The Entrepreneur Behind SinglesSwag, Jonathan Beskin, Donates More Than 18,000 Beauty Products to Junior Achievement of South Florida
For Immediate Release
BROWARD COUNTY, FL — Jonathan Beskin — the CEO and founder of SinglesSwag and author of “The Least Likely Millionaire” — recently donated more than 18,000 beauty and fashion products to Junior Achievement of South Florida (JA). The donation included jewelry, skin care products, fashion accessories and cosmetics, which will be distributed at upcoming JA signature events, as a “thank you” to dedicated JA volunteers and to program students.
JA serves more than 74,000 students annually by teaching financial literacy, entrepreneurship and work readiness development. Some of JA’s programs — such as JA’s Career Bound Program, Pre-Apprenticeship Program and Summer Internship Program — help prepare young adults for the professional workforce, which requires students to be well dressed and presentable to potential employers. Beskin’s donations will be a welcomed surprise for JA’s programs.
“JA’s mission is to bridge the gap between school and the workforce by preparing students for the realities of the world-at-large. Jonathan’s donations will help students feel confident, as they pursue the path toward adulthood,” said JA CEO and President Laurie Sallarulo. “We are grateful to entrepreneurs and philanthropists like Jonathan who use their resources to help our youth.”
Beskin, who publicly shares about his early struggles with mental health before becoming a millionaire, is a fantastic example of an underdog embracing adversity to become a recognized success. His first company, a women’s lifestyle subscription box, went from a pre-revenue idea launched with just $2,000 of his own savings, to earning more than $60 million in revenue in under five years. Now, Beskin’s company SinglesSwag and Paradise Delivered is ranked one of the Top 10 fastest growing companies in Florida by Inc. Magazine and has shipped more than 2 million boxes to more than 60 countries. His book “The Least Likely Millionaire” mentors readers to harness a healthy obsession, ignore the naysayers, and embrace the path-less-traveled.
“I hope to inspire young people who feel like they don’t fit the mold of a successful entrepreneur,” said Beskin. “You don’t need a Harvard MBA or a rich family, you just need a desire to change your life.”
Beskin’s message resonates with the mission of JA to inspire young people to go after their dreams.
