Show your love online (yes, we’re green like that) by sending a simple e-card with a major impact. Just choose from one of their four cards (each one supporting one of their four projects: Health, Environment, Water, Hunger) and include a note to your special someone. And The Adventure Project will send it out to your loved one at some point today. Simple and sweet.
Your gift will arrive on time, show that you care, and change lives. Can’t get much better than that, right?
Who said getting coal in your stocking is a bad thing?
This holiday season, The Adventure Project is bringing out the coal again in order to improve the livelihoods of people in Haiti. Currently over half a million people are still living in tents in Haiti, cooking over open fires and breathing in heavy smoke.
But clean stoves can change that. They cook food faster, use half as much charcoal as open fires, and drastically reduce toxic emissions. Learn more about it in the video below.
If you’ve ever cooked over an open fire, especially in an enclosed home, you know it’s not fun. I was lucky that my eyes didn’t burn/sting as much or get as bloodshot as the other women cooking, but my lungs definitely had trouble breathing.
With a clean stove, families not only have improved health, but they have more time, more food, more money, and the ability to increase income and human capital (i.e. sending kids to school).
It only takes $20 to give a stove.
Or you can purchase a box of coal to give to your friends and family as funny stocking stuffers, and provide 5 stoves to women in Haiti. Naughty or nice, this gift has you covered — plus it’s like giving 6 gifts in one.
