At kira kira life, we've decided put aside 5% of each sale. When we reach $250, we will donate it to a non-profit organization that is helping the lives of children in meaningful ways.
I am Akari, the owner of kira kira life. I used to be a school teacher, and I love working with children. Although I am taking some time off from the teaching job in order to hone my skills as a classical Indian dancer, I cannot help but thinking about ways to contribute to the lives of children.
It is my dream to have an organization or scholarship fund someday to help the lives of children, but for now, I would like to focus on building kira kira life as a successful business, and to focus on my dance training.
However, in the meantime, I do not want to give up on somehow contributing to the lives of children. I kept thinking that there must be a way. I asked myself, "How can I do that without creating a brand new structure?" Then, an idea came to me. It was that I could put aside a certain percentage of kira kira life's revenue, and when it reached a certain amount, I would donate it to an organization project that is helping the lives of children in a way with which I resonate.
I was thrilled when I received this idea!
I've decided on the numbers: 5% and $250.
So, this is how kira kira 250 Project came to life.
It may not be much, but I hope it helps lives of children in some ways.
