Heal The Bay is an environmental nonprofit organization founded in 1985. Their mission is to make the coastal waters and watersheds of Southern California safe, healthy, and clean. Every summer Wpromote employees join the effort by spending an afternoon cleaning the beaches of El Porto in Manhattan Beach. The beach clean up is always a huge success for Wprovide, Wpromote’s philanthropic initiative.
In 2007, Wpromote began supporting Kiva, a microfinancing nonprofit that empowers people through $25 loans. To date, Wpromote employees have provided 64 loans to people around the world to help them rise out of poverty.
While women’s breast cancer has gotten mass publicity and support over the years, cancers affecting men have received significantly less attention. Wpromote sought to give prostate cancer the attention it deserves by participating in Movember, a mustache charity event held in November, raising $2,300 for the cause.
Following the tsunami disaster in Japan, Wpromote pledged to match employee donations and raised $2,430. The company donated proceeds to a handpicked charity called Direct Relief International, which spends an astounding 98.8% of its revenue directly on its charity programs.
As Easter drew near, employees were reminded of the egg hunts and basket decorations they participated in as children. Wanting to allow at-risk children to have the same experiences, employees created Easter baskets filled with treats, toys and educational tools that were donated to Olive Crest, a nonprofit dedicated to preventing and treating child abuse.
Soroptimist is an international organization dedicated to improving the lives of women and girls around the world. On the Mexican holiday Day of the Dead, in which people gather to pray for loved ones who have died, the organization held a beer and wine tasting event called "Savor the Flavor." Wpromote sponsored the beer mugs for the event. Proceeds of $6,000 were donated to a woman’s shelter in Rosarito, Mexico.
For four years, Wpromote employees have taken time out of their Saturdays to help put together care packages for troops around the world as part of Operation Gratitude, an organization that seeks to lift soldier morale by sending them letters and goods. Thus far, the organization has sent 600,000+ packages across the globe.
The 2010 earthquake in Haiti killed thousands and left millions of people without social support, much less health care. In response, Wpromote set out to raise money for earthquake victims by matching employee donations. All together, the company donated $2,000 to Partners In Health, an organization that set up a 2.5 year, $125 million plan called "Stand with Haiti" aimed to rebuild health care in Haiti.
After an employee at Wpromote lost a friend to brain cancer, she set out to run a marathon with the goal of raising $3,000 for ThinkCure!, a leading nonprofit that raises money to accelerate collaborative research to cure cancer. In support, Wpromote was the first to sponsor her run, ultimately kick-starting her fundraising efforts and helping her raise over $3,400.
