You Gave the Gift of Giving 🤲

You did it!

On Giving Tuesday, we asked our customers to nominate nonprofits, one of which we promised to donate $1000. You, our awesome customers, inspired us with all of your suggestions! You nominated over 45 hardworking nonprofits, from all over the world, over Facebook, Instagram, and email!! Your overwhelming participation and inspiration showed us that we couldn’t donate to just one organization - we took your advice and decided to contribute to all of them! After team deliberation and research, we decided to donate $1000 to two organizations and $25 to the other 46. In total, we donated $3,150 to deserving organizations across the globe! 

We want to share information and links so YOU can donate too. We put together a list of the nominated organizations, but first, we wanted to tell you about the two organizations we donated $1,000 to! 

Havenly is an organization located in New Haven, CT, whose mission is to “build the community power of refugee and immigrant women through job training, education, and organizing. Havenly has a community cafe and homestyle kitchen, a fellowship program, and a collective coming soon! You can make donations to Havenly here.

The Wabanaki Alliance was formed in 2020 to educate Mainers about the need to secure the sovereignty of the tribes of Maine and celebrate the traditions and cultures of the Native Americans who have lived in Maine for thousands of years. You can donate to the Wabanaki Alliance here
