I wanted to explain why I am now donating a portion of our sales to charities. One of my lifelong goals is to eventually run my own animal shelter, it is part of the reason why I started this business. My thinking was to create a business that could not only support me but make enough to support my own animal shelter. While we are not quite at that end game goal yet, we can start doing some good now.
Besides that, I also wanted to start donating to charity because of Covid-19. Luckily, H2O Plants is thriving in this current environment. And since we are thriving, I want to take the opportunity to give back as I know a lot of people are suffering right now. If Covid-19 would have struck 20 years ago I would have been greatly affected by this. A little back story as I do not share this often. My family was extremely poor growing up. My parents relied heavily on government assistance programs, charities, and the free meal programs that were provided to me at school. So, I know what so many families are facing right now, and I want to help as much as I can. That is why I am choosing to donate to charities during this time.
My goal is hopefully whatever we can donate will help someone in need. I may change the percentage we donate over the next few weeks or which charities we choose to donate to but whatever you see on our home page is what we are currently contributing and who we are contributing to. One of my goals is to change the charity that we donate to every month in hopes of supporting so many good causes.
Anyway, that is enough for now, stay safe, happy tanks,
