Jessica's Testimonial on Pure's Eco-friendly Fundraising Campaign
Posted on 04/11/2020
In the summer of 2019, I went to the community of Villa Riva in the Dominican Republic to participate in the expansion of an educational community garden that was set up in the summer of 2018 and to which I contributed. This project, overseen by the Youth Foundation for Sustainable Development and the organization Acompa Mundo, aimed to train young people from the community in the basics of permaculture so that they could gradually take charge of the garden. In addition, it was a good way to prevent juvenile delinquency and to provide tools to promote self-sufficiency.
Having caught the international cooperation bug, I was to return to the same community in the summer of 2020 to participate in the construction of an eco-responsible house made of recycled tires and bottles. A great way to contribute to the preservation of our environment as well as the well-being of a family in need! Unfortunately, this international cooperation mission has been postponed to a later date due to the current COVID-19 pandemic.
In order to help me finance these projects, I contacted a company in my home region that I particularly like: Pure. In addition to smelling good and being effective, Pure household and body products are biodegradable, not tested on animals and allow for a significant reduction in plastic consumption since they are sold in bulk and can be refilled over and over again. The company's values are therefore directly related to my eco-responsible home construction project in Dominican Republic.
Pure’s fundraising campaign concept is simple. In addition to being healthy, the products are easy to sell because they meet a universal need: cleanliness! Plus, they offer a wide variety of products so that there is something for everyone, and the products offered in the campaign are sold at the same price as in store. Depending on the option chosen, each participant can take orders on a form or ask his or her buyers to do so directly on the website. All this (ordering and payment) can be done remotely (I live in Gatineau and the company is located in Saint-Alexandre-de-Kamouraska) and that's it! The order arrives very quickly at the location desired by the participant or the buyers. Once their bottles are empty, they can go to one of the company’s retailers to fill their bottles with products sold in bulk! What’s better than encouraging a local business!
Without any hesitation, I recommend that you contact the people at Pure for your fundraising campaign. They are always very enthusiastic about the idea of collaborating in our projects and are very welcoming.
Thank you Pure! You have made and continue to make a difference in my international cooperation projects!
