As you babes know, we like to shine….and shine a light on some of our most favorite charitable causes. This Mother’s Day, we’re honoring motherhood in all its shapes and forms in celebration of our partnership with the Miracle Foundation – and you can, too. Some of the greatest gifts we can ever receive are the gifts of family, and that’s why the amazing team at the Miracle Foundation ensures that the orphans they support grow up with a loving, nurturing (house)mother – in a family that eats together, studies together, and plays together. There are a few ways to help the Miracle Foundation give the love and care of a housemother to orphans who don’t have one, and join them in their mission to ensure stable, happy childhoods for motherless children.

Right about now, you might be wondering…what is a housemother, anyways? A Miracle Foundation housemother acts as mom to the 20 orphaned children in her care, creating an environment in which they can truly thrive! These incredible women raise the Miracle boys & girls they support into smart, strong, compassionate, independent men & women. When our Flash founder traveled to India and met a few of the housemothers, she was blown away by the attention and love these women provided for their family units. You can watch her Indian adventure to Anbarasi with the Miracle Foundation here….and you just might start to feel all the feels. You’ve been warned.

After all that info and little video, we imagine you want to help support this amazing cause…because how could you not unless you are an unfeeling cyborg? Here’s how you can get the perfect Mother’s Day gift for mom:

1) You can honor your mom with a Mother’s Day donation in her name to fund housemothers for orphaned children! Did you know that $25 feeds a housemother for one month? That a $60 donation funds a housemother for one month, including food, salary, and room & board? That if you gave $180, you could fund a housemother for three months? Or best yet, that a $720 donation funds a housemother for an entire year!?

After making your donation, you’ll receive an email with a Mother’s Day certificate you can share with your honoree, along with a profile of one of the amazing, selfless housemothers you are helping fund.

Contents_Sheebani2) You can also gift mom with a pack of Sheebani Flash Tattoos, in which 5% of proceeds from each Sheebani collection sold are donated back to the Miracle Foundation. Think of it as a little cherry on top to make your dear mama shine bright (while doing some good) on Mother’s Day!

Now, go give your mama an extra special hug…or call her to tell her you love her. Because moms are the best, aren’t they?

In celebration of Earth Day tomorrow, today’s blog post is comin’ at ya from one of our fave babes, Melissa Matherne from Rainforest Partnership. She’s sharing a little bit about how Earth Day came to be, and why it’s important for us to all be responsible for preserving the environment that we all share. Prepare to be enlightened, babes….and impress people at parties with this awesome Earth Day trivia on April 22nd! Take it away, Melissa…

On April 22, 1970 millions of Americans joined their collective voices for one simple shout out, Save Our Planet. And this Friday, 45 years later, you can to can join the party as we will celebrate Earth Day, a movement for change.

But to understand what we are celebrating this Earth Day, we should take a look back at where it all began. 1970 brought the death of Jimi Hendrix, the end of the Beatles, and Simon & Garfunkel released their final album “Bridge Over Troubled Water.” War raged in Vietnam and youth across the country opposed it.

At that time, gas was only 6 cents/gallon and Americans everywhere drove massive gas-guzzling cars. ‘Environment’ became a dirty word and the smoke signals of industry meant one thing: money. And finally the Apollo 13 mission to the moon is abandoned with a few simple words, “Houston, we have a problem,” and boy did we ever.

Realizing the need for change, and the power of the student anti-war movement, Senator Gaylord Nelson from Wisconsin and a few of his friends powered a movement known today as Earth Day.

Now you too can join the movement around the world this Friday. Whether you donate or opt to get Flashy with the Illia pack which benefits Rainforest Partnership, it’s an easy way to be a BFF to the rainforest! Pssst….you can also take 20% off your purchase of the Illia pack with code RAINFORESTLOVE until April 22, 6pm CST.

Tropical rainforests are the lungs of our planet. The Amazon Basin alone stores 400 million metric tons of CO2 per year – about 25% of all carbon stored on land. It produces 20% of the world’s oxygen. It’s incredibly important to our climate – and our life. And it’s disappearing. Fast.

Nearly 4,500 acres of rainforests are lost every hour from illegal logging, mining, agriculture, forest fires,
and oil drilling At this rate we won’t have any tropical rainforests in 100 years. That’s a lot more carbon in the atmosphere – and a lot less oxygen.

Rainforest Partnership works directly with rainforest communities to sustainably develop products found only in the forest, giving the community a stake in keeping their trees intact.

And you can help! For the cost of…

• A Lava lamp in 1970 for $19.95, you could provide an identifying vest and belt for our Chipaota community forest patrol.
• With monthly rent in 1970 for $140.00, you could cover the salary for five forest inventory and monitoring patrols in our Chipaota community .
• A 1 Carat Diamond Ring in 1970 for $299, you could provide building material and supplies for two bee boxes in our Colibri Cloudforest community.

Earth Day 1970 gave a voice to those rising concerns, taking all those vibes of the anti-war protest movement and putting environmental concerns front and center. So in honor of the founding members of that 1970 ‘think tank’…we hope you will join us, and we wish you peace, love, and rainforest vibes!

Thanks so much for sharing, Melissa! PS Just because we love a good party, we wanted to share a fun little Earth Day soiree for you Austin-based ladies and gents. Kendra Scott is throwing a blingy and Flashy Earth Day shopping event benefiting the Rainforest Partnership! The event takes place at Kendra Scott’s Lamar location on Friday, April 22nd, 2016 from 6-8PM with 20% of the sales benefiting their amazing cause to save the rainforest.  Check out more details here!
