A percentage of Fig Tree Accessories profits are donated monthly to Save the Children www.savethechildren.org and World Vision www.worldvision.org to sponsor children in need in America and globally (we also individually sponsor children in America, Africa and Central America). Both of these organizations do amazing things here and globally. Below is more insight into what they do and why we support them.
About Save the Children:
“All children are most vulnerable, they are always among the first to respond and the last to leave. They ensure children's unique needs are met and their voices are heard. Theu deliver lasting results for millions of children, including those hardest to reach. They do whatever it takes for children — transforming their lives and the future we share — because they believe every child deserves a future.”
“Save the Children reaches America’s most vulnerable kids through early education, literacy, health and disaster preparedness programs — helping them to succeed in school and in life.”
“They also work in 120 countries helping the most vulnerable, hardest-to-reach children. Through pioneering health, education and protection programs, they create lasting, life-changing results.”
About World Vision:
“They serve the people in greatest need around the world, to relieve their suffering and to promote the transformation of their condition of life. They stand in solidarity in a common search for justice.”
“They seek to understand the situation of the poor and work alongside them toward fullness of life. They seek to facilitate an engagement between the poor and the affluent that opens both to transformation. They respect the poor as active participants, not passive recipients, in this relationship. They are people from whom others may learn and receive, as well as give. The need for transformation is common to all. Together we share a quest for justice, peace, reconciliation, and healing in a broken world.”
