Giving back to the communities I am part of is an important aspect of my life, in both personal and professional terms. My business is an extension of my lifestyle. I make products that I love using, and I enjoy sharing both my products and my philanthropy with others.
A portion of the proceeds from each collection will be donated to organizations that have made an impact on my life. 10% of all proceeds from the Apothecary and Aromatherapy Collections sales will be donated to the National Alliance on Mental Illness. 10% of all proceeds from the Survival Collection will be donated to the Lone Survivor Foundation. During the month of October 10% of all proceeds will be donated to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
Here is why…
The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) is an important organization that works to eliminate the stigma surrounding mental illnesses and provide support and advocacy for care. Their work includes education, advocacy, listening to individuals, and leading public awareness events. I have family and friends who suffer from mental health issues, such as anxiety and depression. I myself have two mental health conditions. It is nothing to be ashamed of. It is nothing to hide from. With the help of NAMI, we can open a conversation surrounding mental well-being and work together to lift the embarrassment that so often accompanies a mental illness.

The Lone Survivor Foundation is close to my heart because not only am I very proud to be an American, I am also beyond grateful and appreciative to those who sacrifice absolutely everything to protect our freedom and our borders. A few friends and family members are currently serving, or have previously served, in various military branches or with the Coast Guard. The mission statement of this organization reads: “The Lone Survivor Foundation restores, empowers, and renews hope for our wounded service members and their families through health, wellness, and therapeutic support.” This is one organization I am proud to support and proud to share with you, my customers.

Ever since I was a little girl, the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Research Foundation has been close to my heart. I have supported many friends and families in fundraiser walks and I have personally known women who have suffered from breast cancer. This organization is one of my preferred breast cancer charities and I am happy to donate 10% of all proceeds to Susan G. Komen during the month of October. Southern Belle Products will also have special items for sale during the month of October to further support this cause. To learn more about this organization, click here: www.komen.org -- In October, donations will switch to the Susan G. Komen Foundation for the entire month!
Since May, Southern Belle Products has contributed the following:
Lone Survivor: $36.28
It may not seem like big numbers, but please remember that a little can go a long way. Every dollar counts. By supporting my small business, you are also supporting these three great charities. Thank you. We do accept donations in lieu of a purchase, however your donation will be made in my company, Southern Belle Products’, name.
