The Lip Balm Company’s organic smooth spheres are the ones that everyone uses the most since the 100% natural product works with anybody’s skin. Essence of Smooth has built several facilities and hired expert scientists to create and test their products to ensure that it meets safety standards. Every little sphere of lip balm has vitamin E with antioxidants as well as shea butter to make it last. The size makes it possible to take anywhere and only weighs a little 0.25 ounce. From the organic smooth sphere section they have the Strawberry Sorbet and Passion Fruit flavors, only two of the many on shelves right now. The Strawberry Sorbet comes in a pink twistable sphere and you can smell the desert as soon as it cracks open.

How many people in Betsy Devos’ Calvin College graduating class could have predicted the force for good she would become?

Devos grew up in Michigan, the daughter of Edgar Prince. Edgar Prince founded a company that became an automobile parts supplier. Their home was in picturesque Holland, Michigan.

As a child of well-to-do parents, Betsy could have devoted herself to parties and pugs. Rather, she elected to tread the road less traveled. She dedicated her life to good works and the improvement of her nation.

Betsy Devos became an intelligent, commanding force for good in Michigan. She mastered finance to become a powerful fundraiser and taught herself organizational skills to manage her entities and personnel.

It is commonly understood that Betsy Devos has a passion for quality education. This began when her own four children were attend grade school in their hometown of Grand Rapids, Michigan. Betsy and husband Dick were invited to visit The Potter’s House, a local Christian school.

Ms. Devos’ first trip to The Potter’s House impressed her. The atmosphere, the dedication of the staff and the correct behavior of the children were all positive. This was vastly different from all of these elements in the local public school system.

Ms. Devos, never one to make decisions lightly, visited The Potter’s House several times before deciding that it was someplace she wanted to support. She realized that the parents of these at-risk children made many sacrifices to afford their safe, moral education. She realized that she wanted to assist such families. This initial investment was followed by many more in Michigan and around the United States.

By current calculations, the Devos family has donated more that $100 million dollars to worthy causes from education to arts, from leadership cultivation to community development, the Devos funds are working to improve our society.

Betsy Devos had given funds away to support hospitals, health research and Christian schools. Devos dollars have funded missions, arts organizations and free-market think tanks. She has donated funds to the Right to Life Michigan Education Fund and the Pregnancy Resource Center in Michigan. To protect individuals, Betsy has contributed to the Center for Individual Rights, the Institute for Justice and the Center for Individual Rights.

Working to improve her immediate home, Ms. Devos gave $2.39 million dollars to the Grand Rapids Christian High School Association, $652,000 to the Ada Christian School and $458,000 to Holland Christian Schools.

It is certainly obvious by this pattern of giving that Ms. Devos has a generous nature that has prompted her to give her funds away with a free hand. Her future-orientation is also demonstrated by her giving so much to education, preparing for a better future for individual students as well as for our society.
