Hi friends, If you had asked us in 2014 if Bought Beautifully would still be around in 2022 we would have been quick to say yes...hopefully :) But if you had asked us what it would look like? Well...let's say we couldn't have predicted how it looks now! We're just as surprised + excited as you that we opened our very own brick and mortar store in downtown Sheridan... during a pandemic! Thankfully, it's been fruitful leap of faith. The dedicated patronage of our local customers has been inspiring and the opportunity to reach new people with our mission has increased the impact for our partners around the Globe. Our amazing Board of Directors and staffs’ fresh perspectives and passion about our work has been rejuvenating and contagious!
A great reminder that it's truly an honor to be here in Sheridan, WY using our resources, skills, and talents to pour into People in 41 different global communities. As a non-proﬁt, we are thankful for YOU, our customers, donors, and supporters that continue to join us to make a difference in the lives of others.
Last year our sales generated over 10,100 days of employment for our partners - that's the equivalent of 38 full-time jobs! WOW!
But as you know our partners' work is about more than just jobs it's about holistically caring for and empowering people, providing resources for a brighter future, and re-igniting hope for many that had been hopeless. Please read-on as we are thrilled to share the diverse ways that transformation is happening across the globe. We hope this report gives you a deeper understanding of our work and the life-changing impacts that ripple through families and communities to physically and eternally transform lives. Thank you for being a part of the BB mission to inspire interactions that enrich lives, restore hope, empower people, and shine God's love. We couldn't do it without you! Peace, Colin & Emily Betzler (founders) Alison Meacham (board president)
