Giving back has always felt like a must-do; I do it personally, through contributions to various causes, but when I thought about which organizations I wanted to support specifically through donations from my business, it took some thought. Then I realized: a main goal of Artisanal Being is to encourage self-care, celebration, exploration, and relaxation. During my work as a clinical psychologist, it was very clear that those things can only really happen when there is a foundation of safety present. Safety is fundamental and has to come first before people can let their guard down, relax, try something new, or even sit with their eyes closed and take a bath or meditate.
It’s with that concept of creating safety in mind that I decided Artisanal Being would support the Joyful Heart Foundation, and the Humane Society. The Joyful Heart Foundation envisions a world free from sexual assault, domestic violence, and child abuse, and they work towards that goal through education and advocacy. The Humane Society fights for the safety of all animals, through rescue, education, and advocacy.
