Give back to Flint
1% of profits are being donated to the Community Fund of Greater Flint. Donations will be distributed to two funds that address children’s health and education in Flint: Flint Promise & Child Health and Development Fund. Lead is a serious and very dangerous neurotoxin. There is no safe level of lead exposure. Once it enters the body, the effects (depending on age of the person exposed) can be immediate, devastating and long lasting. There’s no way to remove lead from the body once it’s been absorbed into the bones. Therefore, we must find other ways to mitigate the devastating effects. Positive early childhood experiences and good nutrition can help limit the effects of lead on children and improve their behaviors and readiness for school. However, much more is needed. As we grapple with the effects of lead exposure, the Community Foundation’s Flint Child Health and Development Fund is focused on providing health and development interventions to support Flint’s children, throughout this crisis and beyond. Your purchase of Genusee will help our efforts to meet the long-term health and development needs of Flint children exposed to lead. Our children are in a fight, and with your help, they will win!
Our goal is simple: do good for people and the planet using design and collaboration to be the change we want to see. Join us on the journey and #BeTheChange we need to see in the world.
