Another Reason to Buy a Hot Tub: Bullfrog Donates Spa to Humanitarian Effort
Date:7/8/2010

Bullfrog International, manufacturer of advanced hot tubs, recently donated a Model 362 portable spa to the Eagle Condor Humanitarian foundation to benefit several impoverished villages in Northern Peru.

(Vocus) July 8, 2010 -- Bullfrog International LC, manufacturers of Bullfrog Spas with JetPaks, recently donated a Model 362 portable hot tub for auction at a fundraising event for Eagle Condor Humanitarian.

The Eagle Condor mission statement reads: “Enriching lives, empowering people while building self-reliance.” The group provides aid, micro loans, and continuing education for people in the villages of Northern Peru.

Unfortunately the impact of the economy on family budgets in wealthier nations can have a ripple effect that reaches to areas of the world that rely on outside help. Charity Navigator reports: “The data for 2008 showed the largest drop in private contributions in the 53 years it has been tracked.”* Charities like Eagle Condor know that it is even more important than ever to have corporate fundraising help these days.

Bullfrog Spas Director of Sales and Marketing, Jaden Kemp, commented, “Bullfrog is happy to do what we can with great organizations like Eagle Condor to benefit people in impoverished areas.” Kemp continues, “The good thing about a program like this is that, even though someone gets a really nice spa for their donation, that money that they donated really goes a long way in places where a dollar or two may be a full day’s income.”

The Eagle Condor website describes the economic situation in places where they provide aid:

Eagle Condor works in Northern Peru in the cities of Chiclayo, Piura and Trujillo. The unemployment rate unfortunately reaches more than 60% in this area. Sixty-four percent of the families in Lambayeque department are categorized as the poorest of the poor (living on less than $1 per person per day). There are few programs in the north area to help small businesses to develop and grow. Countless families survive on a budget of $US 30.00 a month. Many families live outside Chiclayo in sandy desert areas without water, sewer systems and sometimes electricity. Those that have employment are often underpaid; have to work long hours and more than five day a week including holidays and Sundays to keep their jobs. The migration to other countries or to Lima is high, not always solving their problems.

The money raised by Eagle Condor is used to build schools, provide vocational training, improve sanitation, build needed community and private facilities, and also to fund micro loans that help people build small businesses to support their families.

One recipient of a micro loan used it to build a small restaurant business at her home. The Eagle Condor website reports that Maria is very grateful to Eagle Condor for the training and loan that she received. She says, “Before, my life was a disaster economically. Now, I have independence. . . The loans are helping us achieve success.”

Bullfrog International and Eagle Condor would like to thank those that contribute to this worthy cause. The family that purchased the Bullfrog Model 362 hot tub in the charity auction reports that they are enjoying the many benefits of the JetPak System in their Bullfrog Spa, including decreased stress, better overall health, and quality time they spend together.
