Fabuloso Friday – Khuraira

Last week I did a giveaway with Khuraira’s products: lipstick and lip gloss.
While researching the product I discovered that the founder of the company, Khuraira, has a fascinating life story.
She lost her mother and was orphaned at birth in a small town in Nigeria. She was later found and rescued by her aunt and sent to a local school. “From the proceeds of cow milk and yogurt she peddled door to door in a calabash, she managed to raise Khuraira and to instill in her genuine human values of honesty, humility and selflessness.” She established KHURAIRA ORPHANS FUND, which benefits from a percentage of the proceeds from the sales of her products, read the full story
I like sharing these stories with you all because I truly believe that everything is possible as long as you know it is and act upon it everyday of your life. Life is a precious and short journey, and knowing that we made a difference, inspired one extra person, or simply shared a valuable piece of information to someone who needed it, is fulfilling in itself.
I hope you all have a good Friday, and wonderful weekend!
