ALDO Fights AIDS
From its inception in 1972, the ALDO Group has been founded on the principles of love, respect and integrity. Beyond simply words, these are values that are instilled in everything we do. The ALDO Group has been involved in the fight against AIDS since the mid-80s when very few people and even fewer companies were willing to publicly support those affected by the disease. Since then, the ALDO brand has actively worked to raise awareness and funds for the cause, through various product and marketing campaigns as well as annual charitable donations through ALDO FIGHTS AIDS.

Not In Our Name Organization
NION's "Statement of Conscience", drafted in spring 2002, first lists a series of criticisms of the Bush Administration and (secondarily) the U. S. Congress and calls on the people of the U.S. "...to resist the policies and overall political direction that have emerged since September 11, 2001, and which pose grave dangers to the people of the world."
Among the specific principles advocated in the statement are the right of self-determination for peoples and nations and the importance of due process and dissent. The statement expresses "shock" at "the horrific events of September 11, 2001" but, evoking "similar scenes in Baghdad, Panama City, and, a generation ago, Vietnam", describes Iraq as "a country which has no connection to the horror of September 11", and deplores the administration's "spirit of revenge" and the "simplistic script of 'good vs. evil': "In our name, the Bush administration, with near unanimity from Congress, not only attacked Afghanistan but arrogated to itself and its allies the right to rain down military force anywhere and anytime." Referring to the U.S. government's treatment of immigrants in the wake of September 11, the statement accuses the U.S. government of creating "two classes of people: those to whom the basic rights of the U.S. legal system are at least promised, and those who now seem to have no rights at all", and evokes "the infamous concentration camps for Japanese-Americans in World War II".
Wildlife Works mission is to harness the power of the global consumer to create innovative and sustainable solutions for wildlife conservation. They call their radical new approach "Consumer Powered Conservation"
Founded in San Francisco in 1997, they are the worlds first business designed from the ground up around a consumer brand that stands for wildlife conservation. Their promise to all our customers is that they use the proceeds of our product sales to save the wildlife we all love. They achieve this by protecting wilderness and providing jobs, building schools and providing other economic benefits for those people that share their land and resources with wild animals.
In their first location in Kenya, Africa, they created our 80,000 acre Rukinga Wildlife Sanctuary, where elephants, cheetahs and 46 other large mammal species now roam freely. In addition, they built and operate an Eco-factory next to the sanctuary, where we employ members of the local community to create some of their products. These jobs have radically changed the way they view the wildlife. Before they came, they saw wildlife as either bushmeat or money, and were poaching, clear-cutting and rapidly destroying their natural environment. With Wildlife Works they can earn enough to feed their families and send their kids to school without killing wild animals. The wildlife has become an asset to them worth much more alive than dead. The poaching has stopped and the animals are returning.
