We believe through a cup of tea you can not only empower yourself by choosing the right brew to compliment your goals and desires - though you can also empower women around the world.
With every order, a portion supports organizations on a mission to empower women & young girls. 1% of all sales supports our charitea program, in addition, tease donates an additional 1% in product support/sponsorship to various programs on a mission to empower women.
For 2019, our Charitea effort is comprised of three programs, representing our core values at Tease Tea:
1. EMPOWERING YOUNG GIRLS THROUGH EDUCATION
Plan Canada International is a global movement for change, mobilizing millions of people around the world to support social justice for children in developing countries. We will be focusing in on their Because I Am A Girl portion of the organization as it falls in line with our pillar of supporting young girls through education, who will one day be the women who shape the world. Year to date, we have supported the education of three young girls to attend school.
2. EMPOWERING GENDER BALANCE & EQUALITY
Women for Women International supports the most marginalized women in countries affected by conflict and war. Their programs enable them to earn and save money, improve health and well-being, influence decisions in their home and community, and connect to networks for support. Tease has selected Women for Women International to support our Empowering women through gender balance pillar. By utilizing skills, knowledge, and resources, women are able to create sustainable change for themselves, their family, and community. Tease is aiming to to sponsor as many sisters as we can through our proceeds.
3. EMPOWERING ENTREPRENEURSHIP
Tease Tea Founder’s Fund is a 4-month digital program that gives women access to funding, community, space and world-class mentorship. Founder’s Fund will give each successful applicant all the resources, tools mentorship to help their business reach the next level. We have created the Founder’s Fund to reflect our entrepreneurial pillar of values. Tease tea was built on a community of support from the entrepreneurial ecosystem, and we feel an important obligation to pay it forward.
In July 2019, Tease distributed over $30,000 in funding to support women entrepreneurs thanks to the support of our customers, and our funders behind the fund.
Throughout the year we will be sharing global success stories about all of these selected partners and programs. This a new path for Charitea, but it is an exciting time that we cannot wait to share what we have in store this coming year!
Take a look at the different "Chariteas" our tease community has supported prior to 2019.
Thank you to every tease lover who has supported our mission to empower women one sip at a time.
