Kin•dred: origin: kin—family | noun: A group of related individuals | adjective: alike or similar

Kindred spirits are not so scarce as I used to think. It's splendid to find out there are so many of them in the world.”
L.M. Montgomery | Anne of Green Gables

KINDRED features individuals and their endeavors. As a chapter of the Makeshift story, this is where we CELEBRATE and SHARE the work people do to create community. We honestly believe that's what life is about—kinship, connection, community. We've found it easy to judge and compare people's efforts to build community. So instead, we choose to celebrate them and their bravery. We find inclusion and togetherness exciting and cant wait to fangirl over everyone who is about it too. Obviously, we don't want to keep this to ourselves. It's gotta be shared. This is how we contribute to the community building!

Welcome to a space highlighting the people who inspire and amaze us, YOU.
