School Supply Drive!

Sometimes parents of school-age kids can have a hard time purchasing everything on their kids’ school supply list due to circumstances beyond their control.

Did You Know? The average annual cost of school supplies in the US is $104 per child; not including clothing or electronics.

A trio of friends saw this need and decided to step up, take action, and organize a school supply drive in the Walkertown, NC community.

We’re grateful they allowed us to play a role in this awesome event by putting together signage and promotions around town to help get the word out…and later this week we will also be making our own donation of supplies!

Want to Give Back? Check out the link below for donation drop off locations and a list of most needed supplies.

And, even if you aren’t in Walkertown, we hope this has inspired you to donate supplies to your local school, so kids can get a strong foundation in education.

One love, y’all!

$6.31. It’s a Start…

A really cool thing that Amazon does to make it easy for non-profits to have funding is this AmazonSmile program. Essentially, every time you shop Amazon, Jah Works can receive a portion of what you spend. All you have to do is to set Jah Works, Inc. as your preferred charity, and remember to shop via smile.amazon.com whenever you buy from Amazon.

For the first few months we’ve been on AmazonSmile, we’ve raised $6.31…and it’s a start! Now, we’d like to multiply that by 111% – because we believe in big goals – AND because that would give us $700, which funds a complete rainwater catchment system for a family in need of access to good water.

So, as you get ready to shop for the holiday season – we appreciate your support through this program. Instructions below for how to get it set up (easy!). Just remember to check that you are ordering through the AmazonSmile platform any time you place an order (hint: unfortunately, you can’t use the mobile app…but the instructions below can help you set up a shortcut on your phone to use easily).
