Giving back has always been important to me, and I like to keep on the lookout for an opportunity to help somewhere. The way I see it is that I have been blessed with a lot. Having both my parents, my siblings, and a healthy husband and children top the list. You’d better believe that I don’t take any of it for granted and I am eternally grateful!
This month I have decided to support the super stylin’ swimwear brand, Helen Jon, in collaboration with the 2017 breast cancer initiatives of the GLAM4GOOD Foundation. I am happy to call beauty expert and humanitarian Mary Alice Stephenson, the non-profit’s founder, a friend.
Breast cancer is a disease that hits close to home, as not long ago I lost a dear friend this way. Heartbreakingly, she left behind three children and a loving husband. Knowing that any one of us could be at risk for breast cancer brings on intense fear in me. The statistics are scary and that villain, cancer, doesn’t care who you are, where you live, how old you are, or how healthfully you live.
It could happen to me, you think.
Quell the Fear
Doing something to help does a lot to quell this fear, I have found. Not only does actively lending a hand make you feel good, it also makes a difference in the lives of others. What I especially like about what Helen Jon and GLAM4GOOD are doing is that it’s a multi-faceted effort. Helping to raise awareness is just one of their four goals, which also include: bolstering self-esteem, promoting healing, and honoring courage within the breast cancer sphere are the others.
To Help, Enhance Your Swimwear Collection
When you purchase any of these gorgeous items, 20 percent of the profits will go straight to GLAM4GOOD. And for every new Instagram follower on @helenjon this month, Helen Jon will donate a dollar to the cause.
Please join me in this win-win effort, and then let me know how you’re enjoying your new swimwear!
