Purchase with a Purpose.
In July of 2017, Dragonfly Effect Naturals visited Brown's Town, Jamaica to take part in a camp hosted by our partner Love Unlimited Foundation.
Thanks to purchases made by customers, Dragonfly Effect was able to donate school supply kits to 100+ students at Brown's Town Model Basic School.
This is our first of MANY giving trips to come!!
