Our Success Stories
In celebration of 2019 International Children’s Day, Life Essenz wanted to give the gift of music to children around the US.
One of the co-founder of Life Essenz never learned to play any instruments as a child and therefore was unable to help teach his own children to learn music. It was a desire to honor his children and give other the opportunity to learn music that the Violin Kit Giveaway was thought up!
With our limited budget, we decided to start small. We invested in 5 Violin Starter Kits that were an affordable price with the goal of gifting them to a variety of school music programs. School officials can be difficult to get in touch with so we reached out multiple times to the National Association for Music Education in hopes that they would help spread to the word to their membership. To our dismay, we were unable to reach anyone over there!
So we took matters into our own hands. Despite our limited budget and relatively small social media following, we opened up a contest on our Facebook page and encourage parents, home schooler and music enthusiasts to tag a school that would benefit from one of these kits. We got over 25 entries!
After selecting 5 winners at random, we shipped off the Violin Starter Kits to the lucky winners and received overwhelming gratitude and excitement from the homeschools, music programs and parents that were touched.
While just a small offering, it will always be a part of the Life Essenz mission to give back however we can.
“There is music in every child. The teacher’s job is to find it and nurture it.” – Frances Clark

Here are some of the projects we have worked on so far:
GoFundMe Campaign: The Gift of Hearing
In 2018, Life Essenz spearheaded a GoFundMe Campaign for a child who was born with congenital bilateral hearing loss and suffering from delayed speech and language development.
The Life Essenz team worked tirelessly to find non-profits, places of worship and community members who were willing to help. We were able to raise $10,000 in 30 days!
The child was able to have his surgery in time to start the school year and attend classes with all the other children.
It is projects like this that form the foundation and mission of Life Essenz. While we are a small, start-up company, we can still be a source of hope and help for those in need. Our sole purpose in sourcing and selling our products is to be able to sustain charitable projects like this.
Like a river, a drip becomes a trickle, a trickle becomes a stream and streams collect together to make a river.
As part of our commitment to give back to global charities, we support the following organizations:
Good nutrition, particularly in the first three years of life, is essential in establishing a good foundation for a child’s physical and mental health. Our Life Project strives to support Nutrition International - an organisation that is passionate about delivering the necessary vitamins and minerals to the most vulnerable child populations, world over. These supplements help nourish and bring positive change in the lives of these children.
Save the Children
Be it in the most remote corners, or the most disaster-torn and dangerous metro areas, Save the Children is an International NGO that does whatever it takes to save the right of every child, and help bring the light back into his/her life.
Children with untreated clefts around the world lives in isolation, but more importantly, have difficulty eating, breathing and speaking. Cleft repair surgery is simple, and the transformation is immediate. Smile Train is an International Children’s Charity that provides 100% free cleft repair surgery and comprehensive cleft care to children in 85+ developing countries, to help them smile, from the inside.
Today, in the States, 42 million people suffer from hunger - nearly 13 million of them, children, and more than 5 million persons, seniors. Feeding America is the United States’ largest domestic hunger-relief organisation, providing over 3.6 billion meals to virtually every community in the country. Through their food pantries and meal programs, they help pave the path for a food-secure future.
Mental Health America
Mental health conditions are to be treated long before they reach the most critical points in the disease process. Mental Health America is the nation’s leading community-based non-profit, dedicated to addressing and promoting the overall mental health of all Americans.
The United States’ largest and most effective animal protection organisation, the Humane Society provides hands-on care to more than 100,000 animals every year. By combatting cruelties such as puppy mills, animal fighting, factory farming, seal slaughter, horse cruelty, captive hunts and the wildlife trade, this society seeks a humane world for human beings and animals alike.
Oxfam is an organisation that’s part of a global movement of dedicated people working hard to fight poverty and injustice. When you support this cause, you help bring unstoppable change, to the poorest of communities.
