Our founding is centered and grounded by our community. From exploring our site & social media posts, it is easy to have an impression that our sole focus is the Veteran Community, however our product is not only for those who put the uniform but for all hard working professionals, athletes, parents and students. Or simply put by American Rockstar legend, Elvis Presley, our organization is for folks who abide by his motto "Taking Care of Business"
We at Organic Grit believe that actions matter a whole lot more than just words, this is why since the day of founding in 2020, twenty percent of all our sales go directly to vetted 501(c) organizations that make a direct impact. Yes, you read that correctly; 20%. Organic Grit was not made for the sole propose of profits for a few shareholders, but rather to serve a community.
Our 501(c) Partners:
- Veteran's Adventure Group: "We build teams of veterans, equip and train them to tackle team based extreme sports goals, and help them execute their new missions."
- Patrol Base Abbate: Return to Base: "We offer free-of-cost retreats in "Big Sky Country" for service members and eligible veterans, where they can reconnect with their warrior spirit, foster community through shared interests, and re-discover purpose in service to each other, their families, and their communities."
Direct Support of Hemp Industries Association
Here at Organic Grit, we are always on the look out for impactful organizations that directly affect our community. In creating our product, we came across the folks at The Hemp Industries Association ("HIA"). HIA has been on the forefront in defending the many uses of hemp (which would include the creation and continued use of the Organic Grit CBD Oil) since 1994. Not only is the HIA leading various initiatives in the United States Congress, they have also organized other hemp businesses and leaders to share goals in setting standards for hemp products. Upon understanding the noble mission that HIA has embarked on and since their core values line up with ours, we have directly contributed to the organization and are now members of the democratically-governed trade association. We are proud to be a part of raising the standards of CBD Oil distributors, and it is our hope that others will follow us.
