A great scarf can make a simple outfit pop and is one of those accessories you wear over and over again. I am excited to introduce you to a new scarf brand that I love called Bené. Bené offers customized scarves that are fun, affordable and contribute to an amazing cause. To give you a little background on the company, Bené was inspired by a trip to Ghana in 2011 and was ultimately founded in 2013 by Michelle Blue and Sasha Matthews. Each purchase directly benefits girls in Ghana who would otherwise not enjoy the opportunity to receive education needed to improve their lives, their families lives nor be able to make a contribution to their country.
“We enjoy helping others and love being fashionable yet comfortable in our own skin. We believe that every girl should have access to an education, despite where they were born. We believe that we can do our part in providing a hope and a future in the girls lives we support,” says Co-Founders Michelle Blue and Sasha Matthews.
To build your own customized scarf, you start by choosing from 5 different styles. Notice in the upper right corner, you get a message that says “You just made a decision to educate and empower a young girl!” Love that!
