Feature Friday: Society B
We enjoy highlighting one of many unique brands in our "Feature Friday" blog posts.
In 2001, sisters Kelli and Lindsay Byers dreamed of creating a business whose profits would go to charity rather than in the pockets of investors. As time went on and their lives got busier, that dream remained just that: a dream. However, frustrated by their lack of doing good and finding products that give back, that dream was revisited and revived. The Byers sisters pooled their knowledge and passions of charities and goods and created Society B.
Today, Society B serves as a platform where socially minded consumers and businesses can meet. The company curates products from businesses that give back and multiplies its positive social impact by donating 10% of sales to a featured charity of the week. Offering a wide range of products from apparel to accessories to home goods (and more), Society B is making a huge difference and helping consumers do good through something as shopping.
Featured Charity of the Week: The Kids in Need Foundation
This week (through September 6), Society B will donate 10% of all sales to the Kids in Need Foundation that helps ensure every child is prepared to learn and succeed by providing free school supplies to kids most in need.
