Rooted in Kindness, the world’s largest goat milk skincare brand celebrates nurses for the inherently Kind work they do every day

SCHENECTADY, N.Y., Jan. 6, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Beekman 1802, a brand rooted in Kindness with products powered by the science of nutrient-dense goat milk, is excited to announce ” Nurses First,” a new program that celebrates hardworking nurses in 2023 with Kind surprises, special products, Kindness Grants and additional delights throughout the year. These Kind heroes share the brand’s ideology of being Kind to everyone they meet and treat, and always put others before themselves. They are the true definition of Kindness and for this reason and so many more, they deserve to be recognized and celebrated.
