Dr. Julien Ake, MAP International’s country director for Liberia and Cote d’Ivoire, spoke about the global Christian health organization when he visited with the staff of Buckhead-based Crown & Caliber in August.
At that time, Crown & Caliber Founder & CEO Hamilton Powell also presented a donation to Dr. Ake to continue the local company’s support of MAP International’s work to save lives and develop healthier families and communities.
Crown & Caliber is the first ever online company focused exclusively on buying watches. The process is unique and provides customers with a secure and easy way to sell their watch. Customers can submit a free quote on the Crown & Caliber website and receive a fair and accurate quote for their watch from the company’s horological experts within three days of submission.
Crown & Caliber’s “Buying Time Movement” supports MAP International’s efforts to meet the needs of disadvantage children in South American and Africa. With each watch Crown & Caliber purchases, the company makes a donation to MAP and “buys time” for 12 children by providing them with essential medical treatments, such as deworming treatments, dehydration-based treatments, and antibiotics.
Crown & Caliber has donated to MAP International since purchasing its first watch in January 2012. Donations are sent each month, and Crown and Caliber has purchased more than 100,000 Z-paks for children in third world countries with its donations.
