The LIV|VIE Foundation
After countless conversations with different professionals, we wholeheartedly chose to create our very own LIV|VIE Foundation. For every S.U.I.T. sold we donate € 5,00 to our LIV|VIE foundation.
Every year, the Foundation will select a good cause to support. This approach allows us to remain independent from other organizations and to select different projects and different types of charities on each occasion. Ultimately, this procedure gives us the opportunity to reach as many people as possible. The Foundation intends to focus in particular on projects aiming to support women and children.
Projects will be selected in view of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Websites such as https://www.sdgs.be and https://sdgs.un.org/goals explain how growth and development have had a tremendous impact on our planet especially during the last century. A clear message tells all of us it is time for change and we urgently need to alter our current consumption and production patterns.
By 2030, the world needs to look completely different. To that end, all UN Member States have set 17 goals to serve as a compass guiding these global changes.
With LIV|VIE there are 3 SDG's that merit our special attention because they have a very personal meaning to us:
SDG 4: Quality Education
Having been a school teacher for over 15 years, LIV|VIE Creative Director & founder of the S.U.I.T., Kim Jacobs, is passionate about education. The quality of our children's education and equal access to quality education are extremely important to us.
Kim strongly advocates lifelong learning for all is core to our development - not only as individuals, but also as a country and globally, as people.
SDG 8: Decent work and economic growth.
Having worked in the law profession for several years, founding partner and finance director Annie understands all too well how crucial the protection of labor rights, the prohibition of child labor and the safeguarding of healthy and safe working conditions are to achieving the sustainability goals.
SDG 12: Sustainable Consumption and Production
From the start of LIV|VIE, it was immediately clear to Kim & Annie that they wanted to develop their business in a sustainable and ecologically responsible way. Sustainable management and efficient use of natural resources are paramount. In addition to that, LIV|VIE is in pursuit of zero waste, recycling and reuse. The S.U.I.T.s are seasonless and never out of fashion.
Stay tuned for updates on the realizations of the LIV|VIE Foundation and how we humbly but wholeheartedly contribute to achieving (some of ) the SDG's ...
