Kim long felt pulled to help address the water crisis, that affects 771 million people worldwide.
In April of 2021 we started spreading the word, and officially launched our partnership & commitment to Charity:Water. Kim started donating a portion of her proceeds from every sale & our community stepped up to the plate joining us in the fight for clean water. We have raised over $40,000 that has gone directly to funding water projects.
With many crisis' in our world we believe that water is where we should start & that by focusing our efforts we can have the greatest impact.
Providing clean & safe water gives people back their health, allows girls to stay in school & women to join the workforce, which all together fights poverty. Every $1 invested in improved water access and sanitation yields $4-12 in economic returns.
Along this journey our community as repeatedly blown us away. One such instance is our second water project, Meghan's well. Meghan spent her high school years fighting a particularly painful bone cancer undergoing surgery & chemo. Despite all she endured Meghan's biggest wish was to dig a well. She was granted a wish by the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Immediately Meghan knew she wanted to build a well. What 16 year old wants to give her wish, $5,000, to charity? Meghan's family talked into taking a vacation, then, COVID. 'Can I dig a well now?' Meghan donated her wish, and our community helped us more than double it. Now Meghan's well is complete in Burkina Faso.
