Greetings, beauties!

It’s Lauren Napier here. You may know me as the founder of Napier Beauty, but today I’d like to introduce you to my latest endeavor, Consider Something Better. I launched this initiative with my friend Whitney Brown  (founder of Meet the Owner ) and we’d love to have your involvement.

Consider Something Better is a grassroots campaign to encourage large corporations that benefit from the foundation of the Black community – exploiting Black women’s labor at $.63 on every dollar, under banking and lack of access to capital to give back. Corporate support is more than just a black box on an Instagram feed and a tweet. We’re asking brands to step up to the challenge by investing in the fund with no less than $250k each to reach our goal of $5 million in capital.

Black women do ALL of the heavy lifting in our community. Black women have already asked to donate. While we embrace the support, Consider Something Better is reaching out directly to the decision makers and executives at these corporations to galvanize support and meet our goal of $5M to support Black women-led business. As you know, Black women receive less finding and higher scrutiny from lenders. Consider Something Better is casting a wider net to deploy funding to Black women-led companies, services, and creatives.
I encourage you all to join the movement! Go to Consider Something Better online and get your business on the list. We also ask that you like, follow and share on social. While sharing, we kindly ask that you tag other Black woman-led businesses. If there are questions or press interest, please direct them to https://www.considersomethingbetter.com/contact.
Black women are leaders, innovators, and torchbearers. All we want is our fair share of money, power, and respect. Let’s get what we deserve and more!
