Adelphie Customers Have Generous Hearts!
March 25, 2014
This first blog is a “Thank You” to our customers who have kindly supported Adelphie Natural Skin Care. When we started Adelphie Natural Skin Care our first discussions were about what kind of company we wanted to be, what guiding values we wanted to follow and whether these values would line up with what customers were looking for? (See “Philosophy”). We knew our products would be natural and chemical free so while the product side of Adelphie would be ‘good for you and the planet’, we also wanted to contribute to economic development in the third world.
“Adelphie” is Greek and means “Beautiful or Dear Sister”. We are told people with this name have a deep inner desire for love and companionship, and want to work with others to achieve peace and harmony. How Cool is that? Perfect alignment with our desire to contribute part of our profits to third world development and help “Sisters in Need” wherever they are. Adelphie Natural Skin Care supports CARE Canada (www.care.ca) and its work to fight poverty by empowering the world's greatest agents for change: women and girls. As part of the Adelphie community, you help a sister in need in the third world every time you purchase Adelphie Natural Skin Care products. Here’s why Care Canada focuses their effort toward women and girls in mostly third world countries:
Women and girls are disproportionately affected by poverty and discrimination. Girls face the greatest risk, as they often have no choice but to leave school to help their family earn money, find food, look after younger siblings, collect water, and run the household while their parents work.
Women and girls are an important part of the solutions to overcome poverty. Women tend to transfer improvements in their own lives into the lives of their children, families and communities. To ensure this happens, Care promotes savings and provides women with small loans so they can turn their talents into businesses to support themselves and their families.
Some great facts to consider:
When women earn an income, they reinvest 90 percent of it in their families
For every year a girl spends in school she raises her family income by up to 20 percent
Educated girls grow into educated women, who have healthier babies and are more likely to educate their children
When a girl in the developing world receives seven years of education, she marries four years later and has 2.2 fewer children
Engaging men, boys, girls, and women can transform gender roles and increase gender equality.”
Last year Adelphie raised $400 for Care Canada with the help of our wonderful customers. By choosing healthy natural products from Adelphie Natural Skin you have easily and effortlessly raised this money to help our “sisters in need in third world countries”.
Thank you again for your continued support of this very worthwhile cause, and for choosing Adelphie Natural Skin Care to take care of yourselves. With your help we hope to do much more in 2014! If you love your Adelphie products, please refer and recommend to help us achieve this goal.
