We love making people feel great. And there’s nothing better than the feeling of helping others.
It’s engrained in our every step — from the mala bead jewelry being handmade in Bali, to you purchasing the rudraksha bead jewelry from your favourite store.
Our family in Bali
The creation process in Bali provides numerous jobs for locals — from the planting of the rudraksha trees, to the harvesting stage.
And the best part is that it’s all fair trade. Even better — all the employees benefit from profit sharing of world wide sales!
In addition, support is given to the high priests in Bali, Indonesia who often perform their ceremonies for free.
We’re also very proud to donate a portion of our profits to a non-profit birthing and wellness center in Bali called Bumi Sehat.
An organization that is near and dear to our hearts is Opportunity International. They work with entrepreneurs in the developing world by providing micro-loans for them to follow their dreams. We love that 93% of those loans are given to women. The organization is educating, empowering and uplifting those in a world where opportunity isn't always available.
In April 2013, team Mala Collective was proud to Live Below the Line, eating on $1.75 a day to raise awareness around extreme poverty. We ate on this amount for five days, gaining more insight and mindfulness around the limited resources that those around the world live with.
We were proud to donate 10% of sales during the challenge week to Opportunity International.
Mala Collective is also conscious in donating to and attending events where we can give back.
We donate to organizations like Karma Teachers, who offer free yoga to those on Vancouver’s Downtown East Side to promote the act of selfless giving, and the Big Brothers and Big Sisters organization, which offers mentoring to youth.
We also love sharing the goals of inspiring organizations like Girlvana – which is working to promote female empowerment and consciousness in young women through yoga, meditation and a healthy lifestyle.
It makes us feel pretty great. And we think you should experience the love, too!
