Read on to learn more about Acure’s mission and charitable partners:

The team at Acure believes that each and every one of us can make an enormous impact on the world by making small changes in the items we use, the purchases we make, and the way that we approach each day. With that in mind, they offer a lineup of skin, hair, and body care products that are as gentle to your body as they are to the planet. 

Acure is made up of skin & hair wellness enthusiasts who believe in the power of purity to uplift the way you feel. They source the highest quality ingredients for your skin, which means no parabens, sulfates, formaldehyde, paraffin, mineral oil or animal testing allowed.

Their mission is to take skin and hair from blah to brilliant by boosting their performance with powerful combinations of amazing ingredients. They hope to steer people toward healthier and more accessible skin care & hair care that will allow them to shine their brightest.

As a company, they also try to make an impact by pursuing a triple bottom line. They believe people and planet are just as important as profits, so they support organizations that share these values. Their charitable partners include:

 

UNITE FOR HER is a breast cancer nonprofit organization whose mission is to bridge the gap between the medical and wellness communities by providing accessible resources through complementary therapies that supplement medical treatment, caring for the physical, emotional and financial needs of the breast cancer patients they serve.

TURNING GREEN is a student-led movement devoted to education and advocacy around environmentally sustainable and socially responsible choices for individuals, schools, and communities.

Ham & Cheese Breakfast Casserole

Are you searching for a fabulous casserole recipe to anchor your Mother’s Day brunch menu? We think you’ll love this one! It comes from one of our favorite go-to sources for recipes, thekitchn.com, and it is one of their most popular recipes ever posted. The author describes it as “…rich, eggy, and unbelievably, incredibly delicious. This is one to memorize, folks, and to pull out for in-laws and overnight guests. It may just be the very best brunch casserole I’ve ever made.” Its make-ahead nature adds to the appeal – you’re not up at the crack of dawn on brunch day and you get to enjoy the company of your brunch guests instead of slaving away in the kitchen. We think you’ll also love the layered presentation. It’s as pleasing to the eye as it is to the palate. Enjoy!
