Why We Help
“We are waves of the same sea, leaves of the same tree, flowers of the same garden.” ~Seneca
As challenging as life can be, we must also take stock in our blessings, for there are others for whom our struggles would seem like luxuries. We firmly believe that helping others is essential to bettering ourselves and that empathy is one of the greatest qualities in a person.
Who We Help
“Water, water, everywhere, and not a drop to drink…” - Samuel Taylor Coleridge
How far are you from a faucet right now?
Twenty feet? Less than 100 yards? In West Africa, a child has to walk an average distance of 3.75 miles per day to gather clear, drinkable water. It’s a hardship that simply should not exist and we are working with Set Free Alliance to eradicate this problem in India and West Africa.
By drilling a well deep enough into the aquifer to run consistently throughout both rainy and dry seasons, the SFA Water of Life Initiative can transform an entire village of 750-1,500 people. Once a well is drilled, children have time to return to school - not to mention the general health improvement for everyone else in the village. It’s a keystone event that serves as a foundation for a village’s progress over the next 50 years.
We recognize and are inspired by these people’s perseverance through hardship and are honored to partner with Set Free Alliance’s Water of Life Initiative to ensure that preventable hardships are, in fact, prevented.
How We Help
“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” - Winston Churchill
That’s why we have committed 10% of our net profits to SFA, a non-profit local to our area, to assist in their good work throughout the world. We strongly believe that having access to sanitary, drinkable water is a basic human right.
