In God We Must
I.G.W.M. started this journey with one mission in mind — to provoke, embody and influence a pioneering spirit amongst others.
John Elijah Richards unintentionally started I.G.W.M. in the summer of 2014 out of necessity, with no real name or mission in mind other than to provide a source of income to pay for medical expenses after losing his job, and health benefits, shortly after, he was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. Coming from a lowly and desperate state of mind, he decided to take matters into his own hands and overcome his circumstance.
Turning to his creative side of life, Elijah started making rings for friends and family to pay for insulin and diabetic supplies. The rest of the story is an outcome of a positive state of mind, and lots of help from loving friends and strangers.
Due to the success of the brand, I.G.W.M. become a vision. One that couldn't have been possible without any of the support that was received from family, friends, followers, mentors and purchases. It couldn't have been done without you. This isn't just I.G.W.M. It's all of us.
