During this season of holiday shopping, often times you may forget about giving back to the community. Here at Purium, giving back is a HUGE part of our mission, In fact, Purium has given over $200K in donations in 2020!
Purium was founded on the concept of giving back to the community. In honor of Giving Tuesday, read below to discover the non-profit organizations that we helped empower this year through donation, sponsorship, and advocacy.
Million Mom Movement
Founded by Purium Co-owner, Amy Venner, the Million Mom Movement (MMM) is committed to spreading health, well-being, and economic opportunity around organic, superfood nutrition. With a strong focus on educating families about GMO’s and healthy eating, MMM began sponsoring women in 2020 as ‘Health Warriors’ to support their families nutritionally and financially.
Purium awards $10,000 worth of scholarships each month to provide superfood nutrition for moms and their families, based upon their individual needs. The monthly sponsorship benefits four families per month. Each family is given the opportunity to afford higher-quality nutrition by building a home-based business income stream.
The family and mom-prener receive:
- Purium superfoods
- 1 Free Launch Pack to become a Purium Brand Partner
- Continued mentorship in health, well-being, and career
Each applicant must be sponsored by a Purium Brand Partner who has ranked Diamond or above. If the sponsor has not reached Diamond, they may partner with a co-sponsor who has. Find out more at https://millionmommovement.info/.
The A.W.A.K.E.N. Project
Also adding to Purium’s 2020 donations are our monthly pledges supporting the A.W.A.K.E.N. Project. Created to enhance the lives of Autistic children and families through encouragement, education, and nourishment, the A.W.A.K.E.N. Project hosts transformation retreats for families touched by autism.
This year, Purium helped to sponsor families to attend immersive retreats, which strive to create an energy of healing and renewal within each family member. The A.W.A.K.E.N. Project’s compassionate staff of qualified caregivers and therapists make it a priority to ensure the entire family experiences some of the most promising, compelling, and potentially life changing therapies and treatments offered.
By providing a nurturing environment for healing, serenity, and workshops, the organization promotes closer bonds among family members and ultimately creates a stronger family connection. Visit their website https://www.theawakenprojectretreats.org/ to schedule a retreat or donate!
FoodCycle LA is another non-profit organization that Purium has passionately donated to in 2020. For almost 15 years, FoodCycleLA has recovered food that would otherwise be thrown away by grocery stores, restaurants, offices, and farmers markets and delivered it to organizations that feed the hungry.
As a community-powered operation, FoodCycle LA works to combat climate change, create systemic reform, and ensure that food feeds communities rather than filling up landfills. This includes feeding the homeless and helping people in need.
Purium donated a variety of sustainable food products to FoodCycle LA this year, including dried sweet potato flour, quinoa flour, oat four, chlorella, and Power Shakes. You can be a part of the solution too; visit https://www.foodcyclela.org/ to learn more about food recovery or to donate.
