PLEASE CLICK HERE FOR INFORMATION ON OUR RECENT TRIP TO GHANA TO SEE HOW OUR CHARITABLE GIVING IS HAVING AN IMPACT ON THE WORLD.
We have several charitable organizations with whom we partner regularly to ensure this goal is met:
Located in Arizona, Treasures for Teachers offer teachers materials for their classrooms at low cost (often via free giveaways) in order to help them be more effective in their classrooms while helping them keep within their tight budgetary constraints. We have worked with Treasures for Teachers since 2011. We donate material valued at over $25,000 to Treasures for Teachers each year.
For the past 30 years, Books for Africa has been sending textbooks, library material, resource material, and tablets to Africa. By the end of the summer, they will have sent a shipment of material to every country on the continent! They are doing an outstanding job of ending the book famine in Africa with the goal of helping them through better education. Last year, we donated material valued at over $500,000 to Books for Africa and look forward to strengthening our partnership with them in the coming years.
RISE helps create jobs for people with disabilities. We have donated books to them regularly over the last year and plan to continue to do so.
Arizona Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired seeks to enhance the lives of blind and visually impaired individuals in Arizona. All material that we recycle goes straight to ACBVI, where our materials provide revenue for the organization, as well as job training and employment opportunities for those serviced by this organization.
Compassion International seeks to provide education, medical care, food, and other crucial assistance to children and families in third world countries through child sponsorship and development of child development centers. Last year, we contributed toward a project to relocate and build two churches and child development centers in Bangladesh, after they had been destroyed by monsoonal rains, and resulting landslides and mass flooding. One center was submerged under the flood water for days and the other was located at the foot of a hill and stream which overflows frequently. Just this year, the building sustained flash flooding, and a nearby landslide took many lives. It is not strong enough to support any future landslides or flooding, so they relocated the entire church and center out of the flood and mud’s reach so it could be sustainable long-term. Our goal is to singlehandedly fund at least one of these priority projects per year for Compassion.
