Here at Proof, we always strive to give back to those around us; it’s really how we got our start. We want to provide quality products that have meaning and do something beneficial through the purchase of those products. Along with doing good to mother nature, we also work at doing good to those around the world. A portion of each purchase goes to a worthy cause that we've chosen to donate to.
Since our start in 2010, we’ve helped provide tsunami relief in Japan, child soldier rehabilitation in Africa, and reforestation in Haiti. In 2013, we embraced the idea of donating funds on a project-by-project basis. That year, we started by donating funds to build two eye clinics in India where over one-fourth of the world’s blind population resides. Both clinics continue to provide sight–giving cataract surgeries to those in need. In 2015, we had the best of both worlds and were able to give back globally and locally. We traveled to El Salvador for various community projects with a donation totaling over $12,000 and shortly after we were able to donate $12,000 to The Nature Conservancy in Idaho. Whether it be in Idaho or India, for maintaining land or providing eye care, we consider ourselves global citizens and will continue to use a socially conscious business model to do good. We believe that even a small amount can dramatically shift the trajectory of people's lives, and it all starts with giving others the tools they need to succeed.
We make Health & Vision initiatives a priority on all of our Do Good projects. This includes hosting health screening clinics in underprivileged countries, sponsoring cataract, club foot, and cleft lip surgeries and providing glasses to those in need.
We focus on Empowerment projects aimed to provide solutions that won’t pay off a problem temporarily but will facilitate permanent change in people’s lives. Previous initiatives include sponsoring micro-loans for entrepreneurs in vulnerable populations, supporting women & children in Safe Houses, and leadership building workshops in orphanages.
The Environmental protection efforts around the world ranges from reforestation efforts to the protection of wildlife reserves. Sustainability is one of Proof’s founding principles, and we continue striving to reduce our environmental impact.
We focus on Education initiatives with each of Proof’s Do Good projects. This includes everything from covering school enrollment fees and supplies, reconstructing school buildings, leading entrepreneurship classes and more
