Giving back is not only a top priority but a responsibility that we take very seriously here at Bleu Spruce.
We give 10% of our proceeds each month with the hope and belief that we can make a difference in lives now and in the future.
What we Believe:
Every person should have a place to call home. A place in which they feel safe and secure. A place where memories are made and life is remembered.
To help end homelessness.
According to the National Alliance to End Homelessness, on a single night in January 2014,
578,424 people were experiencing homelessness.
To educate and bring awareness to charities that are making strides in helping our homeless population. Each year we will partner with a different charity and help aid in their efforts to better the lives of our fellow brothers and sisters who have found themselves homeless and without hope.
This year we will donate 10% of all sales to Homestretch.
Homestretch has a mission to empower homeless families with children living in Virginia to attain permanent housing and self-sufficiency by giving them the skills, knowledge and hope they need to become productive participants in the community.
The program is designed to work with each family, individually, to help the family develop a measurable and achievable service plan which addresses the root causes of homelessness.
60% of the families Homestretch serves are homeless due to domestic violence, while others are homeless due to medical crises, human trafficking, loss of loved ones or some other economic downturn.
Homestretch graduates break the cycle, which means their lives, and their children’s lives, are uplifted.
Homestretch serves homeless families with children. In fact, the average age of someone in Homestretch is only nine years old.
Homestretch families are much MORE able to:
Find a full-time job and stay employed
Graduate from high school
Complete college or vocational school
Focus on building self-sufficiency
Pay taxes, pay off debt
Own a home
