Our Monthly Give | January

Putting dollars where our hearts are

We’re unlikely business people in so many ways, and we’ve always said we’re values-driven first and business-y second. We want to do good for the people who use our products and to inspire change. That’s why we donate one percent or more of our monthly sales to causes that are important to us. We give in the following areas—Earth & Nature, Social Justice, Animal Rescue—and rotate causes monthly, so we can respond to urgent need.

THIS IS THE MONTHLY GIVE FOR JANUARY

WIRES Australian Wildlife Rescue

The situation in Australia (bushfires are consuming 15 million acres of land) is heartbreaking on so many levels. Of course there is the loss of both animal and human life that is happening in an immediate sense, but in a broader sense, this crisis points to our continued inability as a society to respond to our global climate emergency. As a company, we’re going to continue to find ways to help. One percent of January sales will go to WIRES, an organization that’s on the frontlines of wildlife rescue in Australia.
