What is the mission for your businesses’ giving: Our mission is to give back to organizations that support women, children, the arts and, our community.
How do you give back to society through your business: We give back with our time and the services we provide through those donation. We support a number of organizations but contributing our time and services to those that support and empower women and girls are particularly important. We donate as much as we can – especially when we have the opportunity to directly impact someone, like those opportunities with Make a Wish and Teen Prom for the Cancer Support Community.
Charity or Charities of choice: We really LOVE Suns88, we’re members and the work we get to do and time that members put in to make the community a better place is awesome and makes a difference, we’ve seen it firsthand. We’re so blessed to have the opportunity to meet and know so many people who make giving back such a cornerstone in their lives. Make a wish is also amazing… we’ve had the opportunity to grant a couple wishes and feel so blessed to be to play a small part in brightening someone’s day. Giving back is coo and in a world that can often times feel cruel if you have an opportunity to do something to help someone and lift them up - even in the smallest way, do it.
Why have you supported these causes: It’s our responsibility as humans to give back, so we do.
Favorite business based on their giving efforts and why: Locally, Addison Taylor Fine Jewelry- Tree of Life Movement, we love a fashionable give back. We also LOVE FEED Projects
Who influenced your spirit of giving and how: We were both fortunate enough to be raised in families where the spirit of service and community were important and emphasized.
How do you believe fashion can aid philanthropy: Anything that can bring awareness to a worthy cause by bringing influential individuals together to support a cause and engage people is amazing - - Feed, is a favorite because the connect their customer to a cause, one bag at a time. LOVE!
What is your biggest philanthropic accomplishment: Teen Prom with Cancer Support Community Center …whenever we get a chance to step in and be fairy glam mothers is really special. Seeing someone escape their reality for just a moment and forget about the chemo, hair falling out, missing eyebrows, absent lashes and just feel pampered --to see herself as “beautiful”- it really puts the purpose in what we do in perspective. For so many it’s not just makeup --it really does change the way someone views themselves and that really powerful. Having opportunities like that, that allow us to participate in a small way and brighten what can feel dark and scary is really impactful. We’re really fortunate to lend a hand and bring a smile to someone’s face.
