Start the New Year Off by “Spoiling Yourself Rotten and Giving Back”
Our motto at Verucastyle.com and the VerucaGirls Blog is “Spoil yourself rotten and give back.” We strive to make charitable giving part of the framework of our company. With the start of the new year, it is a perfect time to consider recurring donations to organizations that are in need of support to promote positive change.
VerucaStyle.com, our parent company, donates up to 20% of all net proceeds from sales on the entire site to its favorite charities, so every purchase from VerucaStyle.com results in a donation to a non-profit organization.
Verucastyle also supports an organization that was started in 1993 by a former Peace Corps volunteer. Aid Through Trade is now a leading organization in the fair trade fashion industry, and it employs 75 women artisans in Nepal. The Roll-On° Bracelet is hand-made and created of the finest quality glass beads and hand-dyed cotton thread, and come with a lifetime guarantee.
We strive to support Aid Through Trade and other charities that support human rights and that empower women and families throughout the world, including some of our favorites listed below:
ShelterBox USA provides emergency shelter and essential supplies to support communities around the world that have been affected by disaster and humanitarian crisis. Most recently, ShelterBox was able to support evacuees of Aleppo, Syria with bedding and warm clothing to protect them during cold winter conditions, thanks to generous support.
