• Empowering Mothers to Become a Strong Influence in the Community

  • Who are Sapphire Moms?

    Is this you?

    They are influencers in the community.

    Sapphire Moms are women who seek to make a profound difference by being a positive influence to families and the local community by setting a good example of helping other people.

    Philanthropy/Community

    What goes on outside the home, within the community, affects the environment our children live in. Caring for others besides ourselves leads to more social responsibility and awareness of important issues.

     

    Contributing time and resources to the

    Non-Profit Sector enables the continuity of purposeful pursuits.

    Education

    In order to empower themselves and their community, Sapphire Moms always continue their education which will help their own lives and the lives of others.

    Family Involvement

    Sapphire Moms encourage their children to also become a valuable member in the community by teaching the values of Philanthropy at a young age.

  • About Us

    Making a Positive Impact

    A Sapphire Mother and Philanthropist

     

    “From what we get, we make a living. What we give, however, makes a life.”

    - Arthur Ashe

     

    As a mother, the balancing act between caring for children and tending to other responsibilities, is a task that so many moms work hard to accomplish each day. In the midst of daily routines and busy work schedules, this sought after balance can quickly grow to occupy a mother's entire lifestyle, leaving little to no time left for self-care, relationships and community involvement. Fortunately, there are ways that moms can have their cake, and eat it too.

     

    Cindy Caddel-Isaac is a Ruby Ribbon Leader and Independent Stylist. Ruby Ribbon is a fashion line where each piece in the collection is designed to smooth, hug, shape and slim a woman's body. Cindy is also the mother of two sons, ages one and three-years-old, epitomizes what having it all means as a working mother. On top of Cindy’s efforts in her role as a mother and in her career, she also has the opportunity to reach out to the community and give back. In return, this has given Cindy one of the greatest gifts of all - true fulfillment.

     

    Cindy joined clothing line company Ruby Ribbon in June 2015, with the primary goal to use its profits to earn more money, and purchase a home. Within weeks of joining, Cindy found herself involved in a fundraiser for a boy with a life threatening disease, as well as participating in a breast cancer fundraiser a few months later, all organized by the Ruby Ribbon team. “I got a chance to see first hand the type of women I was partnering with,” said Cindy. “It gave me such joy to have a tool in my life that I could use to give back, and make a difference. That’s when I decided to work that model into my business.” It was at this point, that Cindy’s life changed more than she ever thought possible. During the holidays that same year, Cindy had the idea to dedicate all her profits within a certain time period, to be donated to a family in need. “I let any customer who purchased from me, give me a name of a family who was in need, and why,” said Cindy. “I then picked one name at random, and used the profits to give them a wonderful holiday. It started with me, but turned into a community event.” When the chosen family was asked what they wanted for Christmas, they requested clothes and school supplies. Cindy posted on Facebook to find out if anyone was interested in making donations.

     

    “What resulted was something I could not have ever imagined,” Cindy said. “The entire

    community took the family under their wing. I had people going to Target to purchase new clothing and toys for the kids, spending hundreds of dollars to help them out. Every day I arrived home to new bags and boxes of clothing and toys for the family. It was unbelievable and quite frankly, overwhelming. It literally filled up my entire Family Room.” After delivering three carloads full of clothing and supplies to the family, Cindy met them at a local McDonald's which donated food to them all, while the kids played on the McDonald’s playground together.“It was an experience I will never forget. I am so grateful to be able to create experiences like this, and help people when I can,” said Cindy. “It’s just one way to give back, which is something

    that brings me great joy.”

     

    In addition to Cindy’s dedication as a mother, towards Ruby Ribbon, and helping others, Cindy is grateful for the opportunity to be a member of Playdate Connection, a Northridge based networking group for mompreneurs and busy parents to attend playdate events organized for parents to business network, all while their children play nearby. “Playdate Connection is an amazing program, no where else can you be a part of a business opportunity that includes your children,” said Cindy. “A mother does not have to choose between her kids and her business. It is so helpful to be able to weave in networking, while your children play.”

     

    Sapphire Moms was launched by Playdate Connection, a group of moms which benefits someone like Cindy, and other like-minded moms in the Los Angeles area who are business owners or "Mompreneurs." Instead of being business focused, Sapphire Moms are mothers of all ages and professions, who take their own initiative to start PHILANTHROPIC endeavors, and spread awareness about important information in their community.

     

    “I created Sapphire Moms after I started Playdate Connection in 2015,” said Playdate

    Connection and Sapphire Moms Founder, Michelle Arevalo. “I have met moms who are not business owners or have children too old to have a playdate. For Sapphire Moms, I want to reach out to ALL moms who desire to feel proud, and have a sense of fulfillment to make a difference in people's lives. The desire to help others will be passed on to their children, and future generations."

     

    Although finding balance between the numerous priorities surrounding motherhood, can feel as though spending time for self-care and in the community is a thing of the past, that does not have to be the case. For Cindy, she is proud to be a real-life example that finding balance as a mom,is indeed attainable with the right resources - and a heart which seeks fulfillment outside herself. “Giving back gives me joy and purpose,” said Cindy. “There is nothing wrong with making money, but it is also wonderful to help others who cannot at this point in their life. I was fortunate to have been given to in my past, and I love that I am now in a position to help in return.”
