Child eating rice as part of Philippine feeding programWhat do you want to do with your life? Outreach supporter Sharon Gutierrez dreamt since childhood of running her own business while also helping those in need. After traveling abroad later in life, she found the motivation to turn her goals into plans. Then she put her plans into action.

Sharon combined her love for fashion, her business acumen and her desire to support charitable causes. She did all this when she founded Balance by Sharon Gutierrez. She offers everything from women’s apparel and accessories (staples and trends!), to personal stylist and shopper services. She’s a big hit with brides looking for the perfect dresses for their bridesmaids. She also does pop-up shops around Orange County, California. All of this gives Sharon an opportunity to catch her breath between surging onward to realize more of her entrepreneurial destiny. And Sharon’s success benefits the rest of humanity, since she donates 15% of all proceeds to Outreach.

“Creating long-lasting solutions to end poverty is a smart way to help resolve this ongoing problem,” she tells us. “Ending poverty isn’t the only goal, but we also strive to provide education, good nutrition, and clean water resources.” We always get a little thrill when we hear how well our supporters communicate our talking-points.

Throughout the holiday season and beyond, Balance by Sharon Gutierrez helps customers look good. And in return, they help her support what we can all agree is the good-est of good causes: Outreach! We’re honored to have her as a part of the Outreach family, and flattered that she’s so committed to our shared mission. Great work, Sharon!
