At Vibrate Higher, our motto is simple yet effective: we aim to make the world a better place by invoking meaningful change at the grassroots level.
For us, this means abiding by the principle of paying it forward through the Be the Light, Give the Light campaign.
For every item sold, Vibrate Higher donates a solar powered light to one of the 63% of families without electricity in Haiti.
These lights can transform lives:
- they are a beacon of safety in a night of darkness
- they allow for increased studying time for school children
- they replace the need for families to rely solely on dangerous, toxic, and expensive kerosene. (Did you know that exposure to kerosene smoke kills nearly 2 million people every year and more women are severely burned in kerosene-related accidents each year than are diagnosed with HIV and TB combined?!)
Through the Vibrate Higher Foundation, a U.S.-based 501c3 non-profit organization, we are able to help even more people. The Vibrate Higher Foundation promotes the well-being of women, children and minority groups and investing in social programs that alleviate poverty while bringing mindfulness and yoga techniques to the underprivileged.
To date, 1700 families and school children from different backgrounds, all over different parts of the country - including Cap Haitian, Grand Goave, Jacmel and Ilet Sab have been impacted through our light donations. Ilet Sab is a tiny island off the coast of Grand Goave with no electricity infrastructure. Here especially, the lives of the people were forever changed by the addition of these lights.
In addition, the foundation has partnered with the Mugumu Safe House and Vocational Training Centre which protects girls who are at risk of Female Genital Mutilation in the Serengeti region of Tanzania. The Safe House provides a sanctuary during the December “cutting season,” and educates the surrounding communities on the dangers of FGM. Vibrate Higher’s Mentally at Yoga, Don’t Look Back, and Calm is a Super Power shirts benefit the Safe House.
