Global Giving, Sharing Smiles

Like our co-founders, Pete and Kim Erskine, our charitable giving is generous, deeply rooted in Maine connections, and travels all around the world.  We fund the causes we care about, and choose the organizations we support carefully. We want to provide the skills, support and resources needed to sustain long-term success in every single community where we do business whether it’s a water project in Nepal or an educational scholarship in Maine.

1% of Every Purchase

1% of every purchase goes to support organizations that do a world of good... and in times of need we give more.

 

These organizations help provide homes for families in need in Guatemala, safe environments for at-risk young girls in Northern Thailand, and rebuild schools in Nepal amongst other projects.

 

Since 1988, we have given over $600k to great causes around the globe thanks to your support!
