“We make a living by what we get but we make a life by what we give.”
Your ideas, your vision, your dreams. When you invest in your future through our work together, you’re also creating meaningful change in the world. Because with every package you purchase, a percentage is donated to our chosen charitable partners each year.
By supporting non-profits whose missions and work we believe in, we’re helping to empower others – both domestically and abroad – by providing fundamental human needs like healthcare, access to education and dignified work for people who haven’t been given the same opportunities many of us have. So when you invest in changing your life by working with us, you are also contributing to changing your (our!) world.
Here are just a few of the organizations we’ve supported over the years with the aim of empowering others – especially women and children worldwide who are living in poverty – to improve their lives and the lives of others in their communities:
