We did it! Through contributions and purchases made with our brand we honored one of the seven principles of Kwanzaa : Ujima.
We planted over 2,000 trees in 2020 within the United States and Africa.
You can still submit 2020 donations to our campaign page for One Tree Planted a 501(c) 3 organization here : https://businesspartners.raisely.com/t/sunsumintention
Ujima, the third principle of Kwanzaa, is a commitment to active and informed togetherness on matters of common interest. As a conscientious consumer, you can impact global change with your buying power.
When practicing Ujima, we start to shift our behaviors and actions by selecting brands that also use contemplative practices. It is through collective work and corporate responsibility, we can create a more sustainable world for all.
As a brand, we exist to create a cross-cultural dialogue and framework for self-care and mindfulness practices. We believe that mindfulness can transform the quality of life for all.
Working and living in a global society requires the ability to create interactions and relationships with people who are different from oneself. Building capacity and empathy on global issues such as reforestation reinforces our brands values and global view as a maker, supplier, distributor and merchant.
Thank you for helping Sunsum Intention Candles support its mission to intentionally create a connection to a culture through candles.
