Most of the funds raised through the sales of “More than a Mist by MONAT” have gone to organizations serving underserved youth with the $1 million grant program established by MONAT Gratitude, the organization's philanthropic arm.
Also, taking into account the devastation caused by the recent Hurricanes Fiona and Ian, the company redirected a portion of the total to support affected communities in Puerto Rico, Florida, and Canada.
These are the recipient organizations with hurricane relief efforts:
- The Salvation Army Puerto Rico
- Canadian Red Cross
- The Salvation Army Canada
- Farm Share and The Salvation Army Florida
Lu Urdaneta, MONAT Global chief culture officer and MONAT Gratitude CEO, stated:
After learning of the devastation across Puerto Rico, Florida, and Canada’s Atlantic Coast from the recent hurricanes, we knew our resources from this initiative could be impactful.
