I am finally getting back to reality. The holidays were a whirlwind of fun but now it’s time to make 2017 the BEST YEAR EVER!
Thanks to your input (yes I have been listening) I will be launching several new facets to the blog over the next year! Keep leaving comments, messaging me and giving feedback I want to hear everything you have to say!
The first of the 2017 reveals is a new section of the blog called “Something to Feel Good About” which will highlight products and companies that Give Back either to their community or charities, are organic or sustainable and generally make you feel really good about your purchase! We can all use something to feel good about right?!
Kicking it off is a fantastic company that is making the world a little more beautiful: Glow for a Cause.
GLOW for a Cause is a beauty company unlike any other. What started out as a quest to create the purest and highest quality body care products and soy candles has evolved into a glowing movement. Founded by artist, teacher, and skincare productista, Johanna Querry Smith, GLOW for a cause is a passion project that makes both people and the world feel good. Made from only the finest and purest ingredients available, every time you buy a GLOW for a cause product, you are not only pampering yourself, you are giving back 5% to one of their partner non-profit organizations including:
Cowgirls vs. Cancer which provides retreat scholarships for women with breast cancer to experience healing with horses and yoga in Montana. http://cowgirlyoga.com
Boston Firefighter’s Burn Foundation which is comprised of Boston firefighters who volunteer their time to provide emotional and financial support to burn victims and their families. http://bostonfirefightersburnfoundation.com
The Red Sox Foundation provides tutoring, mentoring, enrichment programs and college scholarships to academically talented but economically disadvantaged students through their Red Sox Scholars Program. http://redsoxfoundation.org
MaxFund Animal Adoption Center is a true no kill animal shelter in Colorado, giving animals, including the injured, abandoned and abused, a second chance at life. http://maxfund.org
The Gathering Place is Denver’s only drop-in center and community of hope for women, children and transgender individuals who are experiencing homelessness or poverty. http://tgpdenver.org
Berni’s Journey is a cinematic quest that serves as a mirror for us to reflect on universal themes of happiness, hope, and living authentically. Answer the call of adventure and become the hero of your own story. http://www.bernisjourney.com
GLOW for a Cause offers a variety of high quality, natural bath & body products including perfume oils & solids, body butters, soaking salts, facial treatments, lip balm, and baby products and every purchase is one to feel good about.
I am in LOVE with their Wish Body Butter which Johanna describes as “A magical blend of sparkling light florals, white tea, and bergamot grounded by light musks”.
This super hydrating body butter is packed full of nature’s best moisturizing oils such as coconut, jojoba, sunflower and vitamin E, hydrates and protects the skin PLUS it’s Paraben Free, Phthalate Free, Cruelty Free, Gluten Free and Made in the USA!
I love hearing about great products that give back. I’ll have to try this out – thanks for sharing 🙂
I can’t wait to share more- there are so many fantastically wonderful companies out there doing good work!
Love this type of stuff..I feel like since I don’t buy things that often when I do I should be more conscious of the brand actually giving back! Gotta check it out! xo C
