We are deeply committed to giving back to the community through meaningful support of social causes we are passionate about. In designing our business, we identified our two missions. One is to help nonprofits, who do an amazing job of supporting critical social causes. The other is to help individual artisans and small to medium manufacturers struggling to bring their products to market.
In these tough times, the burden of need is ever greater on all social causes. That is why we donate 10% of all retail sales to the social causes we support. Together we can make a difference: you have a voice, let your heart speak
Animals are living, feeling creatures. When you are close to an animal you know that they not only depend upon you for their physical welfare, but that they also provide loyalty, love, and affection to you just as much (if not more than) you provide to them.
We, at SugarShopper, are committed to the protection, care, and support of animals – both domestic and wild.
No one “deserves” to be physically or emotionally abused, no one “asks for” sexual abuse in any form – whether through verbal harassment or inappropriate touching or rape. Words can be violent and demeaning. Slapping, hitting, shoving, or yanking someone’s arm is painful and violent and must not be tolerated. Adults and children in abusive situations need a safe place to go, where they will be sheltered, counseled, surrounded by gentle caring. Domestic violence can be insidious and the cycle can be perpetuated from generation to generation. We support groups that intervene to break the devastating cycle of domestic violence, to nurture and heal the families.
380,000 veterans are unemployed, almost 50,000 are homeless on any given night, one in three who served in Iraq or Afghanistan suffers from PTSD or Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) or a combination of both. Our veterans served our country – whether here or abroad - committed to standing for us, for freedom and democracy. But that service cost many of them a lot. Whether they’re now dealing with unemployment, homelessness, PTSD, or TBI, so many of them are hurting and now we owe them. They need us. We must be committed to helping them recover. At SugarShopper, we want to help you help them. We support a variety of groups devoted to giving veterans a firm foundation for a full, successful life here at home after their military service.
Every child deserves to receive nurturing support to fulfill his or her true spirit. Whether that’s learning about economics and finances to prepare today’s kids for success in a global economy; or intervention to help teenage boys in crisis heal, earn an education, and learn responsible healthy behaviors; or giving children with life-threatening illnesses a gift of love and a wish – children (and their families) in rough situations need ongoing support and education to become the wonderful young people we know they can be. We, at SugarShopper, want to help build every child’s future. Those children in need are all of our futures, too. They’ll make this world all it can be.
