Early in my journey with Personal Hero I reached out to some passionate entrepreneurs with whom I believed my vision aligned. One such lady was Lydia Mays. To my delight, Lydia welcomed my questions and curiosity with open arms, encouragement and support. This super passionate woman is such a perfect example of humanity at it's finest. With her big heart and desire to help others in any way possible, she is a truly beautiful soul.
And as it just so happens, the company she started is called See Beautiful. Perfect name for a perfect person and a perfect mission!
Lydia shares that she started See Beautiful as her way to create more beauty in the world. As so many of us that wear our heart on our sleeves, and are ultra sensitive to all the world's woes, Lydia was in a a place of frustration and felt the need to do something to get out of this dark space.
This is when Lydia consciously started looking for the beauty - in herself, in those around her, in the world. It was her way of pulling herself out of the darkness and instead choosing to find all that truly is beautiful around her.
And it is during these journeys through pain that we learn the best life lessons! If we can be present during the experience and look for these lessons, there is often something so much bigger than we could ever imagine.
With Lydia, it was the birth of See Beautiful.
See Beautiful is a philanthropic company with a mission to provide inspiring, ethically-sourced products that create more beautiful in the process. With every purchase, you choose which of our Humanitarian Giving Initiatives to support. Together, we are creating more beautiful in the world through empowerment, education and strategic giving initiatives.
See beautiful in yourself. See beautiful in others. Create more beautiful in the world.
One of my reasons for initially reaching out to Lydia is to learn how to incorporate a giving component into my business. It was very important to me that I find a way to also give back. I learned a lot from our conversations and my goal is to one day be able to say.....
I have helped donate $86,000 to charities!
Yep, Lydia can say that! To date, See Beautiful has donated close to $100,000 to such charities as teachers, schools, families, animal rescue, as well as other unique causes. Their giving component is really unique and all encompassing as they have an application on their website that any organization can fill out to request assistance. It is a great way for smaller groups to connect with an organization to help them raise funds.
Lydia Mays and See Beautiful are definitely touching the world and making a difference. I am so very grateful to have connected with Lydia and to be able to watch her journey with See Beautiful as they bless so many.
