We're passionate about our hats, but we know there is also a big wide world out there and much more to life. We know that we're privileged to have had a good education. This has allowed us to grow a successful business. To live lives full of joy, without worrying about where our next meal will come from. Or where we will sleep tonight. We wholeheartedly believe that every child should have access to good education, and that providing this can change their lives.
As a very minimum we give 5% of our profits to charities every year. The main causes we love and support on a regular basis are:
Alalay provides a loving home and opportunities to street children in Bolivia. It gets real results, with many of its alumni now living full and productive lives.
Many Hopes has a vision to change Kenya by raising a generation of children who will lead with justice and care, and in doing so eradicate the causes of extreme poverty.
Compassion International works in many countries providing hope and love to many children. We love what they are doing in Ecuador (the home of the Panama hat)!
