GIVING BACK

Giving is a series of moments. Giving is not about the enormity of a gift or an idea. Giving can be simple, it can be small, it can happen in a moment. Giving is an attitude, a belief about the inter-dependence of the human spirit and the human condition.

Sm'ART Studio gives a percentage of it's profits from it's Etsy.com store (http://www.etsy.com/shop/SmArtStudioGlass)
to local non-profits including the Girfriend Factor http://girlfriendfactor.org/, a local non-profit scholarship organization who helps ensure that higher education and occupational training are financially accessible to adult women who choose to improve their economic position in life; striving to be self-sufficient.

Investing in our community is a great way to give back to those who have helped support your business. Volunteer groups and non-profit organizations do so much to help our communities that all of us are a part of, but they can't do it alone. We at Sm'ART Studio believe in and really enjoy the intangible benefit of giving. Giving back to the community gives a pleasant feeling of connectedness and the satisfaction of at least trying to make the world a better place.

June 12, 2013 The Girlfriend Factor ladies enjoyed a glass painting class here at Sm'ART Studio. The Girlfriend Factor, a non-profit organization, Mission Statement reads: "Our mission is to celebrate and explore the powerful influence women have on each other's lives through building friendships, sharing experiences and providing financial support in the form of educational grants to motivated women."  To get involved please visit their website at http://girlfriendfactor.org/.  We were happy to give back to their organization a percent of our proceeds.


March 25, 2013, Alana Marston, the beautiful face of Sm'ART Studio and the voice you hear at the other end of the phone when you call our studio, will be "Giving Back" to the community by teaching a "Glass Class" to the teens on probation at the Indio Teen Center.
