Why GIVE 51%?
We give 51% of our profit because we believe, “it is more blessed to give than to receive.”
Where does the 51% go?
We give the 51% to our GIVE FIFTY ONE Foundation to help homeless children. At least 10% of that 51% goes to our outside partners that also help homeless children.
Where does the 49% go?
As opposed to using 100% of our profit to run our brand, like ordinary companies, we give 51% and use the remaining 49% to sustain the brand.
