Hello friends! Happy Wednesday!! 😃
I am so excited and my heart is joyful, to share my Passion Project with you!! Thank you for “listening”
My Instagram account @thetealadyrita features tea boxes/tea gift sets; for you, your enjoyment, and the love of teas, chocolates and gifts. CHOCOLATE! Now that I have your attention 😆
I create teaboxes! For you! For the special peeps in your life! Family, friends, colleagues, clients and neighbours! And? You decide.
The best part is...Imagine a drum roll happening now! 🥁 Can you hear it?...👂
You will be empowering and supporting impoverished women in Guatemala to create opportunities for them to support themselves and their families with their small women-owned businesses.
Why you ask? I have an abiding love of people! I also have an abiding love and flair for creating and sharing my gifts with everyone I can. My sincere love and passion for helping, serving and supporting other people in life, is my WHY in all of this!!
My passion in this endeavour isn’t solely for me; it IS about the women you and I will be empowering and helping with your purchases of teaboxes!
As a decades-long (since I was a young teenager) and fervent supporter of and volunteer at non-profit and charitable organisations, (M.C.C., Union Gospel Mission, Wagner Hills, Camp Squeah, Generation Rising, Samaritan’s Purse, Mission Thrift Store, Langley and Surrey Food Banks, United Way), I wholeheartedly believe in “donating” “giving back” and “paying it forward” consistently. I have personally visited and volunteered at, and still do, for all of these wonderful organizations.
This is about how much I pour myself into and act on what I believe in.This aligns and fully resonates with my heart, soul and purpose. This is my Why! Icymi 😃
When we pour ourselves into others, we are filling their cups and spreading joy and giving them hope! Each time you pour yourself a cup and enjoy your teabox gifts, savour it and think of the sweetener, the blessings your gift has helped to empower women!
A portion of each lovingly and carefully curated teabox you will buy, helps “Empower Women and Eliminate Poverty” in Guatemala.
After extensive research and mindful reflection of several non-profit, charitable organizations; I have concluded and decided this is the organization that wholeheartedly aligns with my passion and purpose! It “speaks” loud and clear right into my heart and soul. ❤️
“Friendship Bridge provides microfinance, education, and preventive health services to women in Guatemala to support them in building resilience and pursuing opportunities.” Read all about it and learn more here: https://www.friendshipbridge.org/
Your teabox purchases from @thetealadyrita empower women to choose their own path and create opportunities to build a better life. What an amazing privilege and opportunity to help women build a better life for themselves!
Think of that feeling, feel that feeling, knowing you have helped bring joy to women. Think of how their families will feel! I think they will feel grateful and spread that joy to their families and friends.
Whether you choose to keep a #tea box 🍵 📦 and “gift” it to yourself to indulge in, or get some to share with your family, friends or colleagues, you and your gift recipients will be glad, you will feel so good, won’t you?
Who are the special people in your life, 💝 who have an important date coming up; a reason to celebrate?! Christmas is coming up real soon! 😉 😉 OR You can “gift” 🎁them a tea box, “just because” to show your love and appreciation to them, can you not?!
Each teabox will include assorted, locally-sourced teas and tea leaves, hand-rolled truffles and fair trade chocolate, aromatic candles, something “blingy”, a book, luxury paper serviettes, a tea towel, or a variety of these wonderful items!
OR...send me your suggestions of lovely things you would appreciate in a teabox for yourself or a special person in your life.
(FYI, I am partnering with local businesses that support “giving back” and “make a difference”)
This is my heartfelt special-“tea” especially for you! 😂
Abundant gratitude to you. 🤗 🙏
Let’s have a chat about your teabox orders!
