Our incredible charitable partners are working tirelessly to bring sustainable solutions to communities around the world. In their own way, each organization is working to combat issues we are facing as a globe including providing access to clean water, access to nutritious food, and replenishing our forest. Here is a summary of their approach to this incredible work.
WaterAid is working in 35 countries, including the US and Canada, to increase access to safe and clean water for sanitization and good hygiene. Their mission is to “transform the lives of the poorest and most marginalized people by improving access to safe water, sanitation and hygiene.” WaterAid understands the reality that taps, wells, and pipes that would typically deliver clean water don’t exist in many countries. To aid the communities, they use donations to set up practical and sustainable safe water, sanitization and good hygiene to meet their needs.

Second Harvest is Canada’s largest food rescue organization, providing over 62,000 meals a day to people in need. They are trying to combat the environmental and social issue of food waste each day by working through the whole supply chain and capturing excess food before it goes to the landfill. They run multiple programs to feed those in need in their communities as well as children in city camps. Feeding those in need is just as important to them as educating them on the importance of good nutrients.
One Tree Planted is a 1% for the planet company working to restore our forests. With each dollar donated, a tree is planted. Reforesting is essential to clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, strengthen the biodiversity in the area and improve our health and the health of our planet by capturing the carbon dioxide.
