Divas of Comedy in the Spotlight!

Posted on

HHP had a blast with iO Chicago comedians modeling HHP’s fair trade practice jewelry and accessories! You can find these gorgeous pieces in our 2017 holiday catalog.  iO founder Charna Halpern and improv stars Susan Messing, Stacey Smith, Shantira Jackson and Nnamdi Ngwe who all modeled for the shoot.

At HHP, we apply the improv mentality of “YES, AND…” as we encourage consumers to say YES to bringing our fair trade practice goods to the forefront AND to making a difference.

#LIFTCOMMUNITIES: HHP’s July act of service

Posted on

We need to protect and support our most vulnerable people and communities. HHP is able to do that through our products that provide a pathway out of poverty, and we love supporting organizations that share our mission.

The goal of our #LIFTCOMMUNITIES campaign is to create a social movement where everyone gives, volunteers or supports instinctively at least once a month.

For our July act of service, HHP is donating restaurant gift cards to Common Pantry, Chicago’s oldest continually operating food pantry. We strongly support their belief that all individuals deserve the right to good nutrition. The cards were generously donated by HHP supporter and friend Saro Hartounian, owner of Harco Industries, Inc.

Visit Common Pantry’s website to find out ways that you can support this amazing organization and help to #LIFTCOMMUNITIES.

Dear Friends,

We need to protect and support our most vulnerable people and communities. HHP is able to do that through our products that provide a pathway out of poverty, and we love supporting organizations that share our mission.

So for this month’s act of service we’ll be wearing our red noses and making a donation in support of Red Nose Day, a charity that has raised over $1 billion in 25 years to support projects that ensure kids are safe, healthy, educated, and empowered.

The goal of our #LIFTCOMMUNITIES campaign is to create a social movement where everyone gives, volunteers or supports instinctively at least once a month. Join us this month by wearing a red nose on May 25th and supporting this amazing charity!

We’ve been busy at HHP crafting something new…

HHP’s mission is to #LIFTCOMMUNITIES by providing a sustainable livelihood and job opportunities for people with barriers to employment. We’re helping to provide a pathway out of poverty, and we created 1eleven™ as another way for us to accomplish this goal.

Connecting the power of raw talent with raw materials
At HHP’s 1eleven™ facility, individuals from underserved neighborhoods in Chicago who face barriers to employment are trained and mentored to produce beautiful spa goods, securing the confidence and skills they need to advance their careers at HHP.

Instilling hope
The handcrafted, artisanal spa goods are high-quality and customizable. When you purchase these products, you know that each bar of soap or spa good helped to create a job, change a life and instill much needed hope in struggling communities.

Enjoy our luxurious line of lathers, melts, soaks, and sparks. Each purchase makes a difference.
