The 4 Pillars of our Giveback Mission

  1. You Have to
    Start Somewhere
    The task of changing the world can be daunting. We started with our community, our 1-for-1 giveback pledge and our mission to defeat dehydration globally.
  2. The Importance
    of Community
    We lay aside the "me" and prioritize the "we" through action. We know that, together, we can accomplish anything.
  3. Connecting Through
    a Universal Language
    The most important moments of our giveback trips are when we make genuine connections with the people we meet. Whether it’s sports, dance, or handing out sticks, we find a universal language that can help us connect.
  4. Creating a Culture
    of Service
    We hire people who are passionate about changing the world, and create a culture of giving in our own office so the effect can ripple out into the world.

Over 2.5 Million Sticks Donated

In 2014, we donated 500 sticks to a homeless shelter in Los Angeles. It wasn’t a lot, but we knew we had to start somewhere if we wanted to make a real impact. The next year, we donated 28,000 sticks to Haiti. Our mission grew larger. In 2018, we partnered with Direct Relief, one of the largest humanitarian organizations in the world, in order to expand our reach. With their help, we sent our product to all corners of the globe. By 2020, we surpassed 2.5 million sticks donated around the world. Below are some of the more well-known locations where we’ve donated product.

Giveback Timeline

It all started with the devastating 2010 earthquake in Haiti, when our Founder & CEO Brandin Cohen learned about the extreme conditions in the slums of Port-au-Prince. Deeply moved by the stories he read, he raised the money to send 20,000 meals to the city in a 30-day period. The success of this venture showed him that, when we harness the power of community, we have the power to make a real difference. It also inspired the company’s lifelong mission to give to people in need. In 2012, Liquid I.V. was founded upon the basis of creating groundbreaking products to fuel life’s adventures, with the ultimate goal of helping those who are less fortunate.
