Mark Donnelly is founder of Irish clothing Company HUH (How’s Ur Head?), a brand that focuses on raising Mental Health Awareness and donates 10% of all sales to various charities that help bring the story of mental health into everyday conversation.
After finishing college, Mark took up a role as brand ambassador with Tullamore Dew in the United States and when the pandemic hit, he decided to begin researching his business idea and put the wheels in motion to set up his clothing range.
After spending time in the US where the phrase ‘HUH’ is commonplace, he came up with the idea of putting ‘HUH’ (how’s ur head?) on a hoodie and that’s how the brand was born.
Since being set up over two years ago, HUH clothing has donated over €30,000 to various mental health charities in Ireland and the USA and is selling a range of hoodies, gillets, and hats on their website www.huhclothing.com
“The goal of HUH clothing is to spark casual conversations about your mental health through something as simple as a hoodie or a t-shirt. We want people to ask, what does HUH mean? Mental health conversations need to be normalised and need to happen on a daily and weekly basis, with yourself, your loved ones, friends, family and co-workers,” comments Mark.
