The Dream Fund aimed to provide financial grants to black-owned businesses who demonstrated how their services and offerings support their community; how they have positively adapted their business models in recent times and how the funds will support their staff and elevate their future business goals.
“SheaMoisture was built on the core belief that commerce is the route to social and economic empowerment. Every purchase of SheaMoisture helps us invest in programs that support the black community everywhere in the world. Here in Canada, we have focused our efforts on supporting black-owned businesses, ensuring they have the tools and resources they need to succeed in these challenging times. We are delighted to have the opportunity to share our Dream Fund winners’ inspiring stories and celebrate the talent, resilience, and success of Canada’s Black community” says Unilever Marketing Manager, Dennis Chua.

SheaMoisture, committed to serving those who have been underserved in beauty, is the enduring and beautiful legacy of Sofi Tucker. Widowed with five children at 19, Grandma Sofi supported her family by selling handcrafted shea butter soaps and other creations in the village market in Sierra Leone. Sofi became known as a healer who shared the power of shea and African black soap with families throughout the countryside. She handed down her recipes to grandson Richelieu Dennis, who founded SheaMoisture and incorporated her wisdom into the brand's hair and skin care innovations. SheaMoisture products continue to be made in culturally authentic ways to preserve their efficacy, benefits and rich history. Collections are formulated with natural ingredients, and shea butter is ethically-sourced from 15 women's co-ops in Northern Ghana as part of parent company Sundial Brands' purpose-driven Community Commerce business model. Sundial and SheaMoisture were built on the core belief that only commerce can bring true economic independence to communities and empower women to break the cycles of poverty. The company directly reinvests in the communities it serves by creating economic opportunities for women and other minority entrepreneurs in its ecosystem.
