August 2020 People's Choice Voting
The Wise Ape Team believes in giving back to the world and inspiring others to do the same. That’s why each one of our functional tea blends has been officially partnered with a different nonprofit organization to donate 10% of profits and raise awareness for an impactful cause.
Our Lemon Vibration tea gets to play a fun role within our nonprofit partner program, serving as the People’s Choice for our quarterly donations. Suggestions are accepted each quarter on a rolling basis for non-profit organizations that you, our Wise Ape Tribe, would like to see donations made to, and each quarter a different organization receives the gift of 10% of the Lemon Vibration profits!
This quarter we have 4 non-profit organizations from your suggestions up for the vote to receive the next distribution of profit donations. We’ve outlined the highlights about why each organization is incredible below. We love them all and can’t wait to see who gets the goods.

While continuing to grow the impact of their Lifeline substantially, The Trevor Project has also launched on-demand digital services for youth to reach out 24/7 over text and online.
