Charity of the Season 2
Timeless style and a heart for humanity, that’s why we’re here. Every purchase at Life Originelle donates 10% of proceeds to help provide food, clean drinking water, clothing and care for people, children and families in need. We’ve partnered to support the following organizations:
For the hungry, meals
Feeding America. In America, 1 in 9 people face hunger. For more than 40 years, Feeding America has responded to the needs of individuals struggling with food insecurity in this country. They’ve helped deliver over 4 billion meals through 200 food banks and 60,000 food pantry/meal programs.
For the thirsty, clean water
Life Water. The water crisis impacts 785 million people globally (1 in 10 people), with 1 in 4 people lacking access to a toilet. Since 1962, Life Water has brought clean drinking water, improved hygiene, better sanitation through faith based compassion for over 130,000 homes, 30 schools, hundreds of churches and 333 villages.
For those without clothing
We seasonally donate new / gently worn clothing, shoes, and school supplies for men, women and children in need through various organizations including Union Rescue Mission, Salvation Army and personal requests. For every clothing donation you send us, we will credit you $10 to shop at Life Originelle. Learn more here.
For those experiencing homelessness,
Care Bags. Because we each have crossed paths with one of the 560,000 people experiencing homelessness in the US, we’ve created our very own Care Bag. The bag is filled with hygiene products and socks, and features National Hotlines to resources for shelter, mental/physical health, safety and much more. We give each of our shoppers the option to receive the Care Bag themselves to Pay it Forward to someone experiencing homelessness near them, or to request us to give a bag on their behalf.
For children imprisoned in trafficking
Our Rescue. Our house brand Marandria donates 50% of proceeds exclusively to Our Rescue, an organization that has made significant impact rescuing and supporting thousands of children from sex trafficking and sexual exploitation throughout 28 countries and 26 U.S. states. Each operation costs between $50,000-$75,000 and saves anywhere between 1-50 children.
Acts of kindness are not just about donating. We remind ourselves and encourage you to daily help those around you in need. That’s human, that’s life and that’s when we’re our most original selves.
