Hi! We are Belugabee, a team of creatives that share about helping our environment and kids in need through our art, adventures, photography, and giving back. We have an online store where part of the proceeds of every released theme/series goes to a different charity and we work with these charities in person too, to show how everyone can take action and make a difference one step at a time. We want to share the message that giving back is not a task, but can be a fun activity that can be done with your community, friends, and loved ones.
You may wonder what our normal day may look like! Well, our mornings consist of responding to messages, creating stories on IG, working on to-do lists for the day. We focus a lot on marketing and social media because we believe that it’s super important to reach a bigger audience to be able to share your mission, art, or whatever it is you want to express! During our breaks or rest time, our team comes together to come up with ideas to make Belugabee more fun and think of new events or activities for the future and sometimes we take time out of the day to go outdoors, even if it’s just for a lunch or a short hike. We love nature and the best way to fall in love with it is to spend time in it. This also helps to get some fresh air and have a clear mind. It is easy to get lost in work especially if you are your own boss, so going outside is very important. During the afternoons, we make lots of new content especially since daytime lighting is ideal for videos, finish up packaging any orders, and take product photos and edit them too. After that, it’s on to drawing up new designs, creating products, and preparing for the next day. We figured out a schedule that works for us and it all started on November 16, 2020!
Since then, with the help of our customers and followers, we have been able to contribute 96 shoe boxes with gifts in them to kids in another country through Samaritan’s Purse: Operation Christmas Child, help with 279 meals to people in need through the organization, 2nd Harvest of Silicon Valley. We are currently working on getting school supplies for kids in need through Develop Africa, planting trees through One Tree Planted, contributing to Ocean Conservancy, and helping children with cancer for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month through St. Jude.
Together, we come up with ways to reach a bigger audience and are even starting our YouTube channel soon, so that people can get to know us more and see how much fun it is to give back together! We want to make our business more open to the public by getting people involved in charity events, attending our pop ups, and other in person events too.
A fun way we show caring for our environment is by sharing footage of our team hikes! We even did a Belugabee Outdoor Challenge where, for three days of one week, we asked everyone to go outside for a few minutes and do a simple scavenger hunt. Many people tagged us in their pictures and videos of the scavenger hunt and we shared it so everyone on our social media could see each other’s finds! We definitely plan on doing this again and hope you can join us in other activities such as these ones.
We are open to hearing about what charities you would like us to contribute to in the future and also if you have any fun activities/ideas you have that involve giving back to kids or our environment. We will continue to create with our team and hope you join us on our journey. During the past two years, many people have felt alone and hopeless but we want you to know that you are not. We have so much in store for anyone and everyone to be part of something bigger than themselves, know that they can make a difference and that even with all the problems around us, there is something good that we can all do together.
