5% of every sale that Compassion Co. receives (not just of those elusive profits) is donated to a non-profit organization that we feel does important work to change the world for animals. We change the organization every month so that we can help spread the word about a number of groups that we believe in. Unlike most companies that make a public show of donating a vague "percentage of profits", I strive to be as transparent as possible about who we donate to and why as well as exactly how much from each sale. If you ever have any questions about this, please feel free to get in touch.
Currently, the recipient of this donation is Chilis On Wheels. Chilis on Wheels is a 501(c)(3) emergency food relief public charity that provides vegan food to people in need of a warm meal. They believe in treating all living beings with kindness, empathy, and respect regardless of age, race, gender, sexual orientation, language, religion, ability, ethnicity, class, circumstance, environment, level of addiction, or species.
Chilis on Wheels was started on November, 2014 by Michelle Carrera. After searching for a soup kitchen that would serve a plant-based Thanksgiving meal and coming up empty, she decided to cook her own chilis and take them directly to people in need of a warm meal. After receiving a lot of support and encouragement from family and friends, and after seeing first hand the need for such a program, she became inspired and committed to bringing plant-based food to those in need.
In NYC, meals are distributed once a week to people in Tompkins Square Park that want a warm meal. Most soup kitchens close their doors over the weekends, creating a vaccum in services. Chilis on Wheels aims to cover that need and act as a bridge. They also have chapters across the country in: Passaic, NJ; Philadelphia, PA; Boston, MA; Denver, CO; Portland, OR; San Diego, CA; and Puerto Rico, with new chapters opening up.
We believe in treating all living beings with kindness, empathy, and respect regardless of age, race, gender, sexual orientation, language, religion, ability, ethnicity, class, circumstance, environment, level of addiction, or species.
