Mahatma Gandhi

Nearly 1/2 of the world’s population — more than 3 billion people — live on less than $2.50 a day. More than 1.3 billion live in extreme poverty — less than $1.25 a day.

In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.

Jesus

The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and critically. Intelligence plus character- that is the goal of true education.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

As of 2013, 21.8 million children under 1 year of age worldwide had not received the three recommended doses of vaccine against diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis.

Education breeds confidence. Confidence breeds hope. Hope breeds peace.

Confucius

More than 750 million people lack adequate access to clean drinking water. Diarrhea caused by inadequate drinking water, sanitation, and hand hygiene kills an estimated 842,000 people every year globally, or approximately 2,300 people per day.

At the end of life we will not be judged by how many diplomas we have received, how much money we have made, how many great things we have done. We will be judged by “I was hungry, and you gave me something to eat, I was naked and you clothed me. I was homeless, and you took me in.”

Mother Teresa

WATER

Access to the basic living essentials – clean water, proper sanitation, and adequate housing are vital components in the fight against poverty.

MEDICAL CARE

From vaccines to family planning, proper medical care makes a tangible difference in the lives of those we are assisting.

EDUCATION

We are passionate about education, because we believe it is the single biggest factor in changing the future for generations to come.

FAIR TRADE

Fair trade is fair, sustainable, and responsible to both producers and the environment. We can be conscious consumers and empower workers on a global scale.

Be a Conscious Consumer – Shop Fair Trade

Fair trade moves us toward a world in which all producers can enjoy secure and sustainable livelihoods.

One of my favorite stores in Lakeland. Unique handmade gifts and jewelry for a worthy cause.
