As Mother’s Day approaches, we’d like to encourage you to get that special woman in your life a gift that makes a difference. Consider Stella & Dot’s Foundation bracelet. The proceeds of these bracelets go to three nonprofits that support women and children through education and economic empowerment.
Over the past nine months, the company’s 18,000 stylists have raised over $80,000 for buildOn through their bracelets, all of which is going to fund schools in Nicaragua – they almost have enough for three full buildOn schools! Last month we told you about Shaina Haller’s goal to become the top-selling stylist in the fundraiser and win the trip to a buildOn construction site in Nicaragua. Well, she’s going and taking her husband with her to help us build! She ended up raising $2,969. Elizabeth Spivey from South Carolina came in second place and will also accompany Stella & Dot’s CEO Jessica Herrin on their trip in August.
We encourage you to visit Stella & Dot’s website. Remember, there’s only two business days left to shop!
