What are we doing to help others?
At Genieholdings.com, Inc. we feel fortunate in where we are, what we have and how we are treated. We see that others are not so fortunate and we want to reach out and help where we can. We don't feel obligated or pressured to do so, we just feel that it is the right thing to do. Hopefully our choice of who and how we help will inspire you to do the same if you too are as fortunate as we are... Below are the organizations that we have chosen to align our efforts with.
Read the full store here but here is the short version: Children from the Democratic Republic of Congo are captured, given a whistle and then put in the front lines of battle ... Their sole duty being ... Make enough noise to scare the enemy and then to receive the first round of bullets ... If you run you are shot from behind to "encourage" you to be brave ... These children do not know freedom like we do and we don't know brave like they do.
Be a whistle blower for peace.
