Did you know that we donate 100% of our profits to charity? By having a great time at the Lexi*, you’re helping to support future generations in a very different part of the world. Feels pretty good, right?
The charity we support is The Sustainability Institute, a pioneering sustainable living and learning centre based in rural Stellenbosch, South Africa. Through a series of internationally acclaimed programmes the SI is making a major difference for the families of Lynedoch Village and surrounding area.
Much of the funding from the Lexi is dedicated to working with the children in the village. Projects include:
Check out the Building the Brave (pdf) for a glimpse into life in Lynedoch. And find out about the new school in the village. The SPARK school joins up the early years' support and the after-school activities that Lexi customers have supported so far. And to help the children get the most out of the school day, the SI are fundraising to purchase a school bus to make the journey to school shorter, easier and safer. Learn more about the 'Sponsor a ride, change a life' campaign here.
So, enjoy that warm, creamy feeling, for every kernal of popped corn you crunch, every sip of fine Merlot you savour, contributes to the quality of life of those in need at the other end of the world.
