EVERY PURCHASE PROVIDE LIFE’S ESSENTIALS
The CAUSEGEAR 5X JOBS Model is a sustainable alternative to hand-outs and a dignified pathway out of poverty. Each purchase supports a job that pays five times the norm. The income provides for life’s essentials (food, water, clothing, housing, medical, and education) for the crafter and those they care for.
CAUSEGEAR'S L3C LOW-PROFIT MODEL
As a private low-profit social enterprise, CAUSEGEAR operates as efficiently as it can in order to provide the crafters pay and benefits that are 5X the norm. This is accomplished through the most efficient, effective, and ethical supply chain model; while partnering with experienced, ethical low-profit, vetted partners in the poorest most unjust region of the world (South Asia). CAUSEGEAR also meets or exceeds the wage standards set by the World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO). In addition to the 5X Model, crafters receive the benefits of a 90% profit share used for special projects that include areas like healthcare, counseling, education, vocational training, and other special needs that become important to those serve.
