This October, we are kicking off a really exciting humanitarian campaign to aid in the water crisis, specifically in Central Africa!!
When I was growing up, one of my dad's big mantras was encouraging us to "drink it in", in other words, to really be present and savor the moment. I still remember driving down country roads at sunset with my brothers and sisters in the car, and my dad would have us raise our imaginary tea cups in the air, pinkies out (because it's always fancier with your pinky out), and symbolically drink in the moment. Since then I've been passionate about being present and living intentionally.
This past year, in horror we have learned about the devastating reality that many in the world do not live in fortunate circumstances as we do. Simple freedoms we enjoy everyday, such as access to clean, safe water; many people do not enjoy such freedoms.
1 in 10 people worldwide lives without clean water. That is twice the population of the United States or almost a billion people! The sad truth is that the responsibility to gather water often falls to the Mother. She walks up to 7 hours a day in the hot sun to muddy water holes; water shared with cows and wild animals. Many children miss school to help their mothers. This dirty water kills 4,000 children a day.
There are many water charities out there trying to tackle the problem. We researched meticulously the one we wanted to donate to, and after a long process, we very intentionally selectedcharity: water. They are able to cover their expenses through private donors, which means 100% of the money people donate to them goes directly to water projects. We love the transparency they provide into the donation process, so we can be sure our money will go as far as possible. Charity: water has already done so much good in the world. We want to be apart of that, and we are pledging to donate to them this October.
Our goal is to provide a clean, safe water source to 100 PEOPLE! But we need your help.
For every 300 new followers on Instagram that we receive, we will change another person’s life by giving them a clean, safe water source.
For every navy La Mère bag we sell, we will donate 50% of profits to charity: water.
We really believe we can reach this goal with your help! It's quite simple:
Please note estimated shipping dates on each product page when ordering. Unless stated otherwise on the product page, please allow 1-3 business days for orders to leave our warehouse. During sales and other high volume times, please allow up to 5 business days for orders to leave our warehouse. Items in cart will all ship together. If you have an item on Pre-Order in your cart, the in-stock items will not ship until the Pre-Ordered item is available to ship. If you’d like to receive the in-stock items sooner, please place separate orders.
Please choose a secure shipping address, and follow the tracking number to ensure it is safely received during delivery. We are not responsible for lost or stolen packages. No exceptions. In case of a lost or stolen package, please contact your local post office with your tracking number. They will be able to give you exact information regarding whether or not your package was delivered to the correct address. If nothing turns up, we recommend filing a police report.
CONTIGUOUS US (CONUS) SHIPPING:
In the contiguous US (all states except Hawaii and Alaska), we offer two shipping methods: economy and expedited. USPS Economy Shipping usually takes 3-7 business days in transit, once order leaves our warehouse. Our Priority Shipping method is USPS Priority Mail, which usually takes 1-3 business days in transit. On all CONUS orders over $100, we offer free economy shipping. You can upgrade your transit time and select Priority Shipping for an additional $15 fee.
EX-CONUS UNITED STATES SHIPPING:
For all orders shipping outside of CONUS and within United States territories or states, customers can choose to pay for one of the following USPS shipping methods: First Class Mail, First Class Package, Priority Mail or Priority Mail Express. For orders over $50, we ship USPS Priority Mail for a flat $15.
For international orders, we offer one of three shipping methods, all of which are paid for by the customer: USPS Priority Mail International, USPS Priority Mail Express International and USPS First Class Package International.
All international orders are FINAL SALE. For all international orders, the ship-to recipient will be responsible for the price of shipping plus any taxes or customs duties incurred. Unfortunately, we are unable to mark merchandise as “gift” or “no commercial value”. Please note we are unable to estimate the total amount of taxes or duties that may be due at time of delivery. For questions regarding customs fees, we suggest contacting your local government.
Please allow up to 3 weeks for international orders to be received, but note that further delays are possible due to customs. USPS First Class mail does not provide international tracking, so you may also need to check with your local post office to receive your package.
