When it comes to seeing beautiful, one of the most wonderful parts of what we get to do is raise awareness for, and donate to, wonderful non-profit organizations. This month's non-profit leaves us seeing beautiful in so many ways! 
Why Girls With Sole?
Spend 10 minutes conversing with Founder, Liz Ferro, and you'll be inspired  - your soul will be moved (pun intended). The non-profit organization grow from Liz Ferro's own life experiences. Her commitment to empowering young girls to grow their inner strength and literally "see beautiful" during difficult times is drawn from her own childhood growing up in foster homes and experiencing abuse.

Liz writes, "Girls With Sole programming has been a community collaborative effort from the very start. We partner with social service agencies, schools, hospitals, juvenile attention facilities, and residential treatment centers to bring free fitness and wellness programs to the girls where they are. A few of our program partners include: The Cleveland Rape Crisis Center; Boys and Girls Club of Lorain; The Intergenerational School; Merrick House; MetroHealth; Bellefaire JCB; and the Multi-County Juvenile Attention System."

By providing a safe physical environment for girls to thrive withing, they can expend negative engery in a positive way through mind, body and spirit. At This movement is captured in the acronym LULA, meaning “Lacing Up for a Lifetime of Achievement.” Reinforcing the understanding that nothing in life is impossible. And that, friends, is truly beautiful.
How does Girls With Sole see & create more beautiful? They are:
  • committed to empowering young girls to design a life full of beauty and confidence;
  • offering weekly programs designed to equip girls with tools needed to see and create beautiful in their own lives;
  • providing each girl a free pair of running shoes, sports bra, fitness journal, water bottle, and free entry into the road races they participate in; and
  • continuing education focused on wellness programs to girls from coast to coast who want to "Lace Up for a Lifetime of Achievement."
Let's LULA people!
How will See Beautiful support Girls With Sole?   Great question! See Beautiful™ will donate 20% of every product SALE (not proceeds, but the ENTIRE SALE) to Girls With Sole throughout the month!
