Supporting Knowledge and Charity

Did you know that Chopa – Your Kimono Source, donates to charities throughout the year?

We just donated to Wikipedia and we’re feeling really good about it! We believe that knowledge is power and everyone deserves access to accurate information. Chopa is on a mission to help others!

Our donation to Wikipedia marks its 20th anniversary. Will you join us in our journey of helping others? Chopa is committed to making donations throughout the year to charities that help others. It’s our way of giving back to those who could benefit. So far, we’ve donated to causes like Wikipedia, education, and animal rescue and welfare. From now through the end of the year, we will make additional donations to a plethora of causes.

But it doesn’t stop there. Beginning in January, we make donations throughout the year to charities that help others. We seek out causes that we believe give the most to those who will benefit. Sometimes it is a local group, sometimes nationwide. It isn’t about the geography as much as the greater will and ability to help and make a difference. It isn’t just about Christmas time but all the time.

We believe Wikipedia is one of those groups. Wikipedia was founded 20 years ago. Since then, their beloved encyclopedia has grown a lot, through good times and hardships, and today, more than ever, it is serving its true purpose. It helps millions of people study, discover, explore, and research. Each day, Wikipedia gives readers a new chance to acquire the knowledge that is so rightfully theirs, no matter what their circumstances might be.

Wikipedia doesn’t accept ads so donations to this non-profit group are vital to its existence.  Financial support allows edits to be made, and articles to reach new readers; it gives their non-profit the means to stay true to its mission, even as Wikipedia has become one of the most visited websites in the world. Nearly a day goes by when we hear someone mention something they saw or found on Wikipedia. We, as an organization have used it for research. It is a truly valuable resource and one of the few remaining that is free…to everyone.

If you have the resources and feel charitable, now is a great time to look around your own community to find a worthy cause. Because we are nearing the end of year, many charities are running thin on resources and it becomes a great time to help. It also makes you feel good knowing you diod something to help someone else, whether it is an individual, a group or our furry friends.

If you want to go one step further, check with your own office or employer. Many employers will generously match employee contributions: please check with your employer to see if they have a corporate matching gift program.

You can be a part of our mission by simply shopping with us. Every purchase you make helps us give back to those in need.
