CAITLIN CROSBY Founder
Born and raised in the LA scene, singer-song writer/actress, Caitlin Crosby, started The Giving Keys with a New York hotel key that she decided to make into a necklace. After taking it to a local locksmith to have the word LOVE engraved on it – in representation of Love Your Flawz, another organization she began alongside actress Brie Larson to help people with body image issues – she stumbled upon several other unique looking keys.
“I saw a bunch of other cool, old keys and asked the locksmith to engrave other encouraging words like HOPE, STRENGTH, LOVE, COURAGE, etc.” When it was time for her next music tour, Caitlin took the key necklaces to sell at her merchandise table. Every night, from state to state, the keys would sell-out more than her CD’s; she realized there was something there. But not wanting The Giving Keys to be for her personal gain, one day as she was walking down Hollywood Blvd she saw a homeless couple – Rob & Cera – sitting in the rain, under an umbrella, and holding a sign that read “Ugly, Broke & Hungry.” Right there and then, she cancelled all her plans for the night and invited them to dinner. They spent the next few hours swapping stories and getting to know each other, eventually discovering that Cera made jewelry. In that moment, she knew that they were supposed to be her partners -- and the very next day they were. It wasn’t long before Rob and Cera were able to afford a hotel room, and then an apartment. Today, The Giving Keys has employed more than 15 transitioning homeless.
