What does Stand Out. For Good mean?
Arula & Altar'd State both started with a mission to fill a gap in the retail industry and change the world for the better. We want to stand out for good in our local communities and around the world by partnering with non-profit organizations helping those in need. We support these organizations with donations (made possible by your Arula purchases) and volunteering.
How does Arula choose the non-profit organizations/How does my organization become a recipient?
We wish we could partner with all charitable and/or fundraising efforts, but unfortunately, we cannot, though we are always looking at requests. The best way to work with us would be to contact your local store. You can find a store listing here.
What organizations you support?
We focus our give back in three primary areas of need:
  • Mission Monday: In this program, Altar’d State partners on a local level with 501c(3) approved organizations that feed the hungry, assist service men and women, boost self-esteem, love on those undergoing treatment, house the homeless, and more. These partnerships are determined by each individual Altar’d State, Arula and Tullabee Store in our local communities as they know best the need in that marketplace. 10% of that store's net profits from each Monday during the season are donated to the selected organization. The beneficiary organizations change on a monthly based on an overarching theme chosen by Altar'd State (such as Children & Education). Each store then chooses an organization that fits the seasonal theme.
  • Coprodeli USA: Our home office partners with Coprodeli on serving the disadvantaged in the countries of Peru and Ecuador, particularly children.
  • Special circumstances: We jump in when a catastrophic event or need arises such as a tornado, hurricane, wildfire or earthquake and also look at other philanthropic/charitable efforts on a case-by-case basis. Examples of current or past involvement are Habitat for Humanity, Big Brothers Big Sister Organizations and Lifewater International and many more.
