Our Team

Co-Founder, CEO
Jacey Schnarr

Why do you believe in R80s?
I know there is a better way to execute client and employee gifting than what the traditional options have been. A beautiful, thoughtful and conscious gift leaves a meaningful impression and supports our community. It also goes a lot farther to display appreciation to the recipient . It's a win-win. 

What do you want to accomplish at R80s?
I love it when our clients are introduced to amazing new merchants, makers and artisans. Receiving emails asking where they can find their gift items and buy more is the best. We love to amplify the voice of these incredible small businesses!

How do you give back?
Being a hot yoga junkie I love that Raised80s has been able to support New Leaf Foundation for the last 2 years as part of our 2% of revenue donation. They do amazing work in providing inner city youth with accessible opportunities to take care of their mental, emotional and physical health. So every bit we get to do to support this makes me so happy.

80s Fun Fact
My fav 80's movie is probably Space Camp. Who remembers that one? Please @ me to discuss :) Other favourites include slightly obscure cult classics like Project X and The Dream Team (although I'm not sure any of these have aged well).

Why do you believe in R80s?
I believe in Raised80's because our mission aligns with my values on sustainability, ethical practices and diversity. I love that we are helping to change the ways that big businesses think about how their dollars could be better spent. By curating beautiful and thoughtful gifts we get the chance to spotlight small and diverse businesses. Helping small businesses to grow and get the exposure they deserve brings me joy daily! 

What I would like to accomplish at Raised80's?
I would like to contribute to seeing a shift in how corporations approach spending. Reducing waste, promoting sustainability, respecting workers rights and providing transparency in the supply chain is so important to me. I love that Raised80s is working to promote those values and that I get to be a part of the process. 

Why do you believe in R80s?
I am a dog lover!! I give back by supporting charities like Puppy Love that help to stop the practice of puppy mills. As well as shelters and rehoming efforts. 

Fun 80's fact
I'm a big fan of 80's hair. I wish that the bigger the frizzier the better was still the way people style their hair. I am also a huge fan of mullets both for men and women!

I believe in Raised80s because I get to work with some amazing women whose values align with mine. Supporting ethical and diverse Canadian small businesses is a great way to spend my day.

What do you want to accomplish at R80s?
I would love to see R80s grow and become Canada’s go-to business for corporate experiences and gifts for the larger organizations and see the positive impact it has on the lives of creative entrepreneurs.

How do you give back? 
Since 2014, I have been a volunteer with the Friends for Life Bike Rally cycling from Toronto to Montreal in support of the Toronto People with AIDS Foundation. I also volunteer with Fife House. These organisations help to raise much-needed funds and bring awareness to people living with HIV/AIDS.   

80's Fun Fact
I danced a lot to this song. It still brings a smile to my face when I hear it.
