3 WAYS TO DO GOOD WITH MEXICALI BLUES
We’re working with the Guatemala Housing Alliance (GHA) on their mission to build safe, secure, sustainable homes and provide schooling for hardworking families living in severe poverty in the Guatemalan Highlands.
One of GHA’s most empowering programs teaches women in the villages how to bead beautiful bracelets. This allows the women to work from home while continuing to care for their families. In a world where a very hard day’s work in the fields earns only $3, the proceeds from these beautiful bracelets really makes a difference.
When you purchase these bracelets from Mexicali Blues, they make an even BIGGER difference! We send 100% of the proceeds from our Guatemalan beaded bracelets right back to the communities that created them. When you buy one of these beautiful bracelets, you support GHA as it provides income and builds the homes these villages need to thrive.
We’re helping our friends at the dZi Foundation build a brand-new school in earthquake-ravaged Nepal—this time, in the remote region of Rok, Solukhumbu!
Our customers have come through for the people of Nepal ever since the terrible earthquakes of 2015 and we know we can count on you now. Donate today, and Mexicali Blues will match your contribution dollar for dollar—up to $25,000. The #MexicaliMatch will double your donation and help the dZi Foundation rebuild the Janajagriti School twice as fast.
Our friends at the dZi Foundation work hand-in-hand with locals over long periods of time to rebuild the things that will restore and strengthen communities: bridges, healthcare centers, and schools. They are doing good work but need resources like building supplies.
What’s more fun—getting the perfect gift, or giving the perfect gift?
At Mexicali, there’s no choosing between the two; every single time you get something from our stores or website, you’re also giving back.
We give 1% of all our sales to good causes right here in Maine and all around the world through our World of Goods program. So 1% of every single thing you buy, whether you keep it or wrap it up for someone you love, is always gifted to people and organizations who really need it. Every single time.
