Real Beauty “starts with being beautiful on the inside.”
In celebration of Women’s Equality Day on August 26th, Women’s Bean Project has teamed up with Colorado-based, natural skin care company MyChelle Dermaceuticals. MyChelle’s vision for changing women (and girls) lives by inspiring, encouraging and empowering them in their pursuit of personal definition of true beauty and to live their best, fits right in line with Women’s Bean Project’s mission and guiding principles.
We help women help themselves. We provide opportunities for our program participants to discover their talents and develop skills to join the workforce and build a better life.
We strive to “do well by doing good.” We are a social enterprise that believes it is a basic human right to live a stable, healthy life. We serve our supporters, partners, participants and communities by delivering quality products with innovation and efficiency.
Our efforts transform more than the individual woman. The seeds of hope in one woman weave threads of success that expand to families and communities with a reach that touches individuals worldwide. From program participants and vendors to customers, donors and volunteers, their transformations make a difference.
Using the tools we provide, women are empowered to change their lives. Our supporters are empowered with the knowledge that they have contributed, not only to the self-worth and self-sufficiency of disadvantaged women, but also to the broad-reaching benefits our communities reap.
Instead of a one-time handout, women acquire the tools needed to sustain themselves and their families for a lifetime. We believe in nurturing economic sustainability for our program participants and partners, being ever-mindful of our impact on the environment.
MyChelle will be offering 25% off on all items site-wide at MyChelle.com on Monday, August 26th and you’ll also receive a FREE bag of Toni’s 10 Bean Soup from Women’s Bean Project for the first 150 orders! 5% of all profits from the day’s sales will go directly to Women’s Bean Project, in the effort to help us continue building stepping stones to self-sufficiency for the chronically unemployed and impoverished women we serve.
“I think outside beauty starts with being beautiful on the inside. Having a positive outlook in life can be seen through our expressions, our smiles, our actions, and being thankful and kind to others makes us more beautiful and attractive on the outside. When we are happy with ourselves we are more likely to take better care of ourselves. A good moisturizer doesn’t hurt either : ) Make sure to drink plenty of water, exercise as often as you can, and wear sunscreen. Just remember that the better you feel about yourself, the more beautiful you are! ”
~ Blythe Cosper, MyChelle customer
“I have been held back in the past by a negative attitude, low self-esteem, insecurity and feeling unloved. The Bean Project is helping me get to work, open up and talk about my feelings, find a place to live and is teaching me job skills. This program and what it stands for is helping me come out of my shell and I want other women to receive the help I’m receiving so they can better their lives.”
