Modwalls in the Community
We’re living the way that we want to by doing what we love, and selling a product that is both fun and functional to customers who appreciate it.
We believe that everyone in the world has the right to feel fulfilled and know that their work serves a purpose. To that end it is one of our business goals to help employ those who may not otherwise have work that is readily available to them. Another goal is to have the opportunity to donate some of our profits to those in need.
Here are some of the non-profit organizations that we support:
- Since 2005 we have contracted with HOPE Services to produce our modwalls®custom glass tile blends in a local workshop for their developmentally disabled adult clients. Hope’s Mission is to assist people with developmental disabilities to live and participate in their communities. We have benefited greatly from the amazing work and attention to detail that Hope’s clients provide in making each modwalls®custom blend a real work of art for our customers’ architectural installations.
- From April 2007 through April 2008, we contributed a portion of every sale to Kiva.org. Since that time we have continuously reinvested that money as the loans are paid back. Kiva lets you lend a specific amount of money to entrepreneurs in the developing world - empowering them to lift themselves out of poverty.
- We believe that teachers are one of the most important influences on our children’s lives. We are happy to have discovered RAFT the Resource Area for Teachers in San Jose, CA. RAFT knows that teaching is the best way for our children to learn, so they provide teachers and community groups with tools and materials to promote hands on teaching in science, math, technology and art. modwalls®donates tile to RAFT for use in art projects.
