Using reclaimed, recycled and sustainable materials is just one way the Sticks and Stones team fulfills both personal and professional mandates to help build a better world.
On a global level, Sticks and Stones is involved in the Free the Children international charity and now donates one percent of profits to its Adopt a Village program in Ecuador.
The Adopt a Village program empowers rural and marginalized communities in places like Kenya, Sierra Leone, Ghana, India, China, Ecuador, Nicaragua, and Haiti to lift themselves from the cycle of poverty. A main focus of the program is on improving access to clean water and sanitation facilities, while also implementing programs to increase the practice of healthy habits and clean water usage.
Founded in 1995, Free the Children works both domestically and internationally to empower young people to become agents of change. The foundation has built more than 650 schools and schoolrooms, educating 55,000 children daily; provided over 1 million people with clean water, sanitation and health care; and empowered 30,000 women to become economically self-sufficient.
