A few months ago we mentioned that we will be supporting a few charities.
We are proud to announce that we made our first payments to:
- Two Sisters http://www.twosisters.org.za/
Two Sisters is a small charity in South Africa started by an ex anti-apartheid activist. There was a great movie about the founder’s life during apartheid – worth watching. This charity helps AIDS orphans.
- Khan Academy http://www.khanacademy.org/
The Khan Academy aims to provide a “… free world-class education to anyone anywhere.” How can you argue with that?
- Moholoholo http://www.moholoholo.co.za/
Moholoholo provides “… a haven for the rehabilitation and care of abandoned, injured and poisoned wildlife.”
- Cancer Research http://www.cancer.org/
Speaks for itself.
- Off The Mat Into The World http://offthematintotheworld.org/
Off The Mat Into The World uses the “… power of yoga to inspire conscious, sustainable activism and ignite grassroots social change. We do this by facilitating personal empowerment through leadership trainings, fostering community collaboration, and initiating local and global service projects.”
- Charity Water http://www.charitywater.org/
“charity: water is a non-profit organization bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations. 100% of public donations directly fund water projects. “
These payments were for monies owed to them from our customers for October 2011, November 2011, December 2011.
We like charities that have big impact with small overhead. We also have a soft spot for charities that help animals and children (who doesn’t?).
If you would like to suggest a charity that we should support feel free to email us. This current mix of charities may be added to or changed over time.
