Five & Two is Mary Square's philanthropic initiative that provides resources to people in need through our corporate partnership with World Help.
The Five & Two Program is named after Jesus’s Parable of multiplying five loaves of bread and two fish to feed thousands. Similarly, Mary Square’s goal is to invest in people, and allow that investment to multiply.
“Our Five & Two Program” is an initiative we’ve dreamed about since the company formed in 2011. Our partnership with World Help makes this dream a reality by providing resources to communities around the world,” said Kelly Shiley, CEO of Mary Square. “Our mantra is 'more than a gift'. We want to make a long-term impact in lives of people worldwide.”
In July of 2016, Mary Square sent several team members on a mission trip to with WorldHelp to the villages in Uganda and Rwanda. They saw firsthand the impact that wells were having on local communities and how much work is still left to be done. In 2016, Mary Square was able to donate over $60,000 toward various projects including fixing wells, building safe houses for girls in Thailand, and donating Bibles to regions of the world where there is no access to God’s Word. In 2017, Mary Square will continue to expand the Identity Collection to raise funds for safe housing for women in Thailand. We also will continue to fund clean water projects around the world.
