KSM Gives Back
From the day we began Kyra's Shea Medleys, we have found ways to give back to our communities. From Butter Cream donations to monetary contributions to volunteer service, our KSM Team believes in the value of giving back to those in need.
With your help, we have donated over 2,900 Butter Creams to local nonprofits, homeless shelters, charities, and clinics in America, many chosen by YOU.
AND WE WANT TO GIVE MORE!
ONE BUTTER CREAM PURCHASED = ONE BUTTER CREAM DONATED
We donate at least 200 purse-size jars per donation.
This is how your purchases will add up to Butter Cream donations:
Buy ONE Small = ONE Butter Cream Donated
Buy ONE Medium = TWO Butter Creams Donated
Buy ONE Large = THREE Butter Creams Donated
Buy ONE Sampler Pack = THREE Butter Creams Donated
Buy ONE X-Large = FOUR Butter Creams Donated
Buy ONE Poster = FIVE Butter Creams Donated
Buy ONE Bundle or Trio Pack = SEVEN Butter Creams Donated
Here's How It Works!
1) Buy your favorite Butter Creams or any KSM products and merchandise
2) For every 200 Butter Creams accumulated, KSM will donate those Butter
Creams to a different homeless shelter or clinic, charity, or nonprofit organization
3) Please add an organization that you believe will benefit from
our hair and skin care products to the form below:
YOU ARE DONE! PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD!
THANK YOU all again for helping KSM to donate 200 jars to each of the organizations listed below (in chronological order). Read about the wonderful missions of each, visit their websites, find out how you can get involved, and donate to them directly! Please do not let the giving stop and thank you again for showing love!
In 1985, longtime homeless advocate and service provider Mollie Lowery joined with local philanthropist Frank Rice to open the Los Angeles Men's Place (L.A.M.P.) as a drop-in center for this population. Within four months of opening, more than 80 men were stopping by the center each day. The Day Center, known today as the Frank Rice Access Center, offered support for basic needs such as food and clothing, showers, health screenings, case management and benefits advocacy. In 1987, the agency began serving both men and women and shortened its name to LAMP. Lamp Community ends homelessness of Los Angeles' most vulnerable individuals, primarily adults with mental illness, through a continuum of services and housing, enabling them to reach their highest level of self-sufficiency and community integration.
