We feel it is essential to participate in the world around us and be of service to our local and global communities. As you know, it’s so easy for all of us to get caught up in our own worlds. But at Annmarie Gianni Skin Care, we’ve made it a focus to break that habit by giving back as best we can, and in many different ways, to causes and organizations that we feel strongly about as a collective team.
There are four areas of giving back that we focus on: global community, local community, political activism and skin care industry activism. To date, we’ve donated product, money, and time to these causes. And we’re still at it!
Here is a short list of some of the organizations and local community programs we are actively supporting or have supported in the past:
The Gerson Institute is a non-profit organization in San Diego, California, dedicated to providing education and training in the Gerson Therapy, an alternative, non-toxic treatment for cancer and other chronic degenerative diseases.
The mission of AyniGLOBAL is to protect and preserve traditional indigenous cultures and ancestral lands, including people, animals, plants, and water systems.
AyniGLOBAL fosters social responsibility and environmental sustainability. Guided by the principal of ayni, a Quechua word meaning reciprocity, the goal is to work toward the emergence of a new social ethos that embodies global consciousness in both ecology and economy.
This organization is located in Washington, D.C. and Cuzco, Peru and was founded by our friend and colleague Dr. J.E. Williams.
This is original grassroots group that organized the California ballot initiative to label genetically engineered foods (GMOs) that became Proposition 37. The Proposition, unfortunately, failed by a very small margin, but the group’s tireless work has created national awareness of the issue and continues to advocate the labeling of GMO foods.
We are constantly working on new projects and ways to participate, so if you have an idea, please contact us and we’ll let you know if we can help.
