Avocados Against Anxiety
launch MAY 1, 2021
Our Social Mission & Responsibility
Avocado Against Anxiety was established as the official social mission of The Avocado Club to bring awareness to the world on behalf of those who suffer from (or know others that experience) the very common sensations of anxiety & depression.
The avocado itself actually contains stress-relieving properties! Studies have shown that feelings of anxiety may stem from a deficiency in Vitamin B. And guess which of your favorite fruits contain Vitamin B? That’s right. The avocado. We are a happiness brand and if we’re going to name our club after one of the happiest natural ingredients on the planet, we’re going to back it up every single day.
This very special social cause is behind everything we do and it starts at the top. Our founder, Brandon is a long-time enemy (and friend) of anxiety & depression. After moving out-of-state for college in 2008, Brandon began experiencing both mental & physical stress due to the overwhelming demand of college coursework, being away from family and having little-to-no direction in life. Today in 2021, he still experiences moments of anxiety & stress but he’s getting better each and every day. Also, he’s the one writing this (hi!).
How To Participate
The unfortunate truth is that many of us can relate to the above. The fortunate truth however is that there are many amazing organizations around the world that were specifically established to help combat anxiety & depression with helpful resources such including guides, articles, anti-stress hacks and more. So where does Avocados Against Anxiety fit in?
Today, when you purchase Hottee Aguacatee hot sauce from our website, we’ll donate $1.00 for every bottle sold to The Mental Health Coalition - a very special organization whose mission is “to build a like-minded community who will work together to de-stigmatize all mental health conditions, enabling equitable access to vital resources and support for all.”
Pretty amazing, right?
