We want to thank all of you for allowing us to meet our businesses goal of being a vessel for change.
We named our small family run reclaimed wood watch business Revival, because that is our mission statement wrapped in one word:
To REVIVE people, families and communities with access to clean water and healthcare.
Along this revival process we hope that we can also help encourage people to begin participating in their journey towards self evolution which includes self love, a deeper appreciation of our connectedness and the utmost importance of the present moment...NOW!
After all, NOW is all we really have, the past and the future are just stories aren’t they?!
We are a husband and wife team and we create top quality timepieces out of reclaimed (revived!) wood as a symbolic reminder of how precious NOW is.
It is because of all of you that we have met our goals.
We first launched our business 3 years ago, on Kickstarter with our hearts exploding with anticipation and plans. We met our goal of 75k and we were able to help fund the building of three wells in a small community in Tanzania called Geita. It is here that expectant mothers walk many miles to receive care for themselves and their newborns. This clinic now has access to clean fresh drinking water and sanitation.
Fast forward to 2019- So far to date with government matching initiatives we have been able to donate $50k to WaterAid Canada and 1k to SickKids. We have also donated to various local charities to the amount of 3k and we are only getting started.
This progress is because of you and we hope that with every glance of your wrist you are reminded of the power that resides within you. Your purchases have power and your intentions throughout this lifetime have great impact not only on you but on everyone. We are ALL in this together and with that level of awareness we can really start creating big ripples.
Just yesterday my 8 year old son read me a quote:
A guy walking in the seashore saw a kid picking up starfish from the sand and gently throwing them back into the ocean.
“Whatcha doing?” Asked the guy.
“These starfish were washed ashore,” said the kid “and they will die if they don’t get back to the sea.”
“But there are thousands of starfish along the shore,” said the guy. “You can’t possibly make a difference.”
The kid gently threw another starfish out into the sea.
“I made a difference to that one,” she said.
This quote sums up our intentions for 2020!!
We genuinely appreciate all of your support and encouragement. You have no idea how much joy it brings us to see you wearing our watches and how thrilled we get when you share your images on SM.
We would love to hear about your journey toward revival and your intentions for 2020 using the hashtag #theintentioncampaign
We have so much more in store, and we have big plans in furthering our mission.
Happy NEW year everyone.
