One of these campaigns, “We are Love,” raises funds for the 1 billion people around the world who do not have access to adequate healthcare or clean drinking water.

All proceeds go towards Free The Children's Adopt a Village program, which helps local communities across the world access food, clean water, sanitation, education, health care, and steady income.
