I feel it is important to give and help others. 15% of all gross sales are given to support the following organizations and the great work they do.
Halendid – Iceland National Park: All over the world too much priceless nature has been sacrificed for development, often falsely labeled as sustainable. Rain forests have been cut, waterfalls damned, land eroded, lakes and oceans polluted, and the climate altered. In Iceland, the Kárahnjúkar power plant has become a symbol for the destruction that threatens human existence on this earth. It is our duty to protect Icelandic nature for future generations to enjoy. Iceland’s Highlands make up the largest remaining area of untouched wilderness in Europe. This incredible place is not just a treasure that belongs to us, it belongs to the world as a whole. Nowhere else can we find another Lake Mývatn, Þjórsárver wetlands, Sprengisandur, Skaftafell or Lake Langisjór. We now have a unique opportunity to turn the Highlands into a national park by bill of law to be adopted by the parliament. Thus all plans for power lines, road construction and/or other man-made structures which would fragment valuable landscapes of the highlands will belong to history.
Business Council for Peace, Inc: Bpeace is the nonprofit network of business volunteers who work with entrepreneurs in violence-affected communities to scale their businesses, create significant employment for all and expand the economic power of women. More Jobs Mean Less Violence.®
Long Island Cares, Inc: Founded by the late Harry Chapin, Long Island Cares brings together all available resources for the benefit of the hungry on Long Island, and provides to the best of our ability for the humanitarian needs of our community. We provide food when and where it’s needed, while promoting self-sufficiency and public education.
Heifer International: We empower families to turn hunger and poverty into hope and prosperity – but our approach is more than just giving them a handout. Heifer links communities and helps bring sustainable agriculture and commerce to areas with a long history of poverty. Our animals provide partners with both food and reliable income, as agricultural products such as milk, eggs and honey can be traded or sold at market. When many families gain this new sustainable income, it brings new opportunities for building schools, creating agricultural cooperatives, forming community savings and funding small businesses.
World Wildlife Fund: WWF’s mission is to conserve nature and reduce the most pressing threats to the diversity of life on Earth. Our vision is to build a future in which people live in harmony with nature. The world’s leading conservation organization, WWF works in 100 countries and is supported by 1.1 million members in the United States and close to 5 million globally. WWF’s unique way of working combines global reach with a foundation in science, involves action at every level from local to global, and ensures the delivery of innovative solutions that meet the needs of both people and nature.
