A beautiful watch can help tell the story of who you are, make you feel special when received as a gift and complement the outfit of the day; but, investing in an Obaku watch can also mean investing in Life. Every year Obaku donates to various charities, most often where you see a very direct effect.
Obaku’s “Watches for Life” program has built a house for a family in the Philippines who have been homeless since Typhoon Yolanda devastated the country in 2014. Coming up soon Obaku will create a fund, where youth from this small village in the Philippines, can apply for having their education funded.
Also, every year, in lieu of Christmas presents to their partners, Obaku sponsors an orphanage in Thailand with the Baan Unrak Project. Last year Obaku built a new house for the charity.
Obaku seeks to breathe life into not only society’s future, but also the planet’s future. Obaku’s latest partnership is Save the Forest. For every watch and necklace sold $10 is donated to an organization called Conservation International (www.conservation.org). Obaku believes this organization’s work is extremely important for our future. In their newest campaign, acclaimed actor Kevin Spacey, speaking as the “Rainforest” says: “Humans making air? That’ll be fun to watch!” The organization works to conserve forests around the world. “Nature doesn’t need people. People need nature.” Watch the amazing campaign at www.natureisspeaking.org.
Last but not least, in Obaku’s offices, they use the 3 R’s program: Recycle, Reduce and Reuse. “We seek to have a very low ecological footprint, controlling our waste, not only at our offices but also at our manufacturing facility. We have eco-friendly batteries, our packing is almost 90% recyclable, and we are constantly searching for creative and safe ways to be environmentally and socially responsible.”
