The granola itself is delicious. The Greater Good makes it taste even better: We donate all profits from each sale to Seattle community organizations. Every time you buy our granola, you can feel good knowing that every cent over the full cost of making this granola will go to support our community.
After 3 years in business we have been able to donate over $40,000 to the community.
We have also donated to many other important causes.
2017 was big (and our agenda has been set by our awful president). We gave away over $7,000.
$1,000 Moms Demand Action
$1,000 United We Dream
$1,000 International Rescue Committee
$1,000 Planned Parenthood
$2,000 Family Works
+ inkind to a few other causes.
Our chosen cause for January/February, was Manos por la Salud- an organization fighting poverty and bringing medical supplies to those in need in Venezuela. We were able to donate $500. Gracias!
For March and April we'll focus on the issue of gun control (how can we not?!), specifically thinking about the changing of hands this coming November, the Throw Them Out program via nonprofit Everytown for Gun Safety. We will donate 100% of our profits to efforts from Everytown (and Michael Bloomberg is matching all donations to Everytown up to $25Million). Let's do this.
We’ve had enough. Thoughts and prayers are not enough to honor the victims of gun violence. What we need now is ACTION. Lawmakers have had enough time to come around to common sense, and we’re done waiting. We must now elect leaders who will finally act to save lives from gun violence
How do we choose the charities? We like to keep the cause as close to the product as possible. We also find that we are increasingly setting our giving agenda based on what our current administration continues to say and do- usually the antithesis of our values and ethics. In addition, hunger continues to plague our community, and we plan to channel a large chunk of our profits toward fighting it and any and all causes with hunger/food safety adjacencies.
