August Brings SO Much Beautiful!

While admittedly searching for where the first seven months of 2011 have gone, we're thrilled to dive into August to unveil the non-profit who will receive a portion of proceeds from every See Beautiful product purchased, as well as, announce our See Beautiful's for the month! Let's get started seeing beautiful:

 With every purchase, See Beautiful will donate a portion of proceeds to CARE®

CARE® is on the ground working tirelessly in these countries. They have reached more than 1 million people across Somalia, Ethiopia and Kenya with humanitarian assistance, and "doubled their initial emergency appeal to scale up our response to provide food, water and emergency supplies to a total of 2 million people affected by the emergency in the three countries" (CARE®, 2011). Some staggering statistics outlined in CARE's press room related to their work:
  • "In Somalia, CARE has assisted 164,000 people with drought relief activities and cash interventions to help families buy food, and we are scaling up our response to help as many people as possible.
  • Across the border in Kenya at the Dadaab refugee camps, where more than 61,000 Somalis have sought safe haven in the past six months, CARE is the primary distributor of food, water and primary education for the 380,000 refugees currently living there, most of them Somalis.More than 1,500 people are arriving each day, and CARE is working with partners to scale up our response. CARE will provide food, water and emergency assistance in the newly-opened Ifo II camp, which will provide safe shelter to an additional 40,000 refugees. CARE also is responding to the drought in northeastern Kenya.
  • In Ethiopia, CARE has helped 241,587 people with food and nutrition assistance, nutrition, water and sanitation interventions such as water point rehabilitation, distribution of water treatment chemicals and hygiene promotion as well as livestock intervention comprising of slaughter destocking, animal feed and support to zonal animal health authorities" (CARE, 2011) 
Additionally, CARE® focuses their humanitarian efforts on women and children, largely underrepresented in humanitarian efforts.

See Beautiful is committed to helping others see beautiful and understanding the immediate need for assistance in these countries, we can't think of a better place to be sending a portion of proceeds from every one of our sales.

  1. CARE really seems like a phenomenal organization. Thanks for sharing them with us. Also, I LOVE the new See Beautifuls - especially Sami Yusuf.

  2. It's amazing to me that we do so much genetic engineering to provide affordable food to everyone yet there are people/children starving all over the world. I'm glad there's organizations like CARE who do care.

    By the way, I visited the August feature and I love all of them, especially the adult book. It's message speaks to me, especially right now when I'm doing everything I can to help my teenage sister see herself as beautiful.

  3. i am proud to live in a country, that after the horrible events that effected everybody, the joy of giving ( and the beauty of it ) har olny increased : )


Thank you for sharing your thoughts & helping others see beautiful too!
