GIVING BACK IS HOW WE GO FORWARD: MEXICALI BLUES IS RENEWING OUR COMMITMENT TO CORPORATE PHILANTHROPY IN 2017

Jan 4, 2017

At Mexicali Blues, we’re spending January focusing on renewal, with a magical, mindful, month-long recalibration of our bodies, minds, homes and relationships. And we want you to come along!

The beginning of the year is when we take inventory—not just of the world goods in our stores and warehouse, but of our progress and our goals. In all of 2016, nothing gave us as much joy as giving back through our corporate philanthropy program. Mexicali Blues donates a full 1% of sales every single year to support the countries we buy from, the communities we live in and the causes we believe in. And you helped us do it! In 2016, 1% of your purchases donated, sponsored or supported:

  • ALS Benefit Dinner
  • Alzheimer’s Association
  • Amazing Place Adventures
  • American Heart Association
  • American Lung Association
  • Bangor YMCA
  • Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital
  • Beacon Chapter #202

It’s awesome and it’s amazing, and it’s the way we want to feel all year long. We’re renewing our focus on philanthropy in 2017 by supporting projects that power community development in Thailand, Guatemala and Nepal, by contributing to the fight against cancer, and by continuing to support schools, the arts, health initiatives and environmental action right here at home. So stay tuned for updates on how your shopping sends good vibes where they’re needed most all year long!
