Community- International Charities

International Charities

One of the core values we live by at PIPESTONE is Caring. Caring means caring for our team members, animals and communities. Our charitable efforts aim to make a difference in the lives of our local and global communities. 

Gifts for Good

Similar to our local programs, our international efforts focus on helping Kids and Hunger. In 2020, we launched a campaign called Gifts for Good. We identified five different projects in four countries aimed at donating just that. Gifts for Good gave PIPESTONE team members the opportunity to make a donation and have it matched by PIPESTONE. The goal was to raise $200,000 in 30 days and fund all five projects. The response we got was overwhelming. With $100,000 donated from the PIPESTONE team and another $100,000 to match from PIPESTONE, we were able to fully fund all the beneficial projects listed below. 

  • Built a new dining hall at Adams Thermal Foundation in Ethiopia.
  • Funded a self-help chicken and egg training facility to help the Adams Thermal Foundation generate income, learn business skills and provide protein to their members.
  • Built adult literacy buildings where people can gather for class or worship at India Evangelical Team.
  • Dug clean water wells at the India Evangelical Team.
  • Helped provide nutrient filled food to over 300 local families at Tapestries of Life in Mexico. 
  • Funded part of the elevators in the House of Gems orphanage for the handicap children at Tapestries of Life in Mexico. 
  • Upgraded chicken brooder house at New Roots, Haiti.
  • Built a new community center at New Roots, Haiti.
  • Helped the Lagossett Christian School at Children of the Promise in Haiti with their nutrition program by providing breakfast and lunch.

Through Gifts for Good, PIPESTONE and our team supported a dining hall in Ethiopia, literacy buildings in India, chicken facilities in Haiti, an elevator to assist handicap children in Mexico and nutrition programs across the board. It is difficult to imagine the impact Gifts for Good has made- but we are grateful to share a little with you.
