Helping others can be so rewarding (well, except the time that homeless guy threw his old chewing tobacco juice on us when we startled him awake after dropping some change in his coffee can). But being charitable can take a lot of hard work and time that we don’t always set aside for such worthwhile causes. (Ouch, we can feel your shame blazing toward us right through the Internet!)
That’s why Southlake-based Project 7 is so good. The company, which started in 2008, is continuing to add products to its line of spring water, mints, gum and apparel. The amazing thing, Project 7 donates 50% of profits with a minimum of $105,000 guaranteed every year. Plus, as consumers, we’re able to vote on which organizations get the money. It’s an easy way to make a difference with somebody else’s cash. Just the way we like it!
Project 7 products can be found online or at national retailers all over town. Or you can find them in your favorite neighborhood places, like Urban Dog Coffee on Oak Lawn.
So next time you pop a mint in your mouth or take a swig of ice cold spring water, make sure to look for the brand that makes mass consumption a good thing.
Now if they start selling cocktails, we can single-handedly save the world.
