Giving Thanks and Giving Back - 2021
Planet of the Vapes is giving back and contributing 500,000+ meals to those in need this holiday season. We have made this a yearly commitment as a company and we are excited to support these amazing organizations’ work to empower their communities. We couldn't have done this without your support and we want to thank you for contributing to this action.
We do our best to have a positive impact on not only our customers and team, but on our planet and communities as well, and we want to demonstrate that businesses can “do well by doing good.”
We believe that we should expect more social responsibility and positive impact from the companies that we support. We are following the lead of people, companies, and organizations that have inspired us with their ideas and actions to do less harm and more good. We believe that big ideas and small actions, even from small companies, can have a big impact.
We are just starting on this journey, but are committed to being a better, more responsible company.
We are a global team with customers around the world, but most of our business is in the US and Canada and our contribution reflects a “think global, act local” attitude.
We are contributing to these organizations:
US: Feeding America (500,000 meals - $50,000)
Canada: Daily Bread Food Bank ($5,000)
Rest of the World: Heifer International ($5,000)
Please visit these amazing organizations to learn more about the work they do, and how they empower their communities through feeding those in need!
Thank you for your support and for being a part of Giving Thanks and Giving Back!
