Celebrating Companies that Pledge

Every company that signs the Pledge will be recognized and have the opportunity to share their stories of caring.


We created GoodSteps® with the sole purpose of carrying out our mission to do good in the world and to empower people – our customers – to do good. With every (high quality, hand-made) product sold, we donate 20% of the purchase price to our incredible non-profit giving partners, MANA Nutrition and the Atlanta Community Food Bank. The work they do to fight hunger and the good they provide is why we’re here! Our customers actively participate in fulfilling our mission both by choosing GoodSteps® and by choosing which organization their give will be directed towards: they are truly shopping on purpose.

Resurgens Orthopaedics

At Resurgens Orthopaedics, we help our patients “get moving again” by providing excellent, innovative, patient-focused and comprehensive orthopaedic care. But our commitment to get moving again extends beyond our practice and into the communities where we live and work. Toward that end, The Resurgens Charitable Foundation was founded in 2001 with the mission to support and promote active lifestyles for people of all ages and abilities.

Hope-Beckham Inc.

At Hope-Beckham Inc., we believe that there is more to life than making a profit. With roughly half of our clients being not-for-profit organizations, we make it a priority to help people understand the needs are in our community and go beyond what is required for the job to further the cause.

Silverton Mortgage

Giving back has always been a part of our mission at Silverton Mortgage. In 2012, we started The Silverton Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to making rent or mortgage payments for families with critically or chronically ill children. Since then, The Silverton Foundation has grown significantly, helping more and more families stay in their homes when they need it the most.
