We get asked all the time about our mission. Here's a little more info about what we do and how it works.
Do 100% of all net proceeds really go to fund global missions?
Yes. This has been our mission since we opened in 2009. Since then we've helped send hundreds of individuals and organizations to over 30 different countries around the world. We are also involved with missions organizations that work locally. From digging wells in Africa to feeding the hungry in Atlanta, we donate to those in need and those serving those in need.
What does net proceeds mean?
Net proceeds means that we give away 100% of our net profits. We pay bills such as full-time staff, lighting, heating, and air. Everything after that is given away!
Are you a non-profit?
No, we are not a non-profit. Because we exchange goods for money, there is no benefit in registering as 501(c)3 non-profit organization (because nothing would qualify to receive a tax deduction).
Will you donate to my mission trip, charity, or project?
Email us or stop by the shop with some information about what you're doing, and we'll do our best to make a contribution!
In December 2014 we made it our goal to give away $1,000 evey day.
While we give away all of our profits, in December 2014 we made it our shop's goal to donate $1,000 every day. That's $31,000 in 31 days. The money went to those in need and those serving those in need. Check out the stories behind each $1,000 doation! Thank you to Appen Media Group and Fox 5 Atlanta for helping us get the word out. And an even bigger thanks to our customers for making this possible!
