Ali O’Grady is the founder of zero-waste card start-up Thoughtful Human. She works to take the “greetings” out and put the human back into cards and how we communicate—specifically in dynamic relationships and challenging life circumstances (such as cancer, grief, depression, addiction, strained relationships, and global pandemics).
Through Thoughtful Human, she emphasizes radical empathy and works to build community, educate, and destigmatize conversations about physical and mental health. Learn more about her personal story and mission in her 2019 TEDx: The Questions We Never Ask About Cancer, Depression, Addiction.
Thoughtful Human products are available online at thoughtfulhuman.co and in stores throughout the United States and UK, including Paper Source, Whole Foods Market, and Paperchase UK.
