Over the past 24 hours, I have been filled with such a tremendous feeling of hopefulness and excitement.
In every state of the U.S. and across the world—even in Antarctica—women of all ages & backgrounds were standing tall yesterday. Speaking out. Feeling proud of who they are.
With a multitude of voices, they spoke one fundamental truth: no one is alone. We are, each of us, connected to one another. We each have worth. And dignity. And value.
And we are capable of rising ever higher when we lift each other up.
Handcrafted HoneyBee is dedicated to inspiring girls to Dream Big & grow into who they want to be. That takes many forms, from the encouraging words we include in our skin care kits to the lessons we infuse into this fun activity.
But the next generation of women needs more than encouraging words. They need us to take action.
To help them build a better world tomorrow by living into our best selves today. To use the gifts we have and work from where we are, in order to give them the opportunity to pursue their own dreams.
Over the past year, we have worked hard to help girls with big dreams to develop smart skills.
We've provided resources and information on our HoneyBee Heroine Secret Page. We've profiled real-life HoneyBee Heroines and shared their tips and advice for success. We've even interviewed an inspiring set of adultHoneyBee Mentors.
But now, it's time for our business to take more direct action. We have been lifted up by the support & purchases of so many amazing customers. And we can do so much to lift others up as well.
That's why a portion of our profits are donated to an organization that supports girls' education. Every season, we'll introduce you to a new group that's making a difference in girls' lives.
And you'll be making a difference too. Whether you purchase a Handcrafted HoneyBee product on our website, at a craft show, or at your local store, you can be proud to know that you'll be helping to support an amazing girls' organization.
