Kakenya's Dream

When we named Givology our non-profit of the month for December we had no idea how much they would inspire us. On their website they have explained what they'll be doing with the portion of sales from every See Beautiful product we donate to them.

From Joyce Meng & Givology:
"We’re incredibly honored to be chosen as See Beautiful’s December 2011 featured non-profit! For this month, a portion of the profits go to us, so any holiday purchase you make goes towards helping our students and projects! In addition to being beautiful gifts, all products are either handmade, hand-pressed, organic, recycled and/or fair trade. (As for myself, I’m partial to the aluminum cuff bracelet.)

When we first heard about See Beautiful, the mission of the organization really resonated with us, especially since we strongly champion girls’ education and empowerment. As we’re all constantly inundated by advertisements and media portrayals of beauty ought to be, it’s really great that See Beautiful helps girls and women see the beauty they inherently possess. As a movement, See Beautiful hopes to counter-act pop culture to embrace individuality and the beauty of being oneself.

Check out See Beautiful’s website and browse their products!

We decided that in the spirit of See Beautiful’s mission, 100% of the profits that we receive from their sales will go to Kakenya’s School for Excellence. Kakenya endured much hardship to start her own school for girls – to help them find a better life for themselves and discover their own self-worth."

Please watch Kakenya's video that describes the wonderful work she's doing. And if you haven't finished your holiday shopping for all the girls and women in your life, pop on over to our products and feel empowered knowing who a portion of sales are supporting!

P.S., We have already reached out to Kakenya herself to see how we can continue supporting her dream as well. Lots of seeing beautiful here!!
