Committed to the company philosophy of “bearing fruit” in the community, Bearfruit Corporation CEO Andrew and his wife Yeon Jin (Michelle) have decided to start a campaign that will help raise funds for clean water projects in third-world countries. This is not a novel endeavor for the happily married couple, as Andrew and Michelle had supported a clean water project in Rwanda organized by the World Vision to commemorate their wedding back in 2014.
According to UNICEF, there are around 2.4 billion people who do not use improved sanitation and 663 million people who do not have access to improved water sources. This means that 1 in 3 people worldwide put their life at risk for many treatable and curable causes. Moreover, it is truly disheartening to learn that children under the age of 5 die early due to consuming contaminated water! Essentially, having clean water is a privilege that is usually taken for granted. Nonetheless, Bearfruit Jewelry will take the initiative to become a greater help to our neighbors. For every accumulation of $160 from the sales of BF bottles, we will donate the proceeds to purchasing one Water Purifier through World Vision. Each Water Purifier is $160!
Water Purifier is used at community water points, in schools and health facilities to create safe water for drinking, household cleaning, and handwashing and bathing. Using low-cost table salt, water, and battery, this machine creates enough chlorine in just 5 minutes to treat 200 L of dirty water!
Thank you so much for helping Bearfruit Jewelry achieve this lofty mission. Stay tuned for good news to come!
