Better Snacks for a Better World

SkinnyDipped family, we have you to thank. Because of your loyal support, we are now working with the Whitaker Peace & Development Initiative on what we know will be an impactful charitable partnership. Founded by the artist and activist Forest Whitaker, WPDI promotes values of peace, reconciliation and social development within vulnerable communities around the world that have been affected by conflict and instability.

What we’re doing

We’re pledging $400,000 to support women’s empowerment through an entrepreneurship program in South Sudan, which will provide funding to women for both education and small business development.

A place that’s close to our founder’s heart.

Val first visited the Sudan in 1981. She holds a deep affection for the people who welcomed and cared for her during her year long journey there. Newly independent South Sudan is a fragile country that has seen years of violent conflict - conflict that oppresses women, especially. In South Sudan, women suffer the highest maternal mortality rate in the world, and there are few opportunities for access to economic, educational and health services. 


Breezy and Val Griffith have been empowered by their own entrepreneurial journey, and they are deeply moved by the circumstances faced by the women of South Sudan. The entire SkinnyDipped team is committed to helping these women in the fields of education and entrepreneurship, with the expertise of the WPDI.

We look forward to sharing more with you as our partnership grows.

And, as always, we want to thank you. From the bottom of our hearts. We wouldn’t be able to do this without you.
