If I had wealth, real wealth, I’d be over the moon that I could help those less fortunate. I donate a bit each month to charity, but I’d love the ability to feel that I’m REALLY making a difference.
Experts tell us that each and every one of us makes a difference with all our actions, and I truly believe that, but if you can really SEE the difference you’ve made, first hand, it must give you a huge feeling of such happiness!
Susie Ma, founder and CEO of Tropic Skincare came from extremely humble beginnings growing up in Shanghai, China, then later in North Queensland, Australia. Her grandma taught her how to make the most of the abundance of natural ingredients growing around her to use for her own skin and which influences her to this day.
But more than this, Susie aims to be a force for good beyond beauty and is committed to Tropic’s Infinite Purpose, to help create a Healthier, Greener, more Empowered World. So in 2019, she established a partnership with United World Schools, working with local communities in some of the world’s poorest regions to give every child access to free education, no matter their background.
In these areas, girls are often married and starting families as young as thirteen years of age, with no chance of education, shaping their future. So Susie and UWS agreed this: for every £50 spent on Tropic products, a day’s education would be provided. The aim was to create a million school days by the end of 2020. At the time of writing, over a million have already been created! That’s a year’s education for over five thousand children.
Further than this, though, Tropic has built an entire school in Cambodia. The literacy rate in the village of Steung Treng is virtually zero and now all the children living there have access to primary education. Now that’s what I call making a difference! Take a look….
I’m so proud to be a part of the Tropic family, sharing the Infinite Purpose for the good of all. Want to know more about how you can also be a part of it? Please take a look here…
