CARE-GIVING + CARE-TAKING : Charity Program

[soma+psyche] is a Personal Care Line. If we're going to talk about self-care, we need to talk about caring for others too. Each season, we send a portion of our proceeds to 1 project that protects the planet and 1 project that protects people in need. (Visibility is as valuable as financial support, so please explore our SUMMER selection.)

Seacology’s mission is to protect threatened island ecosystems all over the world. We do that by working directly with communities, helping them to preserve their cultures and improve their lives while saving precious island habitats.

Why Islands? Islands are home to unique plant and animal species –and if they disappear from an island, they are lost to the entire world forever. Islanders around the world are experiencing the sometimes disastrous effects of sea level rise, acidifying oceans, and more powerful storms. With Seacology’s unique win-win strategy, we work directly with island communities, responding to their needs and supporting their efforts at conservation.

The Adopt-A-Native-Elder Program supports the traditional Elders who live in the cultural and spiritual traditions of The Dine (Navajo) People. Most live in remote portions of the Dine's reservation. The Program provides food, simple medicines, clothing, fabric and yarns to help these Elders live on the land in their traditional lifestyle. As they have become elderly, it has become more difficult for them to support themselves on the Land in their traditional ways. The Program supports 500 traditional Elders who live in the Northern portion of Arizona and Southern Utah.

It is assisted by Dine' people who serve as coordinators  to help us determine the needs of the Elders in their own culture and lifestyle.
