SourceYour and Charity

Everybody deserves a chance to know better We believe in education and in re-thinking the way things are done. So much talent is wasted in this world because many people (children and adults alike) do not have the opportunity to get the education they would need to make a difference in this world. Our charity donations are aimed at knowing better and improving the life circumstances for people around the globe through the means of education. We donate 5% of our revenue to charities which have education support as their main aim.
