To wrap up our #chiaholiday, we asked artist and foodie Heather Fenner to make us her favorite brunch! A painter, wife, and mom of three from Los Angeles, she knows a few things about making a filling and well decorated Holiday Brunch...
It’s that time of year to spread lots of Chia Cheer! At Mamma Chia we thrive on creating products that nourish our bodies and Seed our Souls. As a contributor to 1% for the Planet and a member of Slow Money, we know how important the impact of giving back can be! That’s why we admire other brands who are doing their part to make our Earth a magical place to call home.
With the holidays swiftly approaching, we’ve gathered some of our favorite giving companies in one place, to share with you! This year give a gift…that gives!
1. Cause Roast
Our friends at Cause Roast, provide high-quality, fair-trade coffee that gives 50% back to the world’s greatest causes. Every bag of coffee purchased helps change the life of someone in need. Not to mention, Americans consume 400 million cups of coffee per day, equivalent to 146 billion cups of coffee per year, making the United States the leading consumer of coffee in the world. Imagine if all that coffee gave back!
For every blanket you purchase, Sackcloth & Ashes donates a blanket to your local homeless shelter. Yes, your local homeless shelter! Inspired to help the homeless population after his hardworking single mother, found herself living on the streets in 2013, Bob Dalton founded Sackcloth & Ashes in June of 2014.
Calling local homeless shelters in his area, he learned what they needed most: blankets! Sackcloth & Ashes is a true one-for-one company, doing their part to help give the homeless warmth.
