At Wanderlove, we believe you can’t wander very far before you realize that many parts of the world need help. Our vision is to inspire thoughtfulness. We care not only about creating beautiful and innovative products, but also about playing a part in supporting the very foundation of our world, by feeding hungry children. We contribute a portion of our proceeds and time to Action Against Hunger - a non-profit organization that donates 93% of every dollar toward their programs that last year, reached more than 20 million people in 45+ countries through their lifesaving programs to prevent and treat malnutrition, improve access to clean water, and more.
Did you know about 821 million people go to bed hungry every night, and one in three children in low and middle income countries super from chronic undernutrition? Nearly half of all child deaths worldwide are from causes related to undernutrition even though it is: predictable preventable and treatable.
"One reason I emphasize malnutrition is that almost one-fourth of children worldwide are physically stunted from malnutrition. We see the physical impairment, but what we can't see is the mental stunting as well, the cognitive impairments that will hold a person back - and a country back - for decades afterward. Groups like Action Against Hunger aren't just helping kids get a full tummy, but are also laying the groundwork for a strong adulthood."
