What is Walk The Talk ?
Founded in 2012, Walk The Talk is a for-profit business with a heart dedicated to serving the impoverished around the world. WTT is a clothing and accessory company that exists to make a global impact in fighting poverty at home and abroad.
WTT is currently working on 3 platforms to fight global poverty:
1) Clothe the Naked- With every item of clothing purchased, one will be donated. When a customer wears his/her shirt or hoodie, they will be reminded that his/her purchase directly changed someone's life.
2) Feed the Hungry- A portion of each purchased bracelet and decal go to fund the development of clean water projects. The clean water will be used for drinking, cooking, and gardening.
3) Educate the Uneducated- A portion of each purchased bookmark (and future supplies) go to fund educational resources for children in areas where resources are not available.
