4imprint® Announces $52,000 in 3rd Quarter In-Kind Donations to Nonprofits and Charities
(OSHKOSH, Wis.) – During the third quarter of 2012, branded promotional products retailer 4imprint donated $52,000 in in-kind grants and donations to 104 nonprofits and charities across the United States and Canada through its one by one® charitable giving program. The items ranged from bags and crayons for the Missing Children Society of Canada to USB drives for Alzheimer’s and memory care provider Abe’s Garden in Nashville, TN.
one by one charitable grants help non-profit organizations, schools and religious organizations raise awareness about charitable causes they care about in their communities. The $500 in-kind donations of promotional products are used to garner support from key audiences. Additionally, 4imprint donates product samples to those organizations that do not receive one by one grants.
As part of the one by one program, charities choose promotional items to have imprinted with their name or logo. The organizations find clever and useful ways to use the donated items, such as fans for Victory Fellowship Church in Sana Clarita, CA; sunglasses for campers at Phoenix Children’s Hospital’s Camp Rainbow; and erasers and pens for Erase Poverty in San Diego, CA.
“It’s incredible to see the creative ways these organizations use promotional products to tell their stories,” said Kevin Lyons-Tarr, president and CEO, 4imprint. “That creativity shows the passion these organizations bring to their work.”
Branded promotional products retailer 4imprint is accepting applications for its 2012 one by one program online at https://onebyone.4imprint.com. Any 501(c) 3 organization, registered Canadian charity, school or religious organization is encouraged to apply. Interested organizations are asked to submit applications a minimum of two months before items will be used, to allow time for application processing and product delivery.
