4imprint Gives Back: Promotional Products Retailer Donates to 80 Nonprofits (and counting!) in 2011
(OSHKOSH, Wis.) – Promotional products retailer, 4imprint, donated in-kind to 47 nonprofit organizations and charities throughout the U.S. and Canada in the third quarter of 2011 as part of its one by one™ philanthropic giving program. These donations come in addition to the 113 donations already made in the first and second quarters of this year.
“These nonprofit organizations and charities do such wonderful work to make the world a better place,” explains Kevin Lyons-Tarr, president of 4imprint. “They are a humbling inspiration to us all. The one by one program is the least we can do to thank them for the difference they make each day. We look forward to partnering with many more nonprofits to do the same in the months ahead.”
The one by one program aims to help deserving nonprofits increase awareness for their organizations, reach new audiences, promote events, thank supporters and more through the use of promotional products. 4imprint has donated $80,000 worth of products to nonprofits in 2011 and more than $680,000 since the one by one program first launched in 2006.
Selected program applicants receive a $500 in-kind donation of promotional products. The program also offers a donation of free product samples to charitable organizations that may have applied but did not receive a one by one grant. So far this year, 4imprint has donated free product samples to more than 900 organizations.
4imprint is now accepting applications for the fourth quarter of its 2011 one by one program online at http://onebyone.4imprint.com. Any 501(c) 3 organization, registered Canadian charity, school or religious organization is encouraged to apply. Interested organizations are asked that applications be submitted a minimum of two (2) months before items will be needed for use.
