Sauipe Swim is partnering with Developing Faces to raise funds for the next surgical mission to Guatemala. Sauipe Swim will be donating five percent of all sales from September 1st to September 10th to Developing Faces. The donated funds will be going towards purchasing medical supplies for the January 2020 Developing Faces mission.
A little about Sauipe: Sauipe is a high quality swimwear brand known for its sophisticated, contemporary styles that are made in Brazil. With swimwear pieces ranging from string bikinis to more modest one pieces, there’s a wide range of colors and styles to choose from. Founded in 2009, Sauipe is sold at many resort stores, included Four Seasons boutiques in resort locations. Look out for their swimsuits the next time you are shopping in a Four Seasons boutique!
What Developing Faces does: Developing Faces is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that provides high quality surgical care to babies and children with facial abnormalities living in developing countries around the world. The nonprofit has completed multiple successful surgical missions, with the most recent mission in August 2018. A team of highly skilled pediatric plastic surgeons, a pediatric anesthesiologist and operating room nurses spend a week operating on children needing surgery at a hospital. Families from up to seven hours away will travel to the hospital so that their children can receive medical care. The most common surgeries include cleft lip, cleft palate and ear microcia.
None of the officers or volunteers of Developing Faces get paid for the work we do. This means all of the donations from Sauipe go straight towards what they were intended for: improving the lives of precious children in countries that are not yet equipped to provide medical care for these common birth defects. Developing Faces is able to continue going on mission trips with the help of partnerships with brands like Sauipe. It always warms my heart when a brand I already love offers to partner with the non-profit organization I dedicate so much of my time to.
I wore the Sauipe one-piece swimsuit to a pool side Labor Day party. I kept the outfit simple with a hat, white coverup, an opal necklace and a hand engraved, personalized Together Stone Ring from Mia Love. Mia Love engraved my first and last name on it, but typically hand engrave the names of two lovers on either side of the stone. After entering whatever you want engraved on the ring, you choose your birthstone. I’m a September baby, so I got the ring with a beautiful blue sapphire stone in the center. It’s hard to believe I’m already posting an ‘end of the summer’ photo, but I’m going to continue enjoying the beautiful weather for as long as we have it!
