FORT COLLINS, Colo., Feb. 20, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Joy Organics (www.joyorganics.com), the leading provider of organically grown, 100 percent THC-free CBD oil products, announced today that their first annual "Joy Day" promotion will result in over 200,000 meals being provided to displaced children via Greater Hope Project, established in Northern Uganda to help meet the needs of children living in refugee camps due to the South Sudanese conflict.
With the draw of a 40 percent discount, throughout the day, nearly 5,000 products were purchased on Feb. 15. This response caused a server crash, overwhelmed their fulfillment center and halted merchant processing. The Joy Organics team readied the entire staff for the campaign but nothing could have prepared them for the overwhelming engagement that resulted.
"The response was more than we could have hoped for," said company co-founder Joy Smith, who learned of Hope Primary School during multiple humanitarian missions to Northern Uganda. "Because of the overwhelming support of our customers, half of whom were new to Joy Organics, thousands of children whose daily nutritional needs are not being met will receive a nutritious breakfast and lunch for a full month."
Refugee camps throughout Northern Uganda were established due to the South Sudanese conflict, which has resulted in 2.2 million people fleeing their homes and country. While meant to be temporary, these encampments are now feeling more permanent for the hundreds of thousands of men, women and children caught in the net of war.
"We're incredibly grateful to those who took part in Joy Day," said Smith, who launched the company with her husband of 30-plus years and works with three of her children in the family business. "They've made an enormous impact on the lives of very deserving children."
Joy Organics has risen to the top of the booming CBD oil market via their proprietary oil extraction process using organically grown hemp, rigorous third-party testing and full transparency. The result is that consumers are confident they're purchasing the purest pharmaceutical grade, 100 percent THC-free CBD products available — ranging from tinctures to softgels to combat pain, sleep and energy issues to the first comprehensive CBD skincare line and even pet products.
"We're now committed to making Joy Day an annual event each Feb. 15," added Smith. "Our company mission is to provide our customers with the highest-quality ingredients and improve the lives of one million people this year through our products. Though Joy Day may look different every year, it just makes sense to extend that effort to others in need."
