A Little Feel-Good Story For You

Thu, 09/01/2016 - 13:54 -- Jess

Hi curlies!  This post isn’t about curly hair, but it IS about starting a business and charitable giving, which are two things I’m clearly passionate about. :)

A few months ago, a dear college friend of mine from Boston wrote me and said her 11 year old son Harry wanted to talk to me about business. Um … ok. :) I was intrigued. :) 

She told me that one of his friends had recently been diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma and Harry decided that he wanted to start making lip balm as a way to raise money for cancer research. He wanted business advice from me. Um… ok! :) Harry and I hung out for a few days when he was 3, so it thrilled me to learn what an awesome human he's evolving into. :) 

The end result is Bennett Brothers Balm.

Harry and his little brother Heath (with help and oversight from their mom and dad of course :) ) are now up and running and donating 100% of their profits to Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. They’ve already made a donation of $587 and have only been in business for a few months. That’s a lot of lip balm, eh?! :)

As you know, charitable giving is important to Jessicurl, and you can read more about our efforts here.

If your lips are chapped from the hot summer sun, I wholeheartedly recommend  Bennett Brothers Balm. :) I think we can all agree we need more people like them in the world. (And the lip balm rocks too, by the way. :) ) 

Here's an old picture of me and Harry back when we were both much younger and shorter hair. :)
