Give Back | Project Compassion


What is Project Compassion by BENTLEY+LACE? This project was created by Founder of Bentley+Lace, Elizabeth Copeland, in 2017, as a way to spread love, kindness, hope, love. This project is about uniting creative forces to come together and use their talents and time as a way to give back to others. There is no better feeling in the world than to see others smile. To provide love and hope to those who may be suffering.
Copeland has found that through every hardship, all women no matter the age, LOVE to feel pretty. There is no better escape than through a beautiful portrait session or styled session. This project was created for the soul purpose to spread this message to as many young girls and women as possible – far and wide.
“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others. – We give back because it teaches us find compassion within ourselves and to stay attached to values that are linked to the common good.” Gandhi
Through your talent and time – think about how many lives you could touch. Through a tiny gesture as gifting a photo shoot, styled session, portrait session. “Giving back builds hope – and when there is hope there is always a future.”
Through the last 10 years Copeland has been a fashion designer – her one goal has always remained – help young women find their confidence and to discover their talents, set goals, and most of all SPREAD love to others around them. This message is so simple yet often overlooked.
