How much of an impact and what kind of business? A company I just joined gives to a cause that supports single mothers. A portion of the party proceeds is donated to this when a certain dollar level is made at a show. Like I said, I just joined so I'm still learning the details of it. It's Pink Zebra and we sell candle sprinkles that melt in a warmer. Let me know if this might be something you're looking for or if you're looking specifically for jewelry.

I believe Vi Bella supports artisans who make the jewelry. I'm not involved with them, but I read about them a little bit. There is a thread about the company here in the jewelry folder.

Good luck with your search,
Missy Roth

Just my opinion. But you can take any DS business and put it toward a good cause. With O2 I've done several fund raisers as well as donated a portion of my commissions to a local charity.

At team meetings my direct has everyone bring in items to give to the local food pantry and CASA.

Your business is what you make it. Good luck!

I agree that even if your company isn't associated with a cause you can still do something on your own . Some companies are simply small like mine and not there yet. I've been blessed with my business where I'll be able to use some of the money to donate to charities during this holidays for much needed children and families.

I agree with what people are posting above. Join a company in which you love their PRODUCTS. That way you can be passionate about selling... (I'd hate to try and sell for a company whereby I wasn't loving their products).............

Then I would take the commission I'm earning and donate those to the charity(ies) I have a vested interest in.

I think I would hard pressed to find a company that supports a charity that I personally believe in and want to support as well. This way you can donate your proceeds to a dog shelter or your local church, or both!

South Hill Designs has a collection where 100% of the sales are donated to Make a Wish Canada and Make A Wish Arizona. Amazing company, wonderful organization.
