THE BLANK TEE WITH A BIG MESSAGE
Love’s Inner Armor Inc. is a start-up social enterprise looking for backers. – Social Enterprise – while this means many different things, for us it means that we are registered as a Corporation and give 20% of gross profit from sales to organizations.
When we found out the kind of difference $1,000 can make in poor and developing countries especially in communities– it was clear that so much can be done with access to cash. Cash is so hard to come by – there are promises and grant applications for those who speak English and sometimes donation of clothing – but no capital. I met women that can make change happen with their dedication, leadership and action and a little bit of money.
This Enterprise is in the qualifying stages for a BCorp status. See below for more info but essentially a third-party qualification that looks at governance, employee relations (including international suppliers), community involvement, environmental record and other areas that make businesses good corporate citizens.
