YOU put the 'why' in Symphony!
Updated: Nov 13, 2020
Whenever we’re out promoting My Symphony Seasonings, we are frequently asked two ‘why’s’: 1) Why start a business? And 2) Why sell organic seasoning and tea blends?
The answer to both questions is the same: We want to help people!
According to Wikipedia, the term philanthropy means the love of humanity. A conventional modern definition is “private initiatives, for the public good, focusing on quality of life”.
1) Why start a business? Honestly, the simple answer is to be able to financially help those in need, be it with disaster relief, refugee aid, missions, etc. We want to personally be involved in philanthropies, helping others by using the profits of every sale to show love by meeting a need.
2) Why sell organic seasoning and tea blends? We want to help people be healthy and one small way to achieve this is simply by adding premium, flavorful herbs & spices to their recipes as well as those we share. We love food at My Symphony Seasonings and our seasoning blends just enhance the natural flavor of food without adding any artificial fillers or perilous preservatives while retaining beneficial oils & antioxidants. Also, according to many reputable sources regular use of quality herbs & spices can be attributed to a boost in one’s immunity, decrease inflammation, lower blood sugar or blood pressure levels, relief of many GI/gut issues and so much more!
So, where do you factor in to this equation? How is it that you put the ‘why’ in Symphony? Every purchase you make helps us achieve both of our goals: the profits from every sell helps others (not just a few cents of every purchase, but dollars out of every single packet sold buys a coat for a foster child or enables someone to learn a trade, etc.) and you are helping yourself by adding good quality, organic seasoning blends to the food you prepare which helps to achieve/maintain your own health!
Here's where the profits from your purchases gave aid in 2018:
*Sewing machines purchased for Rehoboth Tailoring Institute in India to teach ladies in that area a trade
*Toothbrushes, toothpaste & spoons contributed for a Haiti Shoe-box Drive through the Matiak Foundation
*Backpacks with school supplies distributed to students in Title 1 schools in Atlanta, GA
*Diapers donated to help displaced refugees in Clarkston, GA
*Monthly sponsorship of a beautiful young girl in Rubavu Rwanda through
Africa New Life, helping her family pay the fees, purchase textbooks & supplies, etc. necessary for regular attendance in school
*Charitable sum given to Cross International for disaster relief
*Donation contributed for missionary work in Columbia
*Sponsored a local child in need for area Summer Camp
*Mirrors purchased for a 5th grade girl confidence/beauty discussion
*Our next musical note will be...purchasing coats for local children in Foster care, can you help?
And because we can't pass up an opportunity to share a poem that sings to us...
Teresa of Avila (1515–1582)
Christ Has No Body
Christ has no body but yours, No hands, no feet on earth but yours, Yours are the eyes with which he looks, compassion on this world, Yours are the feet with which he walks to do good, Yours are the hands, with which he blesses all the world. Yours are the hands, yours are the feet, Yours are the eyes, you are his body. Christ has no body now but yours,
