Thank you for helping us make a difference.
‘Tis the season… the time of year that reminds us to be grateful for living in a great country, for the opportunity to make products we are proud of, and for being able to provide living-wage American jobs for the men and women who make up our BGREEN Family. It also reminds us that there are those of us less fortunate, right here in our own community.
So, when Sica Schmitz from Bead & Reel called us to purchase underwear (out of her own pocket) for a group of women graduating from a 12-week program transitioning from homelessness back into the workforce, we were both humbled and delighted to be able to help. We were able to donate a week’s worth of panties to every woman in the program, and offered to continue supporting her graduating classes in 2017.
For the past several months, we have been working behind the scenes, raising money to generate badly needed clothing donations for LA’s vast homeless population. In addition to collaborating with Sica on her program, we will soon be announcing a new effort with a wider reach, with the goal of giving clothes to every homeless person in Los Angeles county.
Getting involved in social causes has been stitched in our DNA since our inception. We’re proud to have been involved in many philanthropic projects, ranging from building a local community garden in Central LA, to helping raise money for a new school building in Haiti.
The truth is, it’s all of YOU that help us make a difference… we couldn’t do it without you. So, from the bottom of our collective hearts, THANK YOU for supporting our mission to produce quality organic products, reduce our impact on the environment, create American jobs, and help out families and communities alike.
We can’t wait to have more stories like this to share with you very soon.
With Love & Gratitude,
The BGREEN Team
