For 2018, the Neora Ripple Foundation has set a goal of raising $1 million USD for our partnerships around the world.
Through corporate contributions, campaigns, and the generosity of Neora’s Independent Brand Partners, we hope to achieve this milestone and support World Vision and Big Brothers Big Sisters as they work toward giving young people hope for a brighter future in Australia, Austria, Canada, Colombia, Korea, Mexico and the United States.
2018 GOAL: $1 MILLION USD
Big Brothers Big Sisters
The Neora Ripple Foundation partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters has had a life-long impact on thousands of young people in the United States, Canada, Australia and Austria.
Since 2012, more than 3,500 deserving kids have benefited from the love and guidance of a caring, adult mentor as a result of Neora’s commitment and support.
Youth who have had a mentor through Big Brothers Big Sisters are more likely to graduate from high school, complete a college degree, give back to society and enjoy loving relationships than their non-mentored peers.*
In fact, youth mentored through Big Brothers Big Sisters are:
46% less likely to begin using illegal drugs;
27% less likely to begin using alcohol;
52% less likely to skip school;
33% less likely to use violence.**

World Vision is the Neora Ripple Foundation’s partner for Mexico, Colombia and Korea, joining forces with Independent Brand Partners in those countries to provide educational and entrepreneurial opportunities for children living in poverty.
World Vision provides a wide variety of programming in 100 countries around the world. These programs align with the Neora vision of making people better by providing children and families with the tools to lift themselves out of poverty.
As little as $35 USD per month provides a child with a full range of services, including leadership development workshops, educational opportunities, lessons in entrepreneurship, mentoring, as well as access to clean water, nutrition and healthcare.
