Giving Back

There are 3 ways Mariposa Skies is giving back...

The first is simply to ensure the environment continues to live on. Many of you may know that in Spanish 'mariposa' means butterfly. Butterflies are very important to our environment's well being and health. Mariposa Skies' contribution to this is by donating to the Save Our Monarchs organization. In return Mariposa Skies passes along, as a thank you to you, a packet of milk thistle seeds in each and every purchase. Not only does planting these seeds ensure the continued growth of the Monarch butterfly population, it is also a way to show my gratitude to you. Once planted, they will bring you beautiful monarch butterflies! It also allows you to take part in giving back to the environment as well. It's a win for all of us!

The second is through the purchase of a Balinese Friendship Bracelet. Buy a bracelet, save a life. These fun bracelets are handmade in Ubud, Bali by local artisans. For each bracelet bought, $2.00 goes directly to The World Food Programme's Syrian Fund. To purchase one click here.

Here is an excerpt from The World Food Programme's work in Syria.

"The humanitarian situation in Syria continues to deteriorate. More and more people are being made destitute as fighting continues. The World Food Programme (WFP) is struggling to meet the urgent food needs of more than five million displaced people in Syria and in neighboring countries. Food operations are severely underfunded, meaning that WFP has been forced to reduce the level of assistance it provides to refugees across the region. Syrians in despair are now taking extreme measures to cope including returning to Syria or leaving host countries for elsewhere."To learn more about what you can do to help, visit their website at www.wfp.org

The third way Mariposa Skies gives back is by giving 10% of our profits to the Oxfam organization. At the end of each year I tally the total sales together and give 10% of if it to different entities within the Oxfam family. It may be towards planting a garden, buying food programs for school kids, or funding a fellow woman entrepreneur in her business to help her succeed and grow. It's all about paying it forward and being globally minded. If we help each other, then that is where change can happen.
