I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do something I can do. – Edward Everett Hale
We can all do something. At SquareHue, we believe that we all have the ability to do at least one good thing for one person. We can’t do it for everyone but we can certainly do it for the one. We have been described as a do-good company but we don’t want to be just that. We want to be a company that inspires others to do what they can at the place they are at.
So when we got an email from one of our members we were elated. Here’s what she wrote:
Happy Tuesday, Square Hue! I just have to tell you, I got my first subscription box this morning, opened it and OMG, I am IN LOVE with my box! These colors are a perfect combination. I thought they were gorgeous in the box, but out of the box and swatched…swoon! I am a polish and nail art junkie (if I had a clue how to, I would be a blogger! LOL). I have over 500 bottles of polish, very few being drug store brands. I love trying new brands and once in a while I find one I really love, between the formula and packaging, and the all important brush and all three of these get five out of five stars, in my opinion! Your packaging is genius, we can really see what color is in the bottle, from any angle, which means that they can be stored in any way and we can still see what color we are looking for. The square bottles are going to be great for storing, also. They will sit next to each other and not have wasted space between bottles (YAY)! I so wish I would have found you sooner!! I would have been an “old timer” by now! You have gained a loyal customer, after just one box! LOL My obsessive side wishes I would have found you in time to get all the boxes of the year, (simply because you date the bottles…I LOVE THAT!), but I will search the net and maybe I can find them out there somewhere. :) Ohhhh and your pricing, thank you! I love that I can get quality polishes for a reasonable price! Anyway, I just had to write and let you know how happy I am with my polishes, and your shipping!
We shared the email with everyone in the office and one of our founders suggested that as a token of our appreciation we send her a free collection box. So we did just that. We packed it and shipped it out as a surprise. She didn’t even know it was coming. After the box was delivered, we got a second email filled with gratitude and thanksgiving. She had been having a very bad day and the box happened to arrive at just the right time. She ends her second email with this:
“Happy tears, hugs and blessings to all of you, for helping to make this old lady’s last two weeks brighter!! I know you didn’t need to hear the story about my cat, but that story plays a huge part in how blessed you all have helped make me feel. Because of your generosity to me and the feelings you all assisted in, I made a donation to our local Animal Shelter, of $100.00 in food products for all those little fur babies. This is a no-kill shelter and they were so appreciative of the donation yesterday.”
This is what our mission is all about. You see we know that there is a cause that each one of you believes in. The fact that you partner with us in the fight against human trafficking is definitely a first step but we want to challenge you to take up a cause that you can personally and passionately give to. Find something you can invest your time and money in because the rewards are great!
