A portion of every single sale (wholesale and retail!) is donated to a cause or organization that we believe is doing wonderful work to truly help others and make this world a better place. Below are the organizations to which we’ve given thus far:
FATHER’S HEART MINISTRIES
Why We Support FHM: We have a really big heart for the homeless and hungry. We can’t imagine not having a safe place to live, much less sleep, and we can’t imagine what it’s like to not know the next time you’ll eat and/or feed your loved ones. We despise injustice, and we HAVE to do all we can to help those in need. So, we don’t just donate part of our sales to FHM and volunteer on Saturdays – we actually hire those in need from FHM’s program because we know first hand that this organization doesn’t just care – they act.
“Who We Are: The Father’s Heart Ministries is a 501(c)3 incorporated in 1997 to fulfill our mission of helping people move from dependency to dignity and from poverty to prosperity. Needs are addressed through a variety of programs – Hunger Prevention – soup kitchen and food pantry where guests can access food stamps, free legal services from Open Hands legal Services and social service referrals – KidZone for children and their families, GED preparation, tutoring and ESL classes and our jog-training/mentoring program for teens, Alphabet Scoop. All of our programs are designed to fulfill our core values of unconditional love, acceptance, forgiveness and commitment.” Read More HERE!
DONATE HERE! We work personally with Father’s Heart staff by volunteering in the soup kitchen on Saturdays, and Pastor Perry works with us on hiring people in extreme hardship (poverty, homelessness, post-prison, etc) to work in the EKG Project kitchen. Not only does FHM need donations to support feeding hundreds of people in NYC in the soup kitchen, they need building renovations and support for their GED program, ESL program, Hair with Heart program and teen program Alphabet Scoop (helps get kids off the streets and gives them life and work experience). Please join us in DONATING NOW!!!
VOLUNTEER HERE! The soup kitchen could always use more volunteers on Saturday mornings from 8:30am – 11:30am at Father’s Heart Church in NYC’s East Village, and they could use volunteers at KidZone on Tuesday nights at the same location. But that’s not all. FHM has a whole host of programs (see above) that need talented individuals like you. Whatever your skills and passions – cooking, teaching/tutoring, legal work, designing, etc. – reach out and see how you can use your gifts to help others in need. YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!!!!!

Why We Support Safe Horizons: We’ve lost loved ones to domestic violence, and we’ve had (and do have) loved ones in our lives who are currently victims of domestic violence. We’ve actually had to call Safe Horizons on behalf of another, so this, too, is personal.
“Our Vision: Safe Horizon envisions a society free of family and community violence. We will lead the way by empowering victims of domestic violence, child abuse, sexual assault and human trafficking to move from crisis to confidence.” Read More HERE!
DONATE HERE! Safe Horizons is INCREDIBLE! They provide help and a safe haven for those who need it most – victims of domestic violence, child abuse, rap and sexual assault, human traffic, stalking, youth homelessness and other types of abuses. Please make sure they can ALWAYS provide the life-saving support people need and never turn away a soul by DONATING NOW!

STOMP OUT BULLYING™
Why We Support STOMP Out Bullying (TM): Because this organization is changing the life of children NOW, which fortunately for us makes the future of the entire world better. No child deserves to feel less than the perfect soul they are, and no child should learn, believe or act on the belief that abusing someone else for any reason is ok. Hurt people need help, and we believe that hurt people hurt people. So, we support STOMP because they are actively working to break the cycle of abuse on all fronts.
“STOMP Out Bullying™ is the leading national nonprofit dedicated to changing the culture for all students. It works to reduce and prevent bullying, cyberbullying, sexting and other digital abuse, educates against homophobia, LGBTQ discrimination, racism and hatred, and deters violence in schools, online and in communities across the country.

It teaches effective solutions on how to respond to all forms of bullying, as well as educating kids and teens in school and online.
