If you haven’t caught on by now, we’re big fans of charities! They’re the ones working hard to support the causes that are near and dear to our hearts. We donate at least 5% of net sales to non-profit organizations that help our environment, country and communities.
As connoisseurs of charities, we have created a check-list to be sure the charities reflect our beliefs. They must do at least one of the following: work to improve the environment, increase energy independence, support military veterans, promote efforts to increase global peace, or support health care, education and/or job training. Wait, there’s more (like we said, we have high standards): the charity must demonstrate that it is well managed and uses its charitable dollars effectively; its fundraising and general administrative costs compared to its program expenditures must be reasonable; the charity must be able to demonstrate a history of success; and the charity must be recognized as a 501(c)(3) charity by the Internal Revenue Service.
If you have any charities you would like to recommend, please email their name, website address and songs of praises to firstname.lastname@example.org
