We believe that all good gifts come from God – and, since He is the best gift giver, we have committed to give generously back to a cause that is so very close to His heart: the fatherless.
Wild Olive donates 25% of all proceeds from products sold to orphan care, either through a direct donation to a charity currently caring for orphans in China or to a family working to bring home their child from China.
You might be thinking, “but it’s just a t-shirt, how can that really make a difference?” And you would not be wrong. It is just a t-shirt. But your t-shirt purchase combined with the t-shirt purchase of others is a powerful thing.
In 2014 our family used a t-shirt to raise the substantial funding we needed to bring our sweet Clementine home, all the way from China.
And in 2015 we used another t-shirt to raise the funds we needed to bring home our littlest love, Magnolia.
And, between August 2014 and August 2016, we were able to raise enough money to fund heart-mending surgeries for two incredibly precious children with another t-shirt. Over $20,000 was raised and donated to Morning Star Foster Home to care for two once-critically-ill babies who now have mended hearts.
So while it is just a t-shirt, it’s a t-shirt in the hands of a mighty God who just might be doing a mighty work on behalf of a little one halfway around the world. And He just might be inviting you to be a part.
It is our prayer that the Lord would use Wild Olive for good works. And that – through our frequently imperfect efforts – He may be glorified.
In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven. – Matthew 5:16
