The countdown is on folks!!! Our @BeautyForFreedom site is launching in 14 hours and counting!!!!
Thanks so much @jjmgi for our gorgeous new site!
Human trafficking might not be on our front door, but it is definitely in our backyard.
We believe that raising awareness with an exciting new organization is a key component to fighting this global crisis that lurks in the shadows. With increased efforts by influential foundations we believe the fight against human trafficking is progressing in the right direction. Beauty for Freedom presents a new set of tools to combat this problem by offering a new method of donations from a greater audience.
THE BEAUTY FOR FREEDOM PLATFORM
Our vision is to create an innovative sustainable platform to streamline donations to charitable foundations battling against human trafficking. By incorporating this platform into members’ daily lives, they will be able to contribute by obtaining services they would have received anyways. The key is to understand that this is not a onetime donation, but rather a donation made each time a member visits a provider offered by the Beauty for Freedom platform. There are three key components to the organization. The Beauty for Freedom platform will serve as component A, a link between components B and C. Component B consists of registered members who will be receiving discounted and VIP treatments from component C, the providers. Beauty for Freedom will partner with providers offering varying services and products (ie. cosmetic, beauty etc…). These providers will offer the services at discounted rates to all Beauty for Freedom members, and will furthermore donate a percentage of proceeds to the Beauty for Freedom organization. Beauty for Freedom will then use these donations to provide grants for charitable foundations fighting against human trafficking.
