Inspire BIG for Jax

Meet Jax. He's amazing. Jax's family and friends resoundingly share how at 7 months old, he INSPIRES in BIG ways! Jax's parents see beautiful in the ways they're empowering Jax to live a life full of creating beautiful as well!! They could use some love from this amazing See Beautiful Community too. To help cover medical costs for sweet Jax, we're introducing our "INSPIRE BIG" bracelet to support his family. Jax has a disease called Niemann-Pick type A. The disease is rare and there is little information or research being conducted on it and no one has survived it yet. But there's Jax and he smiles and gives love and he INSPIRES, BIG TIME!

Jax

 This is a limited edition, hand-stamped, INSPIRE BIG Cuff, inspired by sweet Jax to whom we donated during his Go Shout Love Auction month! The full cuff is 100% recycled aluminum and is hand-stamped with the saying, "INSPIRE BIG."


 It is an honor to get to be in a position where we can INSPIRE his family and shower them with love right now. When you wear your INSPIRE BIG Cuff the sky is the limit and the world is your oyster. We're learning that from a precious seven-month-old who shows it everyday.

You also have the option to select our original "See Beautiful" cuff and other giving products. Just select "FOR JAX" from the dropdown box and $5 of that purchase will be donated to Jax's family too. Our goal is to raise $1,000 for the family. I have no doubt we can do it.
Seeing Beautiful in Jax.

You receive the invitation every morning to live a life of complete presence. A life of love and kindness and generosity. It doesn't come in a golden envelope. It arrives by a tiny turn of the earth's axis (which is way cooler than an envelope or evite) and the chirping of birds, and maybe even the wafting smell of coffee brewing. It's your personalized invitation to love this moment, this beautiful day, this gift of life for one more day.

You've been invited. Please RSVP below if you'd like to join us in seeing beautiful and creating beautiful today. It's going to be amazing.

Pretty vs Beautiful

What do you see when you look in the mirror? Does the reflection staring back at you beg you to gaze at, and critique feature after feature after imperfection after wrinkle, after baggy eyes? Pause for a moment and take in the reflection staring back at you.

Take another moment and ponder this: Why do you think the things you do when you look in the mirror? Where did you learn to judge?

If you're staring into the mirror and critiquing, or putting down, the image staring back at you, there's a good chance that society is running a wheel house in your mind - a valuable one that on the contrary has the potential to lift your spirits and impart beautiful in your life everyday. If society IS indeed running the hamster wheel of doubt in your mind, don't worry, you can retire that wheel and take back the thinking space that is rightfully yours.

Here's the deal, there is a difference between pretty and beautiful and there's a difference between society's garbage and your mind space. Invite yourself to this party to see beautiful. Take a moment to remember that your body (the one you're so busy critiquing), is a vessel of transportation for the true gift you really are. Take care of your vessel and appreciate it, but don't beat it up because it doesn't fit the airbrushed image of a billboard face staring back at you. See past the societal ads and into the beauty you possess and your ability to use that to create more beautiful in the world. YOU get to decide upon and celebrate your beauty and your impact.

How beautiful that you write your own life by the perspective and perception you use?! Ultimately, it's up to you to decide between good/bad, ugly/beautiful, happy/sad, frumpy/skinny, etc. and you deserve to be kind to yourself and those around you. Celebrate your beauty and strength in infinite ways. Fire the space of society's hamster wheel in your mind and try treating yourself with worth and love and kindness and patience - the stuff of life you gift to others.

And when you graze past a mirror and start to play with the words "pretty" "not enough" "judging" "needing" or "changing," try this on for size: You are beautiful. You are loved and you are so worthy of being loved. You make this world a better place by being in it. There are so many who are thankful for you.

Happy seeing beautiful.

Give the Gift of Water

You can help create beautiful by bringing clean running water to a School village in the rural area of Loitokitok, Kenya and help empower young girls who spend 6 hours per day walking to fetch water.  Currently, children must leave school to fetch water during the school day and also fill buckets for their home life. The young girls are walking to a dangerous water tank and climbing the tank to capture the water. The tank top is covered with rusty metal  (see photo to the below) and children are leaning over this to get to the water.

Hygiene and sanitation cannot  currently be practiced at the school; the rest rooms are not hooked up because of lack of water. The sinks are not in use because there is no running water. Six hours per day are spent collecting water.

How Global is working to bring clean water direct  to the school  grounds  to 300 school children and surrounding community members by  installing   a solar pump and holding tanks along with setting up a hand washing station.


Picture
Once the pump is installed, there will need to be holding tanks put into place. The tanks will need to be placed up high to create pressure and water will be pumped into the tanks and a faucet included so that the children can have water that pours safely into their buckets. The pipes will then be extended to the rest rooms, showers and sinks in the property and the flowing water will then be tested and approved by the health department.
 
How Your Purchase Helps: $5 from every one of our Giving Products will be donated to How Global when you select this organization from the dropdown box. Get to shopping and give the gift of clean water HERE.
