Our Co-Founder and CEO, Shane Maloney, has been fortunate to travel to many exotic and remote places around the world. (The more remote the better!) In that time, people from far and wide have touched his heart. One such case was a chance meeting in 2006 with a local in Cambodia who worked for the Halo Trust.

For over thirty years The Halo Trust, has been saving lives and helping war-torn communities recover, by making their land safe.

When conflict ends, land is all too often littered with landmines and other dangerous explosives. Families live in fear and poverty. They can’t plant crops or graze cattle and day-to-day activities like getting to school and fetching water are fraught with risk. True peace doesn’t come until their land is safe.

They do this by recruiting and training local men and women to clear landmines in their own communities. With their earnings, they can rebuild their lives. Some buy livestock, others plant crops or even start a business. They are once again in control of their own destiny.

Having already toured the country and seen the devastating impact of landmines on Cambodians, young and old, the work of the Halo Trust suddenly became front and center of Shane’s mind.

Therefore, Lifetick humbly contributes money from every Lifetick subscription, via an annual donation to The Halo Trust. We’ve been doing this since we first began and will continue for as long as there is a need.

It is very easy to get caught up in our own goals in life, but it is also not out of reach to become a part of the worthiest of goals, even if it is in some small way. Thank you for taking the time to read about this.
