Long before entrepreneur Vicky Tsai had the idea for her cult beauty line, Tatcha, she knew that when she started a company, giving would have to be part of its DNA. That spirit of generosity only grew when she read John Wood’s 2006 book, Leaving Microsoft to Change the World, which describes the executive’s impetus to educate children through the organization Room to Read. “It really inspired me,” remembers Tsai, who was working as a Starbucks brand manager at the time. “I was always passionate about girls’ education, but even more enthused when I saw studies about how educating girls has a positive effect on economies and on the sustainability of communities.” In 2009, when Tsai launched Tatcha, a brand based on geishas’ beauty rituals, she made it her mission to…
