Theory Wellness, Inc. has raised more than $30,000 to support the humanitarian efforts by Sunflower of Peace, a Boston-based 501(c)(3) non-profit focused on helping those most affected by Russia's military invasion of Ukraine.
In April 2022, Theory made a commitment to Sunflower of Peace to donate 50% of the net profits of its THC Blueberry Lemonade Ukraine Chews cannabis-infused edibles, which contain precise doses of full-spectrum, THC-concentrate oil. To date, the chews have raised approximately $10,000 each month since launching, which is helping to provide essential supplies and critical aid to the people of 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 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."
Commenting on the partnership Thomas Winstanley, CMO of Theory Wellness, said: "Ukraine still needs our help, and without organizations like Sunflower of Peace, we would be unable to provide crucial medical and humanitarian equipment and aid used by paramedics and doctors in the areas most affected by the violence. We take pride in demonstrating that the cannabis industry can be a leader in corporate philanthropy."
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. In fact, 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 their services.
