This is your half way through the month update. I didn't share this here in the first place though, my bad. Let me backpedal a bit.
We believe in sustainable business, but we also do believe charity has its place and is important. As such 10% of everything you purchase from Fair Earth always goes back to something local. But when we hit a goal in sales something specific will go back to a global cause. Sometimes big, other times small, always world changing.
This month's goal is $500 in sales, and that's still a pretty good ways away, hence why we're living on a prayer. We decided to make our goal ambitious, but not impossible. Once we reach a point where we are regularly making that goal we'll up it from there, for now we'll stick with $500 and see how it goes. Eventually we will reach that $500 regularly and donate something specific more often than not, so even if we don't reach this goal this month we'll have the chance to donate it again at a later date. Every purchase no matter how big or how small still have life changing impacts and helps us reach our monthly goal.
For the month of May, if we hit our sales goal we'll be sponsoring a field trip for a child in the Kibera Slum in Africa. It's one of the largest slums in the world and the field trip we can sponsor does more than just educate and allow the child to have fun, it gets the child out of the slums for a day. Your purchase can help support a child see a new world and learn in a new way even if it's just for a day. We'll never know what kind of lasting impact one day can have.
