Wine for a Cause

If you are looking for a way to give back while drinking wine, here is an idea!

While taking one of my classes in SDSU’s ‘Business of Wine’ Program I met Alex. Alex is passionate about wine and also is passionate about pugs! She hosts wine parties that donate 10% of the profits to Pug Rescue. 

Interested?? There are a couple of ways to drink wine and give back. One way is to purchase wine and products on the ONEHOPE website. ONEHOPE partners with non-profit organizations and provides a percentage of their profits to their non-profit partners. Their non-profit partners are vetted using a 15 point system. Another way, is to host a party, and choose a 503C charity of your choosing, with 10% of the proceeds going to your selected charity.

ONEHOPE was founded by eight friends in their 20’s interested in working together, while providing an impact.

ONEHOPE has made more than $3 million in donations including:

* Providing 46,000 with global health care

* 49,000 forever homes for shelter animals

* 1.8 million meals for children

In case you are wondering about the wine, ONEHOPE had connected with Michael Mondavi at a trade show. The wines are custom blended for ONEHOPE by the Mondavi vineyards. These wines have won awards and an over 90% rating.

If you are local to the San Diego area, please get in touch with Alex Layson @ 2pugfull@gmail.com to host a wine party for you. You can buy ONEHOPE products, or host your own wine party!

Let me know how it goes!!
