Coca-Cola Celebrates Mother’s Day With Women Artisans #5by20

Last year I was happy to see women in Nepal benefitting from Coca-Cola’s 5by20 program. By 2020 Coca-Cola has pledged to help five million women entrepreneurs around the globe by allowing them to earn money through its value chain. That could mean teaching women valuable business skills as I saw in Kathmandu to providing women with opportunities to support their families through creating products with Coca-Cola products and packaging to helping women start their own small businesses.

For Mother’s Day, I was delighted to receive this tulip from Coca-Cola made by artisans who work for Mitz, a Mexican nonprofit where women devote 8 to 30 hours a week to create handmade products. Mitz creates jobs for women, funds kids’ scholarships and reduces waste.

This Mother’s Day watch how Coca-Cola’s 5by20 program is impacting the children of the millions of women who have already benefitted from the global initiative.

Happy Mother’s Day!

Another Easy Way to Give Water for Good

Water issues continue to be front and center of global health and development goals. In fact, 783 million people today do not have sustainable access to clean, safe water. While there have been notable strides in providing access to water to regions in need around the world, that need is still astronomical.

Many NGOs and companies are on the frontlines of working towards ensuring communities have access to water. One such company is GIVN.

GIVN, a certified B-Corporation based in Chicago, provides water to communities in need through its three key partners: Water.org, Water is Basic, and UNICEF’s Tap Project. For every bottle of GIVN water you buy, one person will receive a full day of water. To date, GIVN’s sales have provided 800,000 days of clean water to communities in need.

GIVN is sold in 35 states at 500 locations. We tried GIVN water and it’s delicious, clean, smooth-tasting spring water. Not only is the water extremely good, but for every bottle you’re doing good as well.

Keep an eye out for GIVN in stores near you, or you can simply purchase a case of 24 for $29.99 on Amazon. That’s 24 days of clean water for someone who might otherwise not have it!

Have you heard of GIVN before? Be sure to share this story with your friends and social community to get water and give water!
