I could not be more excited to share that I will be working with Fleurs de Prairie on a really exciting initiative: their Seeds of Beauty Campaign. Being able to be a part of it warms my heart and makes me so happy. Besides the obvious (I LOVE THIS WINE), what I love most about it is the mission behind the campaign: women helping women!
Fleurs de Prairie Seeds of Beauty
If you are not familiar with Fleurs de Prairie, it is an absolutely amazing rosé from Provence. It’s so bright and refreshing (and not too sweet) with delicate flavors of strawberry, rose petals, and herbs. The name directly translates to “wildflowers,” a tribute to a tribute to the beautiful fields of wisteria, lavender, poppy and sunflowers that dot the hillsides of Provence.
Fleurs de Prairie is on a mission to help make the world a more beautiful place. As a part of that, they have something called their Seeds of Beauty campaign, which aims to celebrate female creatives by providing them with financial support and mentorship. So beginning this week, the brand invites female-owned small businesses to apply for seed grants by sharing what their business is and how they spread beauty in their own unique way.
It’s really so easy to enter and if you are a (female!) small business owner, I would encourage you to apply. Fleurs de Prairie will select three women who embody the brand’s mission. And supply them with $5,000 grants to help fund their company. They will also receive mentorship. (I’m delighted to share that I will be one of the mentors!)
You can enter right this way, the deadline to apply is August 31, 2020!
A few important FAQ’s!
Who can apply?
The contest is open to legal U.S. residents of the 48 Contiguous United States and the District of Columbia, who are 21 years of age or older at time of entry.
Do I need a business plan to enter?
No! A business plan is not required. The judges will simply be looking for more information about their goals for the company and how the $5,000 grant would assist them in achieving these objectives.
