OpenBrook Is Committed To Making A Difference Through Charitable Giving
With OpenBrook being a brand committed to trying to make the world a better place, there was no way that we wouldn’t set up some sort of charitable system, but what we’ve done with Plant a Tree, Feed a Child, we’ve really raised the bar on what giving truly means as an organization.
Any purchase made on OpenBrook.com will translate into a tree being planted and a hungry child being fed. Our goal has been, and always will be to make a difference, and that’s what we’ve done here. Though we obviously want to be known for our high-quality patio furniture and environmentally safe materials – we’d also like to be remembered as the company who cares.
How it works is quite simple. After you’ve made your purchase, we donate $25 to Love Without Boundaries, which is enough to feed a child a nutritionally-balanced school meal for two weeks. As for the tree, we donate to Plant-It 2020, who puts 85% of that donation towards the planting and caring of the trees which are planted on public land, where it won’t be cut down.
OpenBrook, Plant-It 2020 & Love Without Boundaries – Together For Good
None of this would have been possible without the support of Plant-It 2020 and Love Without Boundaries. Both of these wonderful organizations have been extremely supportive of our mission and vision.
Plant-It 2020 is a non-profit organization that plants indigenous trees properly, which are then maintained and nurtured. They plant the tree where you prefer, in the US and abroad, and plant it in a location where it won’t be logged in the future. They choose trees with the best survival rates for the area. Plant-It 2020 also coordinates city tree-planting events throughout the US to encourage activity and awareness. They also provide environmentally safe cooking stoves to needy families, as well as providing forestry, soil and biochar education to people around the world.

Love Without Boundaries is a charitable foundation that assists thousands of children in China through foster care, nutrition, education, orphanage and medical assistance programs. Their mission is to improve the lives of impoverished and orphaned children by providing healing and hope.
There are many children in China with special needs that are abandoned to orphanages, with the way it works, these children are not allowed to attend public schools. Instead they are educated through the orphanages, and through LWB’s “Believe in Me” School programs. Often these children have trouble concentrating and learning because they are so malnourished.
