Bello Machre was recently featured on CBS Baltimore with Meaningful Day member, Kelly Sigmon discussing her small business Kelly’s Homemades. Kelly’s Homemades specializes in selling all-natural bath bombs, sugar scrubs, body butters and much more at local farmer’s markets in the Mt. Airy area.
“We’re not in it to make a million dollars or anything, but it’s been a rewarding experience for her,” says Carolyn Sigmon, Kelly’s mother. “It gives her a purpose.”
Ashlie Pack, a Job Coach through Bello Machre’s Meaningful Day Services, has been a huge force in helping Kelly start her business. Through logo design, event planning, and overall business organization, Ashlie has truly embodied the Bello Machre mission of a lifetime of loving care.
Additionally featured in the CBS Baltimore story is Bello Machre’s President and CEO, Dr. Robert Ireland who adds, “I hope the same thing for Kelly that mom hopes for. That she’ll have a life filled with challenges and successes. That she’ll be surrounded by people who care about her.”
