Pia Pearce, Kevin’s mother and co-founder of Simon Pearce along with her husband Simon, says that the KP LoveYourBrain Bowl was designed to inspire others to support this worthy mission and to give back to a community who stood by them throughout the journey. “As close as our family is, we could not have gotten through this without the many people around the world who reached out with their support and personal stories,” says Pia. “So in return, we’re doing what we do best: making glass that people enjoy…and in the process we hope to raise money to assist others in similar challenging situations.”
