It’s been a huge 2018 here at PBS and we’re proud of the many achievements of our team and our salons! But we also believe that there’s more to business success than numbers on a page and for this reason our proudest achievement this year is our continued sponsorship commitment to our “Little Sisters” in Cambodia.
As you may already know, PBS sponsors five young Cambodian girls through the Bestow Sisterhood and the Cambodia Charitable Trust, helping them to stay in school and protecting them against the very real dangers of human trafficking and sex slavery.
In a country with no welfare system and no community groups offering any form of support, this kind of direct sponsorship is often the only support available to a young girl and her family.
Besides helping her to attend school, sponsorship also enables her family to use the money for food, additional school lessons, medical costs or to help their other children.
Education breaks the poverty cycle and gives children choices and here at PBS we’re so glad to be able to give five young girls the opportunity to realise their potential and strive for a better life for themselves.
So why not make 2019 the year that you and your salon get involved and start giving back? The impact of these charitable contributions is immediate and profound and the following options are a wonderful way to incorporate philanthropy into your business model.
For just $40 per month you can sponsor a young Cambodian girl – providing her with a school uniform, essential school stationery, access to health programs and a monthly contribution to her family’s living costs, helping to lift them out of poverty.
Salons can also become part of the Bestow Sisterhood by stocking and selling Generositea – the official Bestow Sisterhood tea. This beautiful rose-coloured tea is an organic blend of lemongrass, peppermint, hibiscus, cinnamon and cardamom and 100% of profits from its sales go to support the work of the Cambodia Charitable Trust.
From all of us here at PBS we wish you and your team all the best for the year to come!
Launched in New Zealand in April 2017, the Bestow Sisterhood is a partnership between Bestow Beauty founder, Janine Tait and her sister, Denise Arnold, who founded the Cambodia Charitable Trust in 2008.
The Cambodia Charitable Trust currently supports 12 primary schools, four secondary schools and two teachers’ training colleges in the Takeo and Kampot Provinces of Cambodia.
