Well my health-activist buddies, it’s finally happened. You can drink wine to support a good cause.
Now, my taste in wine is far from refined. In fact, my general stance on it can be summed up in this quote by April from Parks and Rec:
BUT while I generally don’t spend much on wine for myself, it’s a different story if we’re having friends over or I’m bringing a bottle to a dinner party or something. I’ve never gone like WHOA expensive, but I will spend a little extra.
And anyway, the wines I want to show you today are NOT actually very expensive. Their bottles range from about $20-$40. AND each time you buy one, you’re donating to a charitable cause!
What charitable cause you might ask?
Well, whatever you like really!
Under each wine, a cause is listed. Which adds an element of personalization if you’re looking for a gift. Not sure what kind of wine the hostess prefers, but you know she LOVES animals? Perfect, get one that donates to animal welfare organizations!
So what exactly do they donate to?
Here’s an excerpt from their website: “To date we have made more than $3 million in donations, provided 46,000 people with global health care, 49,000 forever homes for shelter animals, 1.8 million meals for children, 163,000 life-saving vaccines and much more.”
Just a few of the charities they support:
Alex’s Lemonade Stand
Autism Care Today
Crisis Text Line
Cure Alzheimer’s Fund
Gateway For Cancer Research
Global Genes: Allies in Rare Disease
The Heart Foundation
The Ovarian Cancer Research Alliance
The End Fund: Ending Neglected Diseases
And how much are they donating? 50% of their profits! That’s a lot! Way more than other companies who donate to say, Susan G. Koman for one month out of the year.
So where can you buy One Hope? Well, on their website obviously. And you can partner with them and sell it yourself at “parties” similar to Mary Kay, if you’re interested in that kind of thing. But if you’re like me, and you like the old fashioned method of buying things in person when you want to, you can check out Total Wine and other wine stores.
And that’s it! Just a cool company I wanted to tell you about. I was not paid in ANY way for this post, One Hope has not talked to me at all, I am completely unbiased. And if One Hope thought this was cool of me, they could send me some wine maybe?
