4imprint Donates More Than $128,000 in Promotional Products with one by one Program in 2011
(OSHKOSH, Wis.) – Promotional products retailer 4imprint helped a non-profit, school or religious organization every business day of 2011, donating over $128,000 in in-kind promotional items to support a wide range of causes and events through its one by one philanthropic giving program.
Since 4imprint launched the one by one program, six years ago, the company has awarded more than $800,000 in in-kind donations to charitable organizations in the U.S. and Canada. In 2011 alone, 4imprint distributed nearly 1,255 product donations throughout the United States and Canada and to troops overseas.
Each business day, 4imprint donated approximately $500 worth of promotional items to a charitable cause in the U.S. and Canada. Demand for the program continues to grow. A total of 2,159 applicants requested one by one donations in 2011. In addition to providing in-kind promotional product grants to 256 organizations, 4imprint also provided product samples to 1,356 additional applicants, helping as many nonprofits, schools and community organizations as possible.
“The recipients are so varied in the causes they champion,” says Kevin Lyons-Tarr, 4imprint president. “But, what unites them are the wonderful, creative ways they gain awareness and support for their causes. We’re pleased promotional products can play a small role in that work.”
4imprint is currently accepting applications for its 2012 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 to submit applications a minimum of two (2) months before items are needed for use.
