As each school year comes to a close, I re-examine Name Bubbles as a whole, and ask myself, “Are the customers and the employees happy? Which processes need to be improved? Do we need new equipment?” Then, a higher level checkup takes place. I ask myself, “Am I making a positive difference? What more can I do?”
It has always been my belief that business can and should do good for others. As a business owner, it is my responsibility to provide a safe, stable, and nurturing environment for my employees. This gives individuals room to learn and grow; it helps promote happiness and build a collaborative community in the workplace. Since our second year of operation, Name Bubbles has run a giving program, which we recently named Labeled for Good. Giving is one of our core values, and each year I look for a non-profit organization that focuses on children’s health, happiness, and education to partner with.
In January, when I began searching for a new Labeled for Good partner for 2016, I found Miracle Foundation and I knew my search was over. Miracle Foundation is a non-profit organization that brings life changing care to the world’s orphans. Together with their donors, Miracle Foundation transforms local orphanages into homes, trains displaced women to become cherished mothers and funds scholarships for education. Their approach empowers donors, caregivers and children.
The global orphan crisis is staggering. According to UNICEF, there are 153 million orphans on the planet, and many of these children live in under-funded and over-crowded institutions where their basic needs are not met. When I looked at the Miracle Foundation website and watched Founder, Caroline Boudreaux, speak about the foundation and what motivated her to take action, I had tears in my eyes. I was in awe of her and her commitment to help children. I respect and admire the organization’s approach, mission, and how they are changing lives, and, I wanted to help.
This back-to-school season, Name Bubbles will be donating $1 of every school pack to Miracle Foundation in hopes of funding an entire year of education for a Miracle Foundation orphanage in India. Our goal is to reach $10,000 dollars by the end of September and we thank our customers for choosing Name Bubbles and helping us provide quality education to deserving children.
