Ponde-things: solidarity dessert and water
It is important to us at Ponderosa Beach to give back. For everyone in a good position, it could be a good exercise to see the ones that aren’t in that same position, to understand their struggles, to make a pause to realize what’s actually important in life and to be able to see that helping others could be part of everyone’s life every once in a while.
When helping others, our spirit rises and by doing so we hope to encourage society to be aware and to get better.
Solidarity dessert and water at Ponderosa Beach
When we were thinking about a way to be able to contribute to others’ wellbeing being who we are, doing what we do, we immediately knew it needed to be done through what we know best: gastronomy.
Every year we give part of our benefits for Social Aids. And this is how we do it.
On our menu you will find a dish, a dessert, our water and a shot marked as ‘solidarity’. Each one of these items has its own task.
This year our ‘solidarity dessert’ is our ‘lime pie’. Every time we sell one of these desserts, we share part of the benefits. We collaborate in a humanitarian project in Ghana (Africa) helping the shelter farm-house “Country Side”. Part of the profits from the sale of our dessert are destined to the development of the cultivation and the sustainable and ecological production of Moringa by local producers.
Moving on, we have our ‘Solidarity water’. Part of the benefits of the sale of our water also goes to a non profit. If you like the bottle, you can buy it and continue collaborating for a good cause. This year we’ve chosen to collaborate with ‘Shambala’, a local Non-profit organization which takes care and works with youngsters in difficult conditions, which live almost in poverty, and youngsters that may not be able to access to decent education.
As we always say: if we add up many littles, we will have a big one!
