Together, we did it. Thank you!!!
As you probably already know, every quarter we commit to donating to a special organizaton that helps educate and empower.
But this quarter, we decided to do something extra special: split our donation between a STEM scholarship (funded by a portion of all SmartGirl Kit sales) and a donation of 400 free aluminum-free SmartyPits samples to attendees of MD Anderson's Survivorship Conference (funded by a portion of all SmartyPits sales).
This past week, attendees from all over the country came together at MD Anderson, one of the leading cancer research hospitals in the world.
They connected with other survivors, caregivers, and each other; they attended breakout sessions with topics like dealing with cancer fatigue and skin safety; and every single one of them also got a chance to try SmartyPits…thanks to your purchases this quarter.
Committing to an aluminum-free deodorant is important for everyone, but I'm especially passionate about helping people who have been affected by breast cancer or Alzheimer's Disease, two of the diseases that have been linked to aluminum levels in the body.
And it wasn't just The Handcrafted HoneyBee Co. that made this donation. It was you too.
A donation of this size is still a significant financial investment for a business of our size, and I'm so grateful for every single SmartyPits purchase this quarter that helped make it possible.
On behalf of our team as well as our partners over at MD Anderson, thank you.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Together, we are helping people everywhere make the choice to #goaluminumfree, and I couldn't be more honored to be a part of that movement.
PS...don't forget that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month! We'll be releasing a special scent and donating all proceeds from those sales to City of Hope's Breast Cancer Program. Be on the lookout for more info in a couple of weeks!
