The holidays are upon us.

It’s that time of year where we focus on our blessings, spread a little more love and make a greater effort to give back.
One organization that’s committed to giving back to the community year-round is Sweet Beginnings LLC. Sweet Beginnings LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of North Lawndale Employment Network, offers full time transitional jobs for formerly incarcerated men and women in need of a fresh start. Sweet Beginnings LLC produces beelove– an all-natural line of raw natural honey and honey-infused body care products. Surprisingly, the organization extracts honey from its own apiaries located in the Chicagoland area- with one located in North Lawndale.
Since its introduction, beelove’s high quality has earned it major buzz and features in several media outlets.   The product line, (including its signature honey), has also garnered placements with numerous retailers, including Mariano’s, Whole Foods and the Hudson News stops in both Midway and O’Hare airports.  Beelove is also available through its online store.beelove-collage-copy2With beelove, Sweet Beginnings offers a great product, and opportunity to support an important cause.  It truly is a win-win.
