Charitable giving is an important part of my mission. For several years I have donated a percentage of my direct sales (not profits) to a rotating list of my favorite non-profits.
As of 2019 I expanded my list and now allow my patrons choose where that percentage of their purchase should go. If you do not have a preference, my current default organization is Roots of Peace.
Learn more about these organizations below:
Roots of Peace – This group removes landmines and explosive devices and assists farmers in replanting those fields with vineyards and orchards, helping them to gain a toehold on peace through sustainable agriculture in war-torn lands around the globe.
World Central Kitchen – Changing the world through the eyes of a chef. As chefs, our work in the kitchen improves health, increases education rates, provides career skills, and creates food businesses.
