Charity Partners

Most of the organizations I support have a significant impact on the African-American community. Some of my charity partners have been supported by donations in addition to signature bracelets (see photos below) and others have been supported by monetary donations only. Here are a few of the many organizations I’ve been able to contribute to because of the generosity of customers like you. Please check them out and support them!

shikuri

Through The Shikuri Project, we aim to save and improve the lives of other underserved children in East Africa born with sickle-cell disease through early diagnosis and sustained treatment. Shikuri was born with sickle-cell disease in Kenya, but was not diagnosed until his adoption at the age of 2. Due to his West Kenyan birth mother’s constrained circumstances, she abandoned him in a hospital. Since adopting him, Gail Sealy, the founder of our organization, was fortunate enough to avail him with state-of-the-art medical care.

vetpaw-logo-mug_design

VetPaw was founded by a Marine Corps veteran and is dedicated to fighting the atrocities of elephant and rhino poaching in East Africa, Many U.S. Veterans are un- or underemployed because they are highly skilled in combat-related areas but unable to leverage those skills in a civilian setting. VetPaw bridges that gap by giving them the opportunity to use their unique skills in another capacity: anti-poaching efforts. This bracelet includes a recycled Winchester Smith & Wesson .40 caliber bullet round on the band.
