So what are we about?Simply put, we donate 50 percent of our profits to charities; and those charities must utilize 50 percent or better of their donations towards their programs. The donations we make towards these charities are created through purchases from our huge selection of products; with a primary focus on Eco Friendly, Organic and Natural Goods. But, how does it work? Well, 50 percent of the profits from every purchase will go towards one of the current charities we support; it is that simple. Though, we think the best part is knowing that you did something good for another in need while fulfilling your needs; a twofold good.
Where did our idea come from?
Well, we had reached a point in our lives that required great pondering and reflection; due to the passing of two elders in our families. It lead us to examine closely all of our life experiences, and especially, all those that had touched our lives and our hearts. Though, it really hit home when we looked at our personal trials and triumphs, and that we really needed to give back more to the community and society. But, how could we to do that? Since we were not multimillionaires. Then like a light or silver lining shining through some dark cloud. We were struck with the idea of Junction 116. And it answered our need and want to give more, and help others give more towards charity.
Junction 116 was born.However, it had to be more than just a business to make money, it had to touch the hearts and lives of others. And it had to have within it the values of those we cherished and loved. So it really needed to reflect their beliefs in charity and helping others less fortunate or dealt a bad hand in life. Thus began our almost endless debates on how it would meet those needs. And just like toppling dominoes, it just all fell into place. Though, not too surprising, because when you approach a task or project with love in your heart; things will always just flow in a harmony. As a result, Junction 116 became an online department store, and its family, friends and clientele would have a part in its growth.
