Project Description

Hi, This is Elevation Lifestyle we are a home and body care company. We make all natural and clean products...and the majority of our products are vegan but, we can't officially claim that until our certifications come through (future yay!) We started our company in 2019 and it was originally a lifestyle blog where we blogged about all things from our favorite meals, music, and clothing—it was family run and we had a great run and sizable audience. 

Then, in 2020 the pandemic (aka, Ms. Corona, or the Panini) happened and we were left stuck—the blog wasn't generating enough income to support our actual livelihood that our jobs were subsidizing and on top of everything, I lost my mom, my anchor, my kids grandma, and our on earth angel. When she passed we didn't know what to do with our grief or what was going to happen. That is when we were reminded of our first love and that was making all natural body care products just for ourselves—my mom loved smelling good and smell good things, so we made up small batches and gave them as gifts to friends and family and when we discovered that they loved and used them, we decided to make it a business. 

a very humble look at our beginnings
A humble look at where we started
Another humble look at where we started
We popped up an old Hallmark Store and killed this Black Friday day.

 

When we first started, we just wanted to get our products our there and start generating income and each time we'd set up our little 6ft table, we'd sell out within hours. Whether we were in a little mall or popping up in the middle of a town center. That is when we knew we had a great product on our hands. 

But, we also learned a very valuable lesson—you cannot smell through a computer, but some people buy with their eyes that is when we invested in our packaging and really started to grow our product line. We still noticed that a lot of our customers that purchase through our website are returning customers—not a bad thing but we know we can capture more hearts if we started to make ways to to growing our foot print in the body care business. 

That is when we started wholesale and consignment, where store owners can sell our products for us and in return we'd get a flux of new customers. For a long time we loved this process and still love it because it pays our bills and keeps our business thriving and growing but, we know we could be making a nice bit if we had our own something. 

This is where we need your help, we are hoping and aiming to raised 25k ( we're flexible ) so we can open our very first brick and mortar store before the holidays or early 2023. We've learned that people love our products in person because they can actually test in person and smell in person and can see us make it in person. 

Our store is going to be a representation of us as a brand, it's going to be clean—lots of whites and woods. In the store you'll be able to test before you buy, you'll have the opportunity to see us make product on the floor and see what we actually put in it and genuinely know we don't skimp on quality. In addition to taking classes at our store. We'll also carry other small and growing brands in the store to compliment our product line.

Oh, and as a thank you once our store is open and running it is our goal to reach back out to I Fund Women to partner on our E.L. Fund, so we can pay it forward to another small brand and this is something we want to do quarterly. 

We know we can become the next...you know who...just made natural and cleaner. With a business like ours, you can know that you are investing and in the future buying quality product that actually works for your body and home. We stand by our product and can honestly go to bat for it as well. With your donation, you can rest assured that it's going to be put to good use.

We thank you in advance and hope to reach our goal.
