Mugs that make a difference! Each of our 7 mugs in the mug project contribute 50% of their purchase price to a partner nonprofit organization. We’re working with a range of respected organizations — from the NRDC to TFA — to help you tailor the perfect gift to the perfect cause. See the full list of our partners below!



Architecture for Humanity
Building a more sustainable future using the power of design. Through a global network of building professionals, Architecture for Humanity brings design, construction and development services to communities in need.


Founded in 1866, the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) was the first humane organization in the Western Hemisphere. Our mission, as stated by founder Henry Bergh, is “to provide effective means for the prevention of cruelty to animals throughout the United States.” The ASPCA works to rescue animals from abuse, pass humane laws and share resources with shelters nationwide.


Boys & Girls Clubs of America
Boys & Girls Clubs of America works hard every day to make a difference in the lives of youth in communities all over the world. Club programs and services promote and enhance the development of young people by instilling a sense of competence, usefulness, belonging and pride.


Heifer International
Heifer International is a global nonprofit with the goal of ending poverty and hunger in a sustainable fashion. Established in 1944, Heifer International gives out gifts of livestock, seeds and trees and extensive training to those in need.


With the support of our members and online activists, Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) works to solve the most pressing environmental issues we face today: curbing global warming, getting toxic chemicals out of the environment, moving America beyond oil, reviving our oceans, saving wildlife and wild places, and helping China go green.


St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision of our founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family’s ability to pay.


Teach for America
Teach For America (TFA) is an American non-profit organization that aims to eliminate educational inequity by enlisting the nation’s most promising future leaders to teach for two or more years in low-income communities throughout the United States. The organization aspires for these “corps members” to gain the insight and added commitment to tackle the root causes of America’s achievement gap throughout their lives.
