The ‘Altar of Love Foundation’ is Jaya Lakshmi and Ananda’s dedication to donating to charities, non-profits and social, environmental and spiritual causes. They are dedicated to donating at a minimum $500 twice a year to different causes.
Much of their charity donations have been in collaboration with Luna and Larry’s Coconut Bliss. At events that Coconut Bliss sponsors with Jaya Lakshmi and Ananda, Coconut Bliss ice cream is served out by-donation. The funds that are collected from these events are then matched by Jaya Lakshmi and Ananda as well as Coconut Bliss and donated to a charity/organization of their choosing. Together, they have donated well over $10,000!
Here are a list of the charity organizations that they have given to:
1. The non-GMO movement in several states (OR, CA and WA).
