Hi friends, Chelsey here.
I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about what actions I can personally take to make a difference in the fight for Black Lives...not only what actions I can take as a white woman of privilege, but also as a small business owner.
In addition to educating ourselves and being part of a greater dialogue, we have so many different avenues to promote change. We can use our voices, but we can also take action by voting, protesting, and donating to organizations that aid in this fight.
This small business of mine isn’t much, but what I do know is that there is more that I can do with it. I can chose to use it as a tool for good. So I plan to.
During the month of August, I will be donating 10% off the proceeds from online sales at The Blush Edit to Heal Charlotte and the NAACP Empowerment Programs, in order to better support my community.
So for the next month, whenever you make a purchase with me, know that you are helping to directly fund two incredible organizations that work tirelessly to create lasting change in our local community, and in the US.
Following this month, The Blush Edit will continue to donate a portion of sales to both of these incredible organizations every month going forward.
To my beautiful customers, PLEASE continue to take action. Do not let this movement die down. Stay angry, stay open, stay working to educate yourself, and DO SOMETHING.
I appreciate your continued support SO much, and hope that you’ll contribute to this effort.
From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU!
