Our mothers teach us countless lessons, big and small, throughout our lifetimes that shape our beliefs and habits. And there are two in particular that usually stick with us for the rest of our lives: lessons in beauty and lessons in giving.
As young girls, many of us have watched them in awe as they powdered their faces and infused bright reds to their lips, and listened carefully as they taught us the importance of cleansing our faces every night and wearing sunscreen. And for many of us, generosity was a value adopted from our mothers simply by watching them give and give to others without expecting anything in return.
This Mother’s Day, we want to honor all moms, who were the first to teach us the concepts of beauty, self-care and helping others. And as we acknowledge the matriarchs all around the world, we thought it’d be a great time to highlight the ways in which our mothers’ inspirations have materialized at Luxe Botanics.
Every time any Luxe Botanics product is sold, you help another community, another family and another person. Through the Buy1Give1 (B1G1) nonprofit organization, which allows small businesses to simply incorporate giving activities in our everyday business operations, we support the communities that harvest and process our core botanicals, Marula, Camu Camu and Kigelia. We are proud to be a part of a global business community that’s collectively effecting positive change in our world through its philosophy of Buy1Give1.
Learn a little bit more about the impact you help make every time you treat your skin with Luxe Botanics. We believe small steps make a big difference!
When you purchase anything from the Marula range to firm and hydrate your skin, you help New Ways provide a decent education to a child in Kenya by covering the costs for educational materials, such as books, uniforms and shoes. These resources help children become feel comfortable and more excited about attending school, and incentivize them to focus better during lessons. This means they’ll have a higher chance of succeeding, and ultimately help them prosper later in life.
When you purchase anything from the Camu Camu range to brighten your skin, you help New Ways provide a nutritious meal to an Ethiopian nursery-school child for one day. The first few years of a child’s life is one of the most critical, and proper nourishment is especially vital during these early stages in order for children to develop into a mentally and physically strong human beings.
When you purchase anything from the Kigelia range to clarify, soothe and uplift your skin, you help the Microloan Foundation Australia provide a one-day business training course to a disadvantaged entrepreneur in Malawi. The course helps women establish and sustain their businesses by teaching financial literacy skills, something many impoverished women lack in order to succeed in their businesses and ultimately provide for her family.
When you purchase a Discovery Kit, you help So They Can provide textbooks and exercise books to a child in Kenya. Reading is one of the most important ways to help a child grow and expand her horizons. By increasing the opportunities to read for these children, we help them to become well-educated and primed for a better future.
Thank you moms for all your wisdom. Happy Mother’s Day!
