Theory Wellness, Inc. has raised more than $30,000 to support the humanitarian efforts by Sunflower of Peace, a Boston-based non-profit focused on helping people affected by Russia's military invasion of the Ukraine.
In April 2022, Theory committed to donating to Sunflower of Peace 50% of net profits of its THC Blueberry Lemonade Ukraine Chews, which contain full-spectrum THC-concentrate oil. The chews have raised approximately $10,000 each month since launching, which are helping to provide essential supplies and critical aid to the people of the Ukraine, including orphans, internally displaced persons, and those impacted by the ongoing war.
"We are deeply saddened by the humanitarian crisis created by Russia's aggression against the people of the Ukraine," said Theory Wellness CEO and co-founder Brandon Pollock. "In this time of need, we are in awe of the work Sunflower of Peace is doing and applaud all of the organizations and individuals dedicating their time, resources, and money to assist those in need. By working with purpose-driven organizations like Sunflower of Peace, we hope to make a small but meaningful difference."
The Ukraine chews are a continuation of a philanthropic extension of Theory's business, which has supported non-profits both locally and nationally. The company's infused mints line, Statemints, has also contributed more than $30,000 to national and local non-profits that align with the company's mission. A year ago, Theory made a $45,000 donation to a local food pantry, Lorraine's Soup Kitchen, where the company operates a dispensary to launch a mobile food pantry to extend its services.
