Back in August, we announced our general commitment to:
We have made a commitment to allocate $.10 of every jar purchased to various charitable organizations that support foster and/or orphaned children.
Today, I am so excited to share the specific organization we are partnering with to honor this commitment.
147 Million Orphans
Way always leads to way.
I don’t talk much about my personal story here, but children without homes, love and the critical care they need are my passion. My husband and I are in the process of adopting our own little miracle baby. To say that our lives have been changed by love would be an understatement.
Late one night, I began researching various organizations who might share this same heart. I stumbled upon 147 Million Orphans. I learned a little more about who they are and then I randomly stumbled upon something that co-founder Suzanne Mayernick said:
My heart BREAKS for all of the children that have no one to call “mommy” or “daddy”.
Those are words that could have come straight from my mouth.
Way always leads to way.
I went back to the website, and there I learned about their Love+ 1 Projects. The names, which all include “love” and the actions which support those project missions fell completely in line with the way in which A Loving Spoon nut butters wants to give back.
147 Million Orphans do work in: Haiti, Uganda, Honduras and the United States. The organization was created to provide the critical needs of children impacted by the orphan crisis and living in poverty.
I reached out to them immediately, and plans were made.
Love+ 1 Food Project – Haiti
There are many Love+ 1 Projects that 147 Million Orphans supports. I chose the Love+1 Food Project – Haiti because it involves feeding children and at present time, is the only “Food Project” available. Here is more on this specific project:
There is a precious school in Haiti with over 600 students. The school has a lunch program that helps daily to provide for the nutritional needs of these students, and they are constantly in need of funding. For $6 per month, you can provide a basic lunch for one child or $72 for the year. Feed a child or the entire school – your gift provides for the critical needs of these students.
How A Loving Spoon nut butters is Supporting
We are setting aside 10c from each jar purchased, and those funds will go directly to our Love+ 1 Food Project.
Whether you purchase via our website, through a special event or at a local store (we are currently only available in 3 stores: The Daily Grind Espresso Shop in Waseca, MN, Van’s Health Foods in Livermore, CA and Arya Farm Produce in Mountain House/Tracy, CA), 10c of each jar will be donated.
Thank you for your continued support of A Loving Spoon nut butters.
While I do believe that A Loving Spoon nut butters is the most delicious and unique nut butter out there, I also believe that a product without purpose leaves a business without mission.
Our mission begins with love, and we can’t wait for this next phase!
