MUMBOT SHOP is dedicated to contributing not only to the handmade initiative and supporting the handmade community, but also donating to charity. Along with the Haiti efforts and miscellaneous natural disaster efforts, I have partnered in the past with TREES FOR THE FUTURE contributing a percentage of my proceeds to planting trees in developing countries. I also donate to arborday.org and farmsanctuary.org and more!
