I received the most wonderful Mother’s Day gifts from my family. Beautiful jewelry from BeCause that provided 66 school meals for children. Sixty-six meals! That’s incredible!
(She even included a note from my boys…so perfect!)
(Let’s just focus on the earrings, and how these provided 33 school meals through WFP, and not my eye wrinkles…)
”After I had been with WFP USA for a few months, I thought that there might be a way to merge two of my passions–handmade jewelry and giving back. I started brainstorming and came up with the idea of BeCause. With lots of help and support from my friends and family, I launched my Etsy page (www.etsy.com/shop/smanthey) in November 2012 and then officially launched BeCause in December with a Trunk Show.
With each sale, I donate 15% of the proceeds to fund WFP USA. I translate each purchase into the amount of school meals that it would provide to give my customers a lasting understanding of the real difference they are helping to make. As of April 23, 2013, BeCause has provided 1,691 school meals! This number gives me hope that every piece sold makes a difference because it means another few meals that we can provide–another future we can brighten.”
