This has been in the works for a long time. I am super stoked to finally say that Bars by Becca can begin to give back! I have decided that with each new menu launch or roughly every 2 months, Bars by Becca will pick a deserving organization and donate a portion of the sales for that time period. What does this mean? Well, for now and this will probably constantly evolve; with every 10 bars sold Bars by Becca will give $5 to the organization of the period. The more soap sold, the more the organization will receive (oh, and there is totally no limit!).
This month I selected an organization recommended to me by several of my clients, the Semper Fi Fund (https://semperfifund.org). Throughout my husband’s career in the Marine Corps, I’ve heard mention of the Semper Fi Fund but until recently I haven’t delved into what it is that they do. If you know me then you know that I really love the Marine Corps and can thus spout off any numerous organizations and their awesomeness. I must say that the Semper Fi Fund has now taken top spot!
The below is all taken from their website…
"The Semper Fi Fund and America’s Fund, provide immediate financial assistance and lifetime support to post-9/11 wounded, critically ill and injured members of all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces, and their families, ensuring that they have the resources they need during their recovery and transition back to their communities. Since establishing the Semper Fi Fund in 2004, we’ve issued more than 108,000 grants, totaling more than $125 million in assistance to over 15,900 of our heroes and their families.”
Did I mention that Marine Corps spouses founded the Semper Fi Fund? I often say that there are very few people with the same level of dedication in their chosen way of life to their fellow spouses and their families than military spouses. If not for the help of so many of my fellow Marine spouses, Bars by Becca wouldn’t be here. Seriously, you all are so inspirational!
Ok, so back to the Semper Fi Fund, this is the awesome part. At the Semper Fi Fund, an average 96% of the profits go back to those in need. In simple terms, for every $1 raised, 96 cents goes to help someone. Also, they are one of only 3 veteran non-profits to receive an A+ rating from Charity Watch. That fact alone is amazing (especially in light of the recent news surrounding many non-profits out there).
Beginning the giving back phase of Bars by Becca is just another reason you can feel good about getting clean naturally. Not only are you doing something awesome for your largest and porous organ (your skin) you are giving back to someone that selflessly gave so much! Please check out the Semper Fi Fund (https://semperfifund.org). Until then, keep on keeping on and HAPPY BATHING!
