The Washing Machine Project & RS Components Fundraising Partnership

Our purpose is making amazing happen and that's why we've chosen to partner with The Washing Machine Project and The Washing Machine Project Foundation as our first global charity partner. This small charity has developed an innovative, off-grid solution to help people in hard-hit communities around the world to wash their clothes. They share our ambition to inspire a more sustainable world through education and innovative solutions that improve lives and were really excited about supporting them over the next three years.
