It seems this is the time of year we become more aware of giving back: to our community; to our loved ones; to those we often under-appreciate in the busyness of life. For us at YOMM, giving back it all about giving back to our roots in our homeland in Africa and it's something we do all year long.
It has been decades since we have parted ways with that part of the globe, but we will never forget where we came from and continue to work hard to give back to our roots. We are thankful for the opportunities we have seen outside of Africa, and we strive to create opportunities in our homeland as well.
Hibiscus Tea - zobo - is a popular drink in Nigeria: the birthplace of each and every petal that is used in YOMM Natural Hibiscus Tea and drinks. The YOMM hibiscus farm in Africa employs twenty people, providing opportunities for rural farmers to provide basic necessities for their families: food; shelter; and education.
However you take your Vitamin C and antioxidant rich YOMM tea (cool & on-the-go; or hot and brewed in your favourite mug at home) - you are helping rural African farmers. Now that's something you can feel good about.
How are you giving back this year in your community?
Please comment - we'd love to hear what's making you feel good this holiday season!
