Laura Kahn, Co-Founder of Bluebelle Concierge, says, “We’ve always made a personal commitment to giving back but we decided it is definitely time to make this a company-wide commitment. Education is an issue very close to our hearts, and we think this campaign will be a great way to start the New Year while encouraging our clients and community to join us.”
The first organization Bluebelle will partner with is the Tutorpedia Foundation, a nonprofit based in San Francisco that provides high quality one-on-one tutoring services to underserved students in the Bay Area. “We are thrilled and honored that Bluebelle chose Tutorpedia Foundation as the first recipient of their quarterly giving campaign,” says Seth Linden, Founder and CEO of Tutorpedia Foundation. “This is a great partnership that will lead to the creation of more one-on-one tutoring opportunities for students in need.”
According to The San Francisco Business Times, the companies on its list of the most generous Bay Area corporate philanthropists gave a combined $220.7 million to local nonprofits in 2011. While Bluebelle and other small businesses may not be able to give on that level, the founders of Bluebelle strongly believe in the power of collective change.
“We hope that other small businesses in our community see what we’re doing and follow suit. We’re so excited about the opportunity to support and spread the word about the amazing organizations that are educating and empowering our future leaders,” says Rachel Shamash, Co-Founder of Bluebelle Concierge.
