Donating up to 1% of revenue
Because we are a start up, we are supporting other micro businesses through Kiva. We also have a soft spot for bears and elephants. In the future we may give back to the professional community through scholarships to advance professional skills, etc. It will be up to our whole team to decide what we do.
Kiva is a non-profit organization with a mission to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty. Leveraging the internet and a worldwide network of microfinance institutions, Kiva lets individuals lend as little as $25 to help create opportunity around the world.

FREE THE BEARS
We first came across “Free the Bears” when we heard how they were saving bears from a lifetime of being locked in a cage not much bigger than they were. These bears are locked up for life, simply to have their bile farmed for traditional medicine. Since then, Free the Bears, has provided support to a wide range of projects across the globe; from the rehabilitation of orphaned bear cubs in the Russian Far East to surveying wild Spectacled bears in Ecuador.
DAVIS SHELDRICK WILDLIFE TRUST
Born from one family’s passion for Kenya and its wilderness, the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust is today the most successful orphan-elephant rescue and rehabilitation program in the world and one of the pioneering conservation organisations for wildlife and habitat protection in East Africa.
