A few months ago, we were brainstorming ways to say "thank you" to our longtime customers.
Some brands give out swag, but we wanted to do something different. After all, part of our ethos is to reduce waste.
Our team came up with the idea of donating $100 to a nonprofit in honor of our customers when they hit five orders. We saw this as a fun way to say thank you while giving back to communities and causes that are meaningful to us.
Everyone on our team picked an issue that's important to them and chose a nonprofit to support. By each picking a different nonprofit, we also thought we could give customers some insight into who we are outside of work.
Customers can also nominate a nonprofit of their choice if they prefer.

James Eichner, Co-Founder & CSO
About: "We are a movement of artists, musicians, food makers, and music lovers on a mission to end hunger in underserved communities nationwide."
From James: "Conscious Alliance supports communities in crisis through hunger relief and youth empowerment programs. My first real internship after college was with Conscious Alliance and it was an incredible experience. Today’s youth are tomorrow’s leaders and right now, 1 in 6 children in the US don’t have reliable access to food."
Pete Kemper, Director of Sales
About: "At No Kid Hungry, that's our promise. If it sounds simple, that's because it is. That doesn’t mean ending childhood hunger is easy. We know what works, and we’ve made extraordinary progress for kids and families. But the job isn’t done, and won’t be done until we’ve met that promise and every single child in America has the food they need to grow up healthy and strong."
From Pete: "With the goal to end child hunger in America, No Kid Hungry devises clever ways to feed the youth, including school breakfasts, summer meals, and after-school meals. Their nutrition education programs educate parents and their children with interactive grocery store tours, hands-on cooking classes, smartphone apps, and other resources – all free."
Galen Kuney, Supply Chain Manager
About: "The Humane Society of the United States complements the work of local groups and animal rescue leagues by focusing on national-level issues like ending the puppy mill industry, strengthening cruelty laws and eliminating large-scale animal abuses. We also run programs and spearhead campaigns designed to ease the burden on local sheltering groups."
From Galen: "I'm a HUGE animal lover and I'm passionate about protecting our animal friends, regardless of how many legs (if any) or wings they have. I support the Humane Society because they're willing to 'fight the big fights' to help combat animal cruelty and end suffering for all animals. Everyone needs someone to have their back, and that includes our furry, feathery, and scaly friends!"
Alex Ammons, Sales & Marketing Manager
