Toronto, ON (PRWEB) February 27, 2008
GAMMA Salt Cristals Ltd announces the first in a series of donations supporting charities and non-profit organizations throughout the world. Through The Angel's Corner and sales of its recently created Angel Salt Lamp, our customers have so far helped us support hundreds of children and entrepreneurs in Pakistan, Togo and Paraguay.
Our first contribution, three micro-loans through Kiva (http://www.kiva.org/lender/GAMMASalt3136), is helping a man in Togo buy tools for his repair business, a woman in Togo to buy inventory for her shoe business, and a woman in Paraguay to buy more merchandise for her grocery store. As these loans are repaid over the coming year, the funds will be reloaned to others looking to start or expand their business, enabling them to lift themselves out of poverty.
Next we made a donation to Plan Canada, which will be used in a Birth Registration Program in Pakistan, where our factory is located. The goal of this project is to assist children without documentation in obtaining a birth certificate. Most significantly these documents provide children with easier access to essential social services such as education and health care. Also, by providing proof of age, it helps protect against child labor and child marriage and aids in defending against abuse and child trafficking. Our contribution will help provide documents for over 230 children.
Inspired by former President Bill Clinton's book 'Giving' and Oprah Winfrey's efforts to improve the lives of countless people around the globe, "I decided to use my name to give tribute to these Angels and use our company to spread a bit of goodness around the world. I would like to thank our customers for their support and assure you that we will continue to investigate other worthy projects around the world. This is only the beginning," said Maria Angel, co-owner of Gamma Salt.
