Nonprofit Partners

Verified badasses in the world of doing good.

At Fresh Words Market, we decided long ago to fuse our two passions.

Create awesome art.

And use them to help bolster life for those who have yet to experience its wonder.

Since 2012, we have partnered with — and raised funds for — several nonprofits worldwide that are making positive differences in people’s lives. We do skilled pro bono service as well as donate at least 10% (and oftentimes have given 100%) of proceeds to our nonprofit partners. With your help, we’ve been able to expand our reach from Haiti to Mexico to Kenya to Bangladesh and throughout the United States.

Here are the following organizations we’ve supported:

Free2Luv

An anti-bullying organization and an award-winning national nonprofit based in Seattle dedicated to rockin’ individuality, celebrating equality, spreading kindness and standing up to bullying through arts and entertainment. Free2Luv empowers, engages and enlightens youth globally to know that they are perfect just the way they are and they can use their voices for good.

15% of your Fresh Words Market purchases through October will benefit Free2Luv.

Future Fortified

A Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition campaign that gives millions of women and children around the world access to essential nutrients they need to grow and thrive.

We were able to raise enough money to provide nutrients for over 5,000 children in Kenya for an entire month. We’ve also partnered with Future Fortified for a similar campaign in Bangladesh.

Global Family Philanthropy

Based in Scottsdale, Ariz., Global Family Philanthropy is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping poor families and children in Haiti and the U.S. through volunteer service and fundraising, we work to empower families, care for the elderly and provide children access to shelter, education, nutrition and a loving community of support.

We have donated more than $5,000 in proceeds and services to GFP since 2010. We have also taken two trips with the organization to Haiti, helping it build its non-adoption orphanage and a soccer field for the orphanage’s children.

Heshima Kenya

Specializes in identifying and protecting unaccompanied and separated refugee children and youth, especially girls, young women and their children living in Nairobi, Kenya. Their shelter, education and community outreach services, coupled with local resources and the refugee community, empower this population to live healthy lives. By providing resources for long-term support, these girls and young women become catalysts for strengthening networks creating sustainable change within the local and global communities.

Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America

Founded in 2004, IAVA is the leading post-9/11 veteran empowerment organization (VEO) with the most diverse and rapidly growing membership in America, receiving the highest rating – four-stars – from Charity Navigator, America’s largest charity evaluator. IAVA addresses critical issues facing new veterans and their families, including mental health injuries, a stretched VA system, inadequate health care for female veterans and GI Bill educational benefits. Through education, advocacy and community building, IAVA strives to create a country that honors and supports veterans of all generations.

FWM continues to donate 10% of each purchase of our Freedom Series to IAVA.

Lift

A national organization in the U.S., LIFT’s mission is to help lift people out of poverty for good by helping families build strong personal, social and financial foundations. LIFT has offices in Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C.

We have donated more than $3,000 in proceeds and services to help the organization #LIFT4Good.

Melel Xojobal

An organization in San Cristobal de Las Casas, Mexico whose mission is to fight for health and human rights for the under-served indigenous Mayan child population.

We had paid a visit to the organization and were humbled to see the families who directly benefited from our donation.

One Mother to Another Initiative

A campaign created by sister company Children Inspire Design. Every product in Children Inspire Design’s One Mother to Another line is created by hands from mothers in impoverished areas in Mexico, Rwanda and Haiti. The work in making the products offer creative expression. The money they earn through fair trade of these products offer economic opportunity, which provides independence and a lesson to their children, especially girls, that women can become strong and successful, that they can control their own future.

When you buy one product, we buy two more from them. That gives them the ability to buy food, clothing, opportunity for their children. It also gives them a chance to grow their business, to invite more women to work. Ultimately, to take more power.

PEACE

PEACE increases educational and economic opportunities that support an improved quality of life by working hand-in-hand with communities surrounding the Bay of Banderas (Puerto Vallarta) and beyond.

Our donations and resources helped redesign an alternative school and community center in Punta Minta, Mexico.
