Our Charitable Missions

Organic Originals, LLC is dedicated to helping make the world better, one charitable cause at a time. Here are two of them:


Hot Sauce 4 Heroes


When we founded the company, we decided that U.S. and allied troops deserved a gourmet taste of home.


We wanted our soldiers to be reminded that folks here at home care about them and want their daily sustenance to be more exciting than military issue. Our sauce enhances the taste of every kind of food – yup, even rations – so we figured it was a slam dunk. The label pretty much says it all:

“You, the brave men and women who serve our country overseas, are in our thoughts. We wanted to do something to make your arduous daily life just a little more palatable. This hot sauce will make any food taste better. Even military food. Thank you for your service, and come home safe.”

We send a few cases a month through several different organizations who help distribute donations to the troops.

After all, who deserves great hot sauce more than our fighting men and women?  


Fundacion Santuario Silvestre de Osa

Wildlife Sanctuary

Years ago on a Latin American trip DeeDee and George visited this non-profit wildlife sanctuary (, a charitable organization wholly committed to providing rehabilitation for orphaned, injured and displaced animals indigenous to the southern zone of the Costa Rican jungle. Touched by the poignant stories of these endangered creatures, they’ve pledged that a percentage of proceeds from every bottle of Pura Vida! Gourmet Chile Pepper Sauces will go to the Silvestre Sanctuary.
