Invest in your world
Your ideas, your hopes, your dreams. When you invest in your future through our work, you’re also creating meaningful change in the world. Because with every product you purchase, you support a person in need.
You help us employ everything we’ve got: our platform, community and profits to tackle extreme poverty and inequality that’s devastating women and children worldwide.
Along with our non-profit partners, we’re providing fundamental human needs (like water), access to education and dignified work for people domestically and abroad. So when you purchase our products to change your life, you really are changing the world.
Together, here’s how we’re improving lives:
charity: water is a legendary organization with a mission to bring clean and safe drinking water to every person in the world. After we built our first well with Scott and his team, we couldn’t wait to do more.
So to celebrate MarieTV’s 4th Birthday, we launched a campaign and thanks to our generous audience in 195 countries, we raised $63,138 to build 6 more wells in Ethiopia, bringing safe drinking water to over 1,500 people.
Kiva is extraordinary. With as little as $25, you can make a life-changing loan to help other entrepreneurs create a better life for themselves and their families. Our lending team has provided over $58K in loans and we'd love to have you join us.

The Compassion Collective
In May 2016, I joined forces with the Compassion Collective, which was founded by Glennon Doyle Melton, Elizabeth Gilbert, Brené Brown, Cheryl Strayed and Rob Bell. In this beautiful Mother’s Day Campaign, the goal was to take a firm stand for love, bolster support for the Syrian refugees and extend the mission to include caring for homeless youth in the United States. Together, our communities rallied and raised over $560,000 with small donations of no more than $25, and that campaign increased the total amount raised to over $2 million.
