Plants are good, they make us happy. Yet, while mystical and divine, plants are not born from fantasy...they are alive and truly real, whispering hums of healing, and billowing with vibrational frequencies. Petals, roots, stems, health, happiness, beauty...a synchronicity of all living things. This is Zum, our opus of nature, our symphony of zenergy. A place where National Geographic meets Marie Antoinette in a John Denver lullaby while the plants speak secrets to each other. We invite you to wander into the world of Zum botanical happiness, where serotonin reaches new heights. And if you listen while lathering, you might hear a melody from nature’s chorus.
CAUSES WE SUPPORT.
Here at Indigo Wild, we love dogs and hate breast cancer. Many of our own pups are rescues, and we're active in Kansas City Sheltie Rescue. We like Zum Mutts and we cannot lie. Small ones, big ones, fat ones, skinny ones. Old, young, hairy, bald mutts, and pure breeds. Our place runneth over with the dogs we love, and that’s why we’ve teamed up with Kansas City Sheltie Rescue. For each Y.U.M. Bar sold, we donate $1.00 to Kansas City Sheltie Rescue, a non-profit Sheltie Rescue Corporation that rescues and searches for great “fur-ever” homes for Shelties in the Greater Kansas City area. You can help at kcsheltierescue.org.
We also have some badass cancer fighters in our ranks, and we're working with some great local charities to support cancer warriors. Our Betsy line is our ode to orbs – hers, yours, and globes around the world. Why? Because of Betsy, Caroline, Leslie, Ann, Beth, and Robin. Because we love these Zum Chicks and their magnificent mammaries. Because breast cancer affects everyone. Because boobies deserve better. The Betsy line is named in honor of our own Zum Chick, Besty Medina, who Van Dammed cancer more than 14 years ago. Today she is cancer-free, but thousands of people still need our support. We’ve created the Betsy line to give back to both breast cancer patients and survivors. $1.00 for every Betsy Bar sold is donated to Turning Point: The Center for Hope and Healing, a program that provides empowerment and transformation of the mind, body, and spirit of individuals living with serious or chronic illnesses. 25% of sales of every Betsy Body go to Back in the Swing, a non-profit organization that supports healthy and proactive living for breast cancer survivors.
