Drinking Generously–Cork for a Cause

I’m always scouring the bushes…and vines…for opportunities where we can choose to be effortlessly generous, where the things we would be doing anyway can be directed toward affecting positive change in the world. Shopping in a way that non-profits get a percentage, long distance phone plans that donate money to charities, recycling computers and cell phones and technology in a way that keeps them out of dumps and gets them into classrooms or the hands of those in need…there are avenues everywhere for us to give in a way that takes no skin off our noses.

If you are inclined to pop the cork on a bottle of wine in the evenings, or on weekends, or for special events, or whenever…think about this organization: Cork for a Cause.  The online wine merchant, an extension of Washington’s Cork House Winery, releases special vintages and appellations and dedicates profits from those purchases to charity. The sales of the bottles go toward such causes as providing free mammograms, preserving the rainforest, helping feed families in need, animal rescue, assistance for veterans in need, healthcare for children, testicular cancer screening and care, HIV/AIDS testing and awareness, Autism research, and more.

Swirl that around in your glass a bit, and go here to find out more about the impact Cork for a Cause is having…an impact that comes from people doing what they do every day. No effort, but BIG result.

    I would look into this charity. They are not donating. Look it up on http://www.charitynavigator.org/ before doing any business.
