giving back

Bekah and Annette feel incredibly blessed in life, and now with a new business off the ground, they collectively feel it is important to sew back into the community as well as causes that matter to them personally. As a result, they support a number of local chapters and organizations through various fund raising efforts. These include their local school district, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, and a variety of fund raisers that take place annually throughout the community.

Two causes near and dear to them is Bridget’s Brigade as well as The David Sheldrick Wildife Trust. They support both organizations monetarily and encourage all their customers to take a look at these great causes and consider doing the same.

proud supporters of bridget’s brigade

In 2007, Bridget DuMont was diagnosed with advanced HER2-positive breast cancer at just 30 years of age. A healthy, active woman, wife and mother of two at the time, she had no family history of cancer. After enduring an 18-month treatment regimen, consisting of aggressive chemotherapy, radiation and bilateral mastectomy, she made a commitment to pay it forward by helping others with the disease. Bridget’s Brigade seeks a world without breast cancer by funding research to cure the disease, while easing the burden for families in the St. Louis area struggling with cancer by providing much-needed support. We are blessed to know Bridget personally from early schooling days and are proud to call her our friend. She inspires us and we have loved hosting events and trunk shows with her as a small way of giving to her great cause.

the david sheldrick wildlife trust

True to our namesake, twopinkelephants, we simply have a love for wildlife and specifically elephants, based in part on the fact that Annette grew up in Africa. There is an organization based out of Kenya that works tirelessly in the realm of elephant rescue, and we thought it fitting to give back by supporting their efforts. Born from one family’s passion for Kenya and its wilderness, the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust is today the most successful orphan-elephant rescue and rehabilitation program in the world and one of the pioneering conservation organisations for wildlife and habitat protection in East Africa. To date the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust has successfully hand-raised over 150 infant elephants and has accomplished its long-term conservation priority by effectively reintegrating orphans back into the wild herds of Tsavo, claiming many healthy wild-born calves from former-orphaned elephants raised in their care.
