The Amor umbrella Logo has a few meanings and symbolism in it:
The first is the word umbrella originates from the Latin term ‘umbra’, which means taking shelter from the elements.
The umbrella as a shelter stands for unity. Those who are experiencing hardship are brought in under the umbrella to shelter them from the storm and gives them HOPE.
The second is the heart shape is the universal symbol for love and it represents the strong bond we developed while serving and that it extends beyond well after serving.
The third one is the word Spanish word AMOR (LOVE) that means universal love for all the people and things that we love. It also celebrates the diversity makeup of our company and our military forces as one of our biggest assets. Because when diverse people unite in a common Mission it results in a powerful and more effective force that become agents of change.
The last one is that when you unite the words, the symbols and the meanings of both AMOR + umbrella, it stand for Hope.
Just any umbrella means shelter from rain, but when you combine shelter in a red heart shape you also bring smiles, love and hope to your surrounding, environment, world and universe. AMOR is about celebrating our diversity and finding ways to love the moments, to stay present and keep on finding HOPE.
Our Veteran Initiatives
What started as an entrepreneurial class project, it became a mission that lead to several initiatives like the One Year+ quest to represent, the often overlooked, cultural diversity and rich heritage of 2M+ Veteran Women in the US.
Help us make it a movement and create awareness about the challenges of transitioning into civilian lives.
We are committed to making a positive impact in the lives of veterans in the U.S with AMOR umbrella.

How do We Help?
The Veteran Outreach approach.
We found that misinformation of available resources was and still is an issue for active military and veterans alike, so often in the dark of where to go for that much needed help.
We help correct the gap by launching a Veteran Focus TV show named Umbrella of Hope TV (UHTV) that highlight those organizations and individuals that provide those resources and by personally curating the content and the accuracy of the information and resources shared.

AMOR Umbrella represents transforming an ordinary product into something extraordinary by helping you capture the perfect experience into a treasured memory. It will not be forgotten!!!
