Welcome to
Classy Living Society

We are a unique women’s organization that believes in giving back to our community by partnering with small local charities as well as small businesses.

Our organization

CLASSY LIVING SOCIETY

Through the vision of its Founder, LaShanda Pitts, Classy Living Society was founded in 2013 as a multi-faceted women’s community service organization with a commitment to change the world!   With a hands-on approach to volunteerism, CLS partners with charities and nonprofit organizations and provides them with resources to carry out their mission and vision.  As a membership-driven private social club, CLS strongly promotes sisterhood and inspires women to connect with other like-minded women, by hosting high-end, exciting and premier events, galas and social functions throughout the year. Customized educational forums and workshops are fashioned for members and member business owners to empower, rejuvenate and promote growth.

Among many local and national recognitions and accolades, CLS has been recognized by Kasim Reed, Mayor of Atlanta, Georgia and is a proud recipient of the President’s Volunteer Service Award issued by President Barack Obama in 2016.

OUR CHARITY PARTNERSHIPS

By joining forces with charities and non-profit organizations across the United States, CLS is able to support the mission and vision of its partner organizations by providing volunteers, fundraising assistance and more.  These strategic partnerships serve to bring increased awareness to the causes that CLS and their partner organizations are passionate about – causes that affect local and global communities.  In addition, these important alliances will improve community outreach programs and give back campaigns and assist in funding projects and offering additional services to the community that our partners may not otherwise be able to undertake alone.  Increased brand recognition will be realized and CLS and its community partners will have the opportunity to share connections and other important resources.  If you are a non-profit or charity organization, we welcome the opportunity to connect with you!

OUR BUSINESS PARTNERSHIPS

CLS provides opportunities to facilitate development and growth in businesses through small business education support from within the organization, through networking, promotion and patronage and more!  CLS provides a number of forums in which businesses can advertise and promote and provide incentives within the organization to build an entirely new customer base!

OUR MEMBERS

“Everyone can be great, because everyone can serve.” – Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

CLS members are passionate about philanthropy.

As foot soldiers in the community, CLS members possess a deep-rooted desire to give back to the community.  As an organization, CLS is a hands-on partner with non-profit and charity organizations, giving member volunteers the opportunity to lend a hand up to those less fortunate and participate in a number of worthwhile give back initiatives.  We understand that we must be champions for the causes we are passionate about.  We understand that we have an awesome responsibility to be the change we want to see in our communities. Purpose, passion, persistence, professionalism and perseverance is the lifeblood of CLS volunteers.

SHADE is CLS’s very own line of lipsticks that has a give back initiative attached.  A portion of each lipstick purchased is donated to a number of non-profit organizations that are making a difference by bringing awareness to causes affecting the world.

In a world where humanity is plagued by resource inadequacy, abuse, hunger, war, sickness, lack and fear, it is time for us to address the challenges that impact our global society.  SHADE will bolster international character, representing the various colors of our international family coming together for a common cause.  SHADE will galvanize the social significance of bringing awareness to issues that desperately require our attention.  By wearing SHADE you will be taking a stand – a stand that will ignite the conversation, incite united support and demonstrate that we are the change we’d like to see in the world.

SHADE is designed to bring attention to our words, deeds, voices and call to action.  An incredible creation of beauty to highlight who we are, and the cause we represent… a movement that will change the world and mankind… one SHADE at a time.
