Do Good Program
Do Good Program
Here at Proof, we always strive to give back to those around us; it’s really how we got our start. We want to provide quality products that have meaning and do something beneficial through the purchase of those products. Along with doing good to mother nature, we also work at doing good to those around the world. A portion of each purchase goes to a worthy cause that we've chosen to donate to.
Since we got our start in 2011, we’ve helped provide tsunami relief in Japan, child soldier rehabilitation in Africa, reforestation in Haiti, as well as a list of other charitable donations. In 2013, we decided to start giving on an even larger scale. We embraced the idea of donating funds on a project-by-project basis. That year, we started by donating funds to build two eye clinics in India where over ¼ of the world’s blind population resides. Both clinics provide sight–giving cataract surgeries to those in need. In 2015, we plan to do a project in El Salvador. More updates to come!

The India Project
In 2013, we decided to use a portion of each sale to build two eye clinics in India. Both eye clinics have provided sight-giving cataract surgeries to those in need; because the Indian community houses over ¼ of the world's blind population, the eye clinics have been an effective addition to both areas. After watching both communities use these eye clinics, we saw how a little bit of help can go a long way in restoring sight to thousands.
