cloudburst=[DE: Wolkenbruch, Platzregen] phonetically: [klaudbörst]
.

A cloudburst is basically a big amount of rainfall in a short period of time.
We are fascinated by nature, we think it's amazing how clouds are transporting and circulating life-giving water all around the globe, making life possible. 

Our brandname, cloudburst is also the symbol of our social business approach:

As vapour particles gather, they condense to form a beautiful cloud. Then, as they reach a good density, they rain down, nourishing fresh water.

At cloudburst, we aim to form a cloud of charitable donations. After every purchase from our store we gather funds in our virtually generated cloud and let the money rain down just as nourishing rain on different charitable organisations, 3 times a year.

Every purchase makes our cloud grow, 20% of the gross profits of every sold item is going to be collected in our cloud.

With your purchase you are making the cloud grow and helping people in need receive vital donations.
