How many of you donate to charities or a cause that you’re passionate about?
How many of you WANT to donate a percentage of sales or profits to your favorite cause, but aren’t sure where to begin?
Raise those hands, designers! I know you’re out there!
Adding an aspect of Philanthropy into your business is a huge aspirational goal for so many designers.
So, on today’s episode I’m going to share with you how I’ve done this in my jewelry biz and some tips to help you get there too!
For years, I’ve donated to causes or raised money for charity via my business, but just recently I’ve taken on my most ambitious project yet.
One of my biggest passions is education (I know, shocker!) and when I was younger, I struggled to put myself through the last two years of college.
But it was a super important life goal of mine to finish school. So, I worked really hard to get through it and even started Flourish & Thrive Academy because there was a lack of specific business education for jewelry designers and makers!
Fast Forward…when my mentor, Ryan, told me about building a school in Kenya with World Teacher Aid, I just had to say “YES”!
(Here is a photo with Ryan, Stu, and the Mastermind Team that is building the school in Kenya).
To make it even better, absolutely ALL of the money raised goes directly towards the school because I am actually going to Africa to help build it!
… OK, I know many of you give your time, energy, and money to organizations and causes you care about, so let’s dive right into this podcast and get you on track to using your jewelry biz as amazing fundraising platform!
Here we go!
