Escape Adulthood is a movement and a rallying cry. It’s not about escaping responsibilities or reality. Nor is it about paying your bills with Monopoly money, eating a strict diet of chicken nuggets, or putzing around with Play-Doh all day long (although we do love that smell!).
Rather, the “Adulthood” we recommend you escape from is the cynical, joyless, unadventurous version with all the stupid rules, the one that insists we always play it safe and take ourselves way too seriously. We actually believe the crazy notion that there is more to life than the busyness, stress, and melancholy that is typical of most modern lives.
Our mission is to annihilate Adultitis.
That includes working with organizations to deliver speaking programs that drive innovation, prevent burnout, and achieve new levels of productivity. We also develop tools and make things to help individuals design lives that are less stressful and more fun. Everything is fueled by Jason’s whimsical artwork and it all began with a humble comic strip. (Download the amazing technicolor Escape Adulthood Brand Book for a more in-depth tour.)
We are all about helping grown-ups of all ages to escape adulthood, but we are über passionate about making sure that the awesome, magical, and happy version of childhood we champion is never lost. That’s why we pledge 3% of all gross merchandise sales to six organizations that help improve the lives of kids all over the world.
