How it all started
While working at and orphanage in 2014, KINDKINIS founder Merilyn Lopez was assaulted at work, she spend some time on disability leave and went through a period of deep reflection. These difficult moments shaped her and steered her onto a path of philanthropic pursuits. She graduated from California State University of Northridge with a degree in psychology, interned at an emergency helpline, later became a therapist for autistic children, inspired by family’s journey with her younger autistic brother, she decided to create a for-profit business with giving at its core. The idea? To desrupt the swimwear industry while creating better solutions, building wells in developing countries tohelp aid the clean water crisis. And with that, KINDKINIS—short for Kind Bikinis—was born.
