Two Rhode Island companies, founded and run by women, have come together this month to double the opportunity for positive impact.
Ava Anderson and Edesia were both boldly founded in Rhode Island in 2009, when the state was in the midst of the great recession that had enveloped the entire country. Both were founded by women on a mission to bring about change, and as a credit to the power of storytelling in the media, both were inspired by a news story they saw on TV. For Navyn it was Anderson Cooper reporting on a “miracle” treatment for malnutrition called Plumpy’Nut . For Ava it was a program about the toxins found in everyday cosmetic products that were dangerous to women’s health.
Unable to find any products on the market truly toxin free Ava set about creating her own line of safe non-toxic beauty, and home care products.
By establishing the non-profit Edesia in 2009 and producing Plumpy’Nut in her home state, Navyn both provided local jobs, and global nutrition solutions all at once.
Both companies have grown exponentially since they launched five years ago.
For the month of November each order of Ava Anderson products will provide a packet of Plumpy’Nut to a child in need.
Typically within 7-week course of Plumpy’Nut a child suffering from severe acute malnutrition can be brought back to a healthy weight. Proper nutrition is especially critical in small children whose brains and bodies are growing rapidly, and lack of nutrition can cause a condition called stunting from which they will never reach their full cognitive potential.
This partnership offers a great opportunity to purchase safe, toxin free products for yourself and your loved ones, while knowing that at the same time you will also be contributing towards the treatment of a child’s health. Plus for each order made through this link using the party ID # 4418 4 you will be entered to win a $25.00 Ava Anderson gift certificate! You can help us to #NourishTheFuture with these gifts that give back this month.
Please feel free to share this post and inspire others to shop Ava in November for maximum impact.
