Black History Month is a time to celebrate the rich history and contributions of African Americans to the world. It is a time to recognize the struggles and victories of the past. However, celebrating Black History Month is not just about remembering the past, but also about recognizing the ongoing fight for equality and creating a more inclusive society. The ongoing fight for equality and justice is something that must be acknowledged and addressed every day, not just during Black History Month which is why at Bio Seaweed Gel, we created our year-round Points for Donation initiative.
Points for Donation (PFD) is a year-round initiative that has been a part of our loyalty program for the past two years. The PFD initiative was first introduced to the BSG Rewards Program in February 2021 to celebrate Black History Month and has since been made a permanent addition as part of BSG's ongoing support for equality and to end racial injustice.
Points for Donation allows our customers to make a donation using loyalty points earned from shopping on our site. All donations go to a featured charity or organization that supports and does impactful work to increase awareness, promote equality and justice for Black Communities.
Some of the organizations in which Points for Donation have supported are:
Our current featured organization is:
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Points For Donation allows customer to turn their BSG points to a $5 charitable donation. Bio Seaweed Gel will also donate an additional $1 for every donation made. All proceeds will go to the featured organization.
100 BSG Points = $5 PFD Donation + $1 additional top up from BSG

Through our year-round Points for Donation initiative, we are proud to be able to support NAACP and their fight to eliminate race-based discrimination and ensure the health and well-being of all persons. By celebrating Black history year-round, we can create a more equitable and just society, and honor the legacy of those who have fought for justice and equality.
101 BLACK NAIL ARTISTS, BLACK CONTENT CREATORS AND BLACK OWNED BUSINESSES YOU SHOULD KNOW
To further celebrate Black History month and the beauty of black creatives, we've created a list of 101 Black Nail Artists, Black Content Creators and Black-Owned Businesses you should know, support and follow!
