Keep It Cut owners, Jacob and Josh, built the business with the vision that businesses are more than just economic machines. They believe that businesses have a responsibility to the well-being of their employees, their clients, and their local and global communities. Putting their money where their mouth is, Jacob and Josh contribute a portion of Keep It Cut profits each month to KIVA and ask you to join their team today to help alleviate poverty around the globe.
In addition to KIVA, Keep It Cut also is a drop off location for the Cell Phones for Soldiers program (see below for explanation of program). Josh grew up in a military family for his younger years, and was in the Air National Guard for 6 years. Though not in the military himself, Jacob grew up next to the same Airforce base as Josh and was surrounded by friends with parents in the military. Both Jacob and Josh saw first hand how meaningful it was for their friends and family to have contact with their overseas military family members. Donate an old cell phone today to support our troops and their families.
Kiva – The idea is simple.
Step 1) Loan money to help others start businesses in developing countries.
Step 2) When they pay the loan back, you either withdraw the money or loan it again to a new project.
This program was created to make permanent change in people’s lives by giving them hope and investing in their future. You keep complete control of the decisions in deciding whose dreams you want to help fuel. We loan a percentage of our sales every month.
Start your KIVA account today and join our team to help alleviate poverty one loan at a time.
Cell Phones For Soldiers
Cell Phones for soldiers was started in 2004 to help soldiers that are away from their families call home. Their organization collects used or outdated cell phones and then recycles the components. The proceeds from that are used to purchase calling cards. Each phone of $5 in value provides 2.5 hours of talk time for our troops to call home. This is a great way to give back to our community with little financial burden. All you have to do is bring in your old phone to Keep It Cut(no charger or manual required) and we will mail them in.
