Before being socially responsible was the popular thing to do, we determined it was going to be one of the ways we do business. We've always given part of our income away; we believe that we're responsible for helping those less fortunate than ourselves.
We partner with Heifer International to offer tangible hope to people around the world. Each quarter, a portion of our gross margin is contributed to help fund their work. Founded in 1944, Heifer International is a humanitarian assistance organization that works to end world hunger and protect the earth. Through livestock, training and "passing on the gift,"
Heifer has helped seven million families in more than 125 countries improve their quality of life and move toward greater self-reliance. They help transform communities because each project participant agrees to pass on the gift of animal offspring, training, or skills to another family in need.
