4imprint® Announces 543 one by one® Promotional Products Awarded in 2014
(OSHKOSH, Wis.) –As a way to give back, 4imprint donated more than $250,000 in promotional items through its one by one®charitable giving program in 2014. The one by one program donates $500 of in-kind promotional products to charitable causes throughout the United Sates and Canada. The goal for the program is to provide at least one $500 grant to one organization each business day; a goal 4imprint surpassed in 2014.
The one by one program helped a wide range of organizations in the last year, providing unique products branded for their causes. One such organization was a charity in Arizona called the Angel Heart Pajama Project. This nonprofit ordered T-shirts to be paired with hand-sewn pajama bottoms, for children in need. Another organization, the Illinois Eye-Bank, used its grant for branded glass picture frames that honored individuals who gave the gift of sight and/or life through eye, organ and tissue donations.
“The best part of the one by one program is getting to know all of these amazing organizations and seeing the good they are doing in their communities,” notes 4imprint CEO Kevin Lyons-Tarr. “It is inspiring to see the valuable work they do.”
In 2014, nearly 3,000applications were submitted to the one by one program with 543 organizations receiving $500 worth of product donations. With so many charities in need, 4imprint donated product samples to an additional 1,573 applicants to help with their efforts.
Any U.S. 501(c)(3) organization, registered Canadian charity, school or religious organization can submit applications a minimum of two months before the items are needed, allowing time for applications to be processed and products to be delivered in time for scheduled events. Apply online for the 2015 one by one program at https://onebyone.4imprint.com.
In the fourth quarter of 2014, 4imprint donated $102,500 to 205 organizations.
