We approached the local YWCA and asked them how we could help them. They currently have 127 kids who come from challenging backgrounds with huge needs. We invited our neighborhood and Beyond community to join with us in helping improve their lives by giving each of them a backpack full of school supplies for the upcoming school year. We were able to sponsor all 127 kids for $25 per child|backpack. We shopped for all of the school supplies and gathered together at the local church to assemble all of the backpacks and add a personalized note of encouragement from each of you that sponsored a child with a backpack.
We organized a BBQ and Movie Night to distribute backpacks. It was a great event with the kids and their families. Every kid felt special and so did their sponsors. That’s the kind of thing people do to gain spiritual wellness.
There were 100+ people that participated in both phases of our YWCA Backpack & BBQ Project. We had an amazing turnout! We appreciate all of your support. Thank you so much for going above and beyond with your kindness and generosity.
SPONSOR A CHILD BY FEEDING THE NEED
A child is waiting, and you can be the hero in the life of a child in need through your sponsorship. For just $28, you can feed a child for one month, $1 per day for 28 days. All pantry packs contain non-perishable food including:
•microwavable meals (e.g., macaroni and cheese, ravioli, etc.) •granola bars without nuts •squeeze fruit pouches •pudding cup •individually packed crackers •juice drink •instant oatmeal •and Well Beyond Healthy Chocolate as an alternative healthy treat
The funds we collect for each child sponsored will feed them for one month, as they currently don’t have a reliable source for food. Through Feed the Need packs, you are helping each child live a healthier, happier life. Sponsor a child now.
We will be working together with philanthropic partners to help fund, assemble, and distribute weekend|holiday packs for children in title 1 schools in Utah. We are planning to help create and assemble healthier food packs at an event that will take place in June in Utah.
You will receive a receipt for your contribution from our 501c3 non-profit, and the option to participate in assembling and delivering the packs in June, as well as September. We will be recognizing our sponsors on our giver board on our website. Contribute now by sponsoring a child without any limits to the number of children you would like to sponsor. (Minimum one child for 28 days for $28.)
Candy Cane Lane
This holiday season, we experienced the joy and happiness that comes as a result from giving to those less fortunate than us. During the months of November 1st - December 31st, we gathered neighbors, friends, and the Beyond community together in an effort to improve the lives of the children at the local YWCA. We raised over $3,200 in donations to go towards new clothing, food, and toys for the children’s Christmas at the YWCA this year. All funds, dollar for dollar, were matched with Well Beyond Healthy Chocolate in each family’s Christmas stockings.
Mother’s Day Gift Bag of Hope
Each donation of $25 made it possible for a Beyond Me® Gift Bag of Hope valued at $50, to be gifted for Mother’s Day to each woman in need at the YWCA Utah. These gift bags included the following:
• One insulated Beyond Healthy Chocolate® bag • 16 piece gift bag of Healthy Chocolate® • One Wellness 8 book • One personalized postcard of encouragement from our Executive Leadership Team • One personalized note of hope from the donor|sponsor • One tote carry bag
