How Beautiful Minds helps local communities
At Beautiful Minds, products are procured by making an advance payment to the NGO / institution. The money is paid as a stipend to the individual/s making the product, thereby enabling them to earn their livelihood. Being a socially responsible enterprise, we promote environment-friendly products made by underprivileged groups like natural Holi colors and handmade organic Ganeshas.

It is my passion to encourage differently-abled individuals in their work. In addition to sharing their products on our marketing platform, I look for other ways to support differently-abled artists. Ever so often, when Beautiful Minds participates in an exhibition, I make it a point to walk around to check if any stalls have been put up by any challenged individuals, to learn more about the work they do and see if I can support them.

Beautiful Minds also invites differently-abled artists to showcase their art & talents at our store. We recently organized an in-store exhibition wherein we had displayed art created by differently-abled artists. We had a foot artist doing a live painting for the visitors. Our in-store creative arts and crafts workshops are conducted by challenged individuals.
