At Torch Designs, we believe in giving back… A lot of companies can say that, but we back up our words with actions. Torch Designs donates 5% of our gross profit to Trash Mountain Project – an awesome organization that brings hope, love and light to some of the darkest and most discouraging places in the world. We do this, not so we can boast about how good we are, but so we can make a difference that outlives us and teach our children that giving out of what we have been blessed with is vital.
Torch started working with Trash Mountain Project a few years ago when we set up an online auction site for a fund-raising event. The event went well, and they were able to grow and go to new parts of the world, helping people who live in dump sites. Yes, that’s right, dumps – the place where trash, garbage and refuse goes. When we heard of the plight of the people who live on these piles of garbage, it broke our hearts. Trash Mountain has brought hope to some pretty dismal situations by going to the dump sites and trying to meet the needs of the people who live there. They connect and support locals who are already trying to serve and give to the communities affected by the extreme impoverished conditions.
