Stand Up to Bullying by Purchasing Kind Lips Lip Balm at Kind Leaf

The world can be a cruel and dark place. Every morning, I check the news headlines on my phone, even though I keep telling myself not to, and I’m often feeling down about the state of the world. We are living in times of turmoil with the coronavirus pandemic still raging across the globe, civil unrest as people take to the streets protesting systemic racism, and there seems to be a dearth of leadership helping uplift our spirits.

I have to seek solace in positive stories and in my personal relationships filled with love and laughter. I also seek for ways to give back, whether it’s donating blood to the Red Cross or pitching in a few bucks with a nonprofit doing good work. I was so happy to learn about Kind Lips, a lip balm company that donates 20% of its net profits to anti-bullying organizations. When you can purchase a great product, and Kind Lips has a variety of flavors to fit your needs, and support a good cause, it’s truly a win-win.

Kind Leaf, Eastern Oregon’s premier craft cannabis boutique has been promoting #BeKind as a motto since its inception, making the dispensary a natural ally for Kind Lips. When you shop at Kind Leaf you know that you are helping a true Oregon small business that supports the local Pendleton economy and gives back to local families in need, especially with its Kind Tree Christmas program. So, peruse the best cannabis strain selection in the Great Northwest and pick up some Kind Lips lip balm that is helping combat bullying. It’s truly a win-win-win.

Happy Birthday to Kind Leaf! Thank You for Three Great Years!

March 10 marks three years since the opening of Kind Leaf. What started as a dream and a hope, has evolved into Eastern Oregon’s premier craft cannabis boutique. With Oregon’s biggest and best selection and many products that are exclusive to Kind Leaf in Pendleton, there is no better place for some of the world’s best cannabis flower and products. Additionally, Kind Leaf stays stocked with non-cannabis items, making it a one-stop shop for tourists or those purchasing gifts for friends and family.

When shopping at Kind Leaf, customers know that they are supporting a local, Oregon-owned small business that gives back to the community. Kind Leaf shows that they care by sponsoring local neighborhood events, culminating in the Kind Tree program that benefits families in need of help providing a magical Christmas Day for their children. The cannabis boutique is also at the forefront of protecting the public, from ensuring that consumers are getting accurate information to helping prevent communicable viruses.

The cannabis industry is not for the faint of heart. The rules, regulations, and taxes are very burdensome and the profit margins slim, but if your heart is in the right place and you provide a quality product, you can achieve the American dream. Kind Leaf is a great example for other businesses to follow, as good work and good deeds can equal good business. Happy birthday, Kind Leaf, here’s to many, many more.

Last Minute Christmas Shop at Kind Leaf, the Cannabis Boutique that Gives Back

I’m not a huge gift giver. My Christmas gift to everyone is that they don’t have to buy me anything. Of course, a few loved ones will give me presents, so I will reciprocate, I’m not a monster. If you have members of the cannabis community on your list, I urge you to support small cannabis businesses like Kind Leaf. Mom and pop retailers give back to our local communities and profits aren’t shipped out of the state or to other countries. Kind Leaf, easter Oregon’s premier craft cannabis boutique, goes a step further with its Kind Tree program. This year, 23 families with 54 children will have great Christmases because of the kindness of Kind Leaf and their customers.

Here’s what the good folks at Kind Leaf have to say about their amazing Kind Tree program:

In our community there are many children who are excited for the holiday season, all around them, people are cheerful, kind and gathering together. This is a time of happiness, connection, giving and making memories. There are some local children that don’t feel the same way about the holidays inside, even though on the outside they seem strong, resilient and happy even though they may not be finding much under their tree. Life happens so fast and parents sometimes need help this time of year, the cold makes the utilities rise, extra layers means buying extra clothes and all of the other expenses can leave the tree rather empty. This is where we step in.

The Kind Leaf team has has helped gather support for over 20 families two years in row by putting up the Kind Tree.

I don’t have any children myself, but I imagine that raising kids as the most rewarding but frightening task that people can undertake in their lives. There is no love like the love between parent and child and the responsibility of caring for, protecting and educating these young beings so full of promise and potential has to feel overpowering at times. To help parents struggling with bills and providing a great Christmas for the kids, Kind Leaf has set up their Kind Tree program that ensures that some deserving family has an amazing holiday. Kind Leaf, thanks to the generosity of their team and customers, has helped over 20 families over the last two years. Nominations are open until Monday, December 9th.

Help Kind Leaf’s Kind Tree Program Uplift Children This Holiday Season

Everyone knows that the world is a crazy place with all kinds of stressors, obligations, and craziness. One thing that we can all agree on is that children should be uplifted as much as possible. In a world with so many problems, I am so proud of Kind Leaf for stepping up to help some children and families have a great holiday celebration. Programs like this are just another reason to support small, local businesses like Kind Leaf because no one understands the needs of community than mom and pops.

We’ll be publicizing Kind Leaf’s Kind Tree for the next week, while nominations for families are open, so please help us spread the word. Personally, as my family and friends know, I’m not much of a gift giver during the holidays, but I’ll certainly be contributing to this tremendous cause and I encourage folks to do the same. Not only are you helping a great cause, it just feels good to do good, AND Kind Leaf is rewarding contributors with a gift certificate to utilize next year.

Have a merry Christmas and happy holiday season, everybody!
