For the team here at Your Tea, our Charitea program is the most rewarding aspect of our company.
Being able to give back so directly and generously means the world to us and we feel it is the least we can do.
In 2014 alone, we donated over $65,000 to a number of well deserving Charities. This would obviously not be possible without your help... and for this we sincerely thank you.
We made sure to donate to a number of charities around the world which supported a wide range of causes. Trust us, it has been a very difficult process each month to choose!
Now - to the exciting news...
Over time, having watched our Charitea program grow and evolve - we've decided to dedicate a set amount of funds per month to some charities.
Why? Because we want to help make change on an ongoing basis and more often than not, charities get by week by week with uncertainty as to whether their work can continue due to lack of funds.
This ongoing support we are able to offer is something we are very excited about and can't wait to sink our teeth into.
Stay tuned for when we reveal the two charities we will be supporting through 2015 consistently.
Of course, we will also make room to donate to causes in dire needs and as a result, will continue to search high and low for charities in need of a decent donation to keep their charity afloat.
Once again thank you for your support and providing us with the ability to maintain 'Charitea' each month.
Much Love, Your Tea
Philanthropy trumps the internal pleasure of even the tastiest cup of tea and here at Your Tea, we are passionate about giving back to the world.
As such, we are beyond excited to announce that at the end of each month, a percentage of every individual sale from our website www.yourtea.com will be donated to two chosen charities.
This monthly lump sum derived from sales will be split in half and donated to two carefully selected charities for that particular month.
Via this act, we aim to assist a number of charities directly whilst also raising awareness for a number of issues the chosen charities will represent.
Your Tea is a worldwide organization and given this, we will be selecting a number of charities around the world. Considerable time and research is taken in selecting the charities to ensure both the donated funds are being adequately spent and further more, that their charitable efforts are legitimate.
With many charities in equal need of assistance, rest assured the selection process is not easy! We welcome you along this journey. At the close of each month you will receive an update educating you on the charity your purchase assisted.
Without your help, our donations would simply not be possible and for this, we thank-you from the bottom of our hearts.
Let’s raise our mugs to making a difference in this world... one sip at a time.
This month we are so happy to be donating to Children's Fortress Africa! Our donation will be used to pay yearly tuition for high school kids in Kenya. The Government of Kenya provides primary education to students, but high school education is not free. The average annual tuition fee for high school is $300. With 43% of the population living on just $1.25 AU a day, it means many kids miss out on an education that could break the poverty cycle in their lives. We hope our donation towards education will help empower high school kids in Kenya to change their own world.
We wouldn't be able to make these donations without the help of all of our loyal and loving customers - so from the bottom of our hearts thank you for making this possible.
At the conclusion of the month we will send an email out to all of our e-letter subscribers with the exact amount donated and what was done with the funds. Children's Fortress Africa is a non profit organisation and we are very happy to be assisting them with one of many amazing projects they are working on.
Our second chosen charity for the month of January is the Lighthouse Foundation.
Lighthouse Foundation provides homeless young people who come from backgrounds of long term neglect and abuse with a home, a sense of family and around the clock therapeutic care. Through their Lighthouse experience, the young people heal, learn again to relate to others and rebuild their lives.
We will see the money donated for the Lighthouse Foundation spent directly in areas in need.
Stay tuned for the wrap up outlining where our donation was used, including descriptions and photos of what our donations were provided for.
We hope you're just as excited as we are with our above future endeavours and aims.
