American Friends of Whistler

  • 2002-2019

American Friends of Whistler (AFOW) was an American charitable organization set up to enhance the Whistler community and foster greater understanding and friendship between Canadians and Americans, raising and distributing funds for health and human services, culture and the arts, and the environment and outdoor recreation in the Whistler community. Founded in July 2002 by a small group of Americans who spend time in Whistler as second home-owners, the group has donated millions of dollars to local Whistler non-profit organizations registered as a non-profit charity in Washington State. In 2019, the board made the decision to cease operations due to trouble being an all-volunteer organization keeping administrative costs under 3%. Former members decided to continue to be active in supporting the Whistler community through charitable giving as individuals, and maintain the AFOW website as a way to facilitate the continuing of charitable giving for the Whistler area.

Bonne Bell Cosmetics

  • US-OH-BBC-001
  • Entidade coletiva
  • 1927-

Bonne Bell is a cosmetics company aimed for teens. The company was best known for its line of astringents and cleansers named "10-0-6." In the 1970s, they expanded into a popular range of lip balms called Lip Smackers which became the company's signature product. Bonne Bell was founded in 1927 in Lakewood, Ohio by cosmetics salesman Jesse Bell, who named it after his daughter. Bell made his products on a hot plate in his basement and then sold his skin care products door to door. In the 1950s, the company pursued the outdoor market and developed sunscreens, heavy-duty moisturizers, and lip protectors for skiers, hikers, and joggers. In the 1960s, Bonne Bell sponsored the US Ski Team and many other amateur and professional sports events. In 1972, the company sponsored 10K marathons in 15 cities and many charitable races. By 1985, the business had grown into a $50 million enterprise. In 2007, the company largely relocated to Australia, and reduced American domestic representation. The relocation was largely at the request of the Vice President of Ideation, Hilary Bell, to the then CMO, James Ward, in a bid to globalize the "Smackers" Brand. By 2009, the company had returned to the United States. In January 2015, the company announced that the Bonne Bell and Lip Smackers brands would be acquired by Markwins International, though Bonne Bell will continue to distribute other brands in Europe, Asia, and Australia under the name Bell Family Brands. In accordance, the company also announced the partial closure of its headquarters, effective March 2015
