We at BOOKofBIJOUX would not be where we are today without the community around us, without the love & support of our friends & family growing up, without the inspiration of so many incredible, successful business owners & thought leaders we've had the opportunity of learning from.
Because of this, part of our mission is to provide those same opportunities, that same level of love, support, & encouragement, that same accessibility to endless resources, back to our community & those that need it.
We know that every ounce of support we can offer, no matter how small can make a difference. So, we plan on doing everything we can to keep making those small steps towards a more incredible future for our peers & future generations.
Although we are still a small, brand new company, we know with your help we can make a BIG impact.
Our first milestone step towards giving back to our amazing community began in December of 2021. For the entire month, 10% of gross proceeds from all pre-orders were donated to the youth programs of Volunteers of America (VOA).
VOA is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting & empowering America's most vulnerable groups, from our youth to the elderly, veterans, those returning home from prison, homeless individuals & families, individuals with disabilities & those recovering from addiction.
A few examples of their youth programs & services include Operation Backpack & the Dare to Dream Scholarship Program, as well as sponsored birthday parties & craft nights.
For more information about Volunteers of America, please visit their website.
On May 1st, 2022, we hosted our first ever Women's Empowerment Market with the hopes of turning it into an annual event.
100% of net proceeds from organizing each Market we are lucky enough to host now & in the foreseeable future will be donated to a great cause.
Our first Women's Empowerment Market benefitted the Ann-Jeanette Change(ing) Lives Scholarship Fund with Contra Costa College.
