Kids Making A Difference: The Bennett Brothers, Founders Of Bennett Brothers Balm
The Bennett Brothers, Harry and Heath, were inspired to create Bennett Brothers Balm when their friend was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in May of 2016. They wanted to do something to help him feel better and also raise money for cancer research. They learned that cancer patients’ lips and skin can get very dry from chemo treatments, so they decided that making and selling a lip balm would be a great idea!
Bennett Brothers Balm is a line of all-natural, chemical-free, vegan, lip & body balm products made with LOVE in Malden, MA. 100% of their profits are donated to cancer research and they have raised over $35,000 to date.
We are thrilled to have Harry and Heath as our Wonder Crate Kids of the Month for April and ask them a few questions about making an impact.
What positive impact do you hope to have on the world?
We hope to help doctors find a cure for cancer by raising funds to support their research. Pediatric cancer receives only 4% of government research funding, and we believe that children deserve more than 4%! We hope that our story might inspire other young people to give back in their communities and help their friends whenever they can!
How are you doing it?
Heath and I started Bennett Brothers Balm for our friend who was diagnosed with cancer at 11 years old. We learned that chemo treatments can make lips and skin dry, so we decided to create something that would help our friend and other cancer patients feel better. We make and sell lip and body balms and we donate 100% of our profits to cancer research and patient care. So far we have raised over $35,000.
What special skills have you used along the way?
Some of the skills that have helped us along the way are, creativity, confidence, optimism, persistence, social responsibility, and compassion.
