We have a special place for startups and ideas that give a piece of their revenue to bettering the world. Entrepreneurs that think of creative ways to pursue their passions while helping solve global issues should be applauded and we want to applaud the founders of HeadCase Sound.
With the drive to bettering the world through music, HeadCase Sound created a pair of headphones that combines the high quality sound from brands you know like Dr. Dre Beats, Bose, and Sennheiser with a cool and stylish design like that of SkullCandy. Along with being visually appealing, high quality and affordable their headphones come in 5 sexy matte colors with each one being teamed up with an international charity. With each headphone sale consumers choose their headphone color to give food, footwear, health, hydration or shelter to people who need it. Co-founder Joshua Fairbairn tells us:
“I started HeadCase Sound because I had a passion to listen to music through high quality headphones while keeping them as affordable as possible. I knew that by doing this I had an opportunity to make some noise for the world and unite people under one cause. The #MoreThanMusic movement is about more than a premium quality pair of headphones, it is about helping to combat against extreme global poverty.”
HeadCase Sound provides a detailed transparent look at how your dollar goes toward helping people around the world. For instance, from the sale of 25 black headsets, 6 days of aftercare is attainable for the ODW Human Trafficking Fund; 1 yellow headset provides proceeds to Soles4Souls and 10 pairs of shoes to those in need; 1 red headset provides 5 polio vaccinations courtesy of The Global Poverty Project; 5 blue headsets helps 2 children receive health kits; and 40 white headsets supports The Adventure Project and their ability to provide The MoneyMaker Pump to irrigate 2 acres of land per day.
