Daniel’s parents are missionaries, so he grew up in Zaire and Kenya (by the way, don’t ask him if he speaks “African” or if he rode an elephant to school—he gets mad). He saw firsthand the constant struggle many Africans faced just to acquire basic necessities like food and clean water. When he shares his observations of what life in Africa is like for many people, I feel so guilty for having a refrigerator filled with food and a faucet that gushes out clean water.
I want Wit & Whistle to be the kind of business that makes a difference in the world, however small that difference may be. A good friend of ours works for ICDI, a non-profit organization that does all sorts of great things in the Central African Republic like drilling wells to provide clean water, assisting with agricultural development to alleviate malnutrition, and more.
So, here’s my plan. I added two new art prints to the shop. For every Germinate print sold I will donate $10 to ICDI’s agricultural program, and for every Droplet print sold I will donate $10 to ICDI’s water program.
