Blessed Lotus empowers women to change the world for children!
When I returned to the US from living in India in 2012, I made a promise. I would not forget our children around the world forced to endure abuse, hunger and rejection simply because they did not have access to school.
Blessed Lotus was founded on the principles of social entrepreneurship. Our mission, beyond creating fabulous clothing for women with curves and without, is to financially support our sister 501 (c)3 designated charity, Rippled Purpose - bringing education to oppressed and impoverished children around the world.
We have an incredible opportunity. According to MarketLine's 2014 data, women's global apparel is a $621 billion dollar industry.
Imagine what we could do if all companies put the heart in business and used 10% of their profits to change the world?
The programs we support through Ripped Purpose are focused on marginalized children in India. Our vision is to seed hope globally, so no child goes without an education.
