The story behind our #lifegiving vision

Education Here & There

I’m sometimes asked why our products aren’t made in America. Ironically, this question often comes from generous people within the church. At LifeTotes, we challenge a different perspective, starting with a question: “Do you believe God’s heart beats for foreign missions?”

Our greatest calling within the church is to care for the poor, and widows and orphans are among the most in need. Why would God exclude entrepreneurship as an avenue for a more fulfilled life? It’s such a sustainable avenue! If through LifeTotes we can provide business opportunities and education to the poor, we are fulfilling God’s purpose and calling.

So why do we focus on education? Education has the power to end the vicious cycle of poverty, which contributes to nearly all of the plagues of our world today: human trafficking, the exploitation of men, women and children, racism, economic disparity, inadequate food, clean water and even healthcare. All can be traced back to a lack of access to quality education, which could have otherwise led to innovation, opportunity, problem-solving and solutions—a virtuous cycle.

We invest in education because we believe that by providing education to the next generation, we are empowering them to solve the world’s most challenging and troublesome problems both here and there. So when you purchase LifeTote products here, that were made there, you provide educational needs for children here and there. It’s a win, win, win, win.
