I have 12 beautiful companies participating in the BeMore Instagram Launch giveaway. Go take a look and enter
BeMore is a charitable company selling beautifully designed, or handcrafted items from clothing, to jewelry, to furniture, and decor. All items are donated from big hearted companies then sold flash sale style at a large discount with 100% proceeds going to a monthly charitable cause or deserving person.
Around the same time I received that news my little brother visited West Africa where he served a mission for our church several years ago. He learned of an old friend, Edgar, who had moved to a different country with the promise of good work, with the intention of sending money back home to his wife and 6 kids. When Edgar e got to his new job, it no longer existed and the “employer” refused to pay this mans way back home. With his family back in the Ivory Coast and no money to get home, let alone send to his family, he was stuck and his family without an income for over a year.
I expressed to my brother when he got home from west Africa how blessed I feel and how at times I feel horrible because I’m not deserving of it while so many others seem to be. I also expressed, after my Brother raised the money to get Edgar home, (HE’S HOME!) Just how amazing I thought he was. His reply was “Alone I am little, with him I am More.”
With all of this I became very passionate about the idea of creating something bigger than myself, giving others the opportunity to participate, and helping people and causes that really need help. All in all I was and am just ready to BeMore than what I’ve been. As some of you know, from my blog post at the beginning to the year, I have spent the last 2 years just surviving, JUST BEING. Which I needed, which I would have crumbled without. But I’m to a point now of being done with just surviving and ready to BeMore.
This passion along with my passions for supporting small businesses and beautifully handcrafted items are the inspiration behind BeMore. Please follow along, purchase gorgeous items and know that the proceeds are going to a beautiful cause.
This month all proceeds will be going to my Aunt to help with building a ramp to her home for her new wheelchair, medical expenses, or any other needs she has related to her new diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis. Want to help now? Go and donate to her GOFUNDME page.
Thank you for all of the lovely support and generosity so far! xoxo
