments.
Pete was diagnosed with severe rheumatoid arthritis at age 30. After four major joint replacements, he and his wife subsequently endured years of fertility issues. The media professional, now a father of three, has now made it his life's mission to educate and inspire others to never give up.
