House of Cinnamon is currently involved in three social responsibility programmes.
1) Under Our 'House of Cinnamon Shoe Project', we accept worn but wearable shoes for the Nkhensani Orphanage based in Alexandra by offering customers a “one-pair-for-one-pair” 20% discount for donating such shoes when purchasing a pair of Cinnamons.

2) At House of Cinnamon, we understand that education is the key to success and, therefore, we sponsor children's schooling needs through the Bakomoso Education Trust.
We are currently sponsoring Lerato Ncube, a 15 year old girl presently in Grade 9 at the Bishop Bavin School. Her favourite subjects are Maths and English, and she recently won a prize for achieving between 70% and 80% for both subjects. Apart from this, she also started a bible study group together with her dormitory peers in boarding school. When she grows up, Lerato would like to study to become a Maths Teacher.
3) House of Cinnamon stands firmly behind the notion of choosing consciously and responsibly. We have partnered with the Two Oceans Aquarium in the efforts of trying to combat environmental degradation and conserve oceanic wildlife, by producing a bamboo shopper.
