There are so many causes that need addressing. In terms of giving, The Blue Butterfly focuses on two of them: hunger and child abuse.
Each year, we choose two legitimate and financially sound organizations dedicated to eradicating these issues, and then we give—by donating money from The Blue Butterfly directly, and by holding fundraisers at the store throughout the year to raise even more for these charities. Please see ongoing updates to our Events page for those listings.
Our charities for 2019/2020:
NO KID HUNGRY Did you know that one in six (1 in 6) children in the U.S. faces hunger? No Kid Hungry has established several specific programs to address the issue of childhood hunger in the U.S., providing school meals, food skills education, advocacy, and more support to communities around the country. No Kid Hungry also addresses the international hunger crisis via its international grants program. We are excited to work with No Kid Hungry to help feed those in need.
UNICEF To address issues of child abuse and child protection, we have decided to work with UNICEF. From the organization: "UNICEF works in over 190 countries and territories to save children’s lives, to defend their rights, and to help them fulfill their potential, from early childhood through adolescence. And we never give up." That's enough for us. With its ongoing advocacy and sterling reputation, we look forward to helping UNICEF achieve its goals.
Thank you for helping us support causes that make the world a better place.
