If you could make a difference in someone's life, no matter how small, would you do it? For us, that answer is yes. We pride ourselves on being different than the average clothing startup. We care about helping people in bad situations to at least have an opportunity to get better.
Bonne Vie's mission is to be something more, to be able to create unique apparel and have the people who wear our brand know that they're making a difference in someone else's life. For example, we recently put through our donation to the NBCF, and one of their representatives reached out to us to thank us. In that email, she mentioned a lady from Missouri, who worked four part-time jobs and was still below the poverty line. This poor lady was at risk of developing breast cancer, and she couldn't afford a mammogram, but thanks to the NBCF, she was able to get a free one. For those of you who don't know what a mammogram is, it's an expensive early detection procedure for breast cancer. This lady was able to get this procedure done because due to the generosity of the NBCF, and the NBCF was able to afford to give that free procedure because of donations from companies like us.
Although it was just one example, there's thousands of people that we are indirectly helping, and it makes us happy to know that we're even just a small part in assisting those who can't help themselves. Whether it's the Wanderer feeling lost, the woman fighting for her Life, or the individual who's Love has been taken for granted; we are here for them.
We all want to make a difference and we'd love it if you joined us in making the world a better place, one piece of apparel at a time.
