Now it’s my turn to give back.
I’m a huge advocate of using my superpowers for good. I spend every day of my life working with amazing organizations, creating fantastic fundraisers using my favorite marketing medium, promotional products. As a company, we have put the pieces and parts together to do the same for truly wonderful programs that change the life of those facing a cancer diagnosis. This is our attempt to show the world how much we care about breast cancer research. At the same time, we’re hoping to peel back that curtain a little along the way so if there is a fundraiser that our supporters would like to tackle for something you care about, we are here for you. We think it’s pretty awesome and we want to share that awesomeness with the world.
Promotional products are branded products and apparel that the story of a brand. Our business curates and designs all the things with corporate messaging and makes a brand shine. We are passionate about the medium as a marketing star and it became very apparent early on as we started working with for-profit, and especially, non-profits that we could make a difference with the thing we were good at.
So when The American Cancer Society and the Real Men Wear Pink Campaign jumped into our lap, we took the call and accepted the challenge. It’s important to us. It’s important to so many. We knew that it was time to use our superpower for good.
The hard work, and platform development, and trial and error, and fundraising that we had been working so hard to do successfully for others has taught us that we can really make a difference. In true fashion, it’s time for us to connect commerce to purpose to tell the story of your brand, or in this instance, an amazing message of hope. The plan is simple. For thirty days, my amazing partner in crime has accepted the challenge to be a 2021 class member of the Real Men Wear Pink Detroit campaign. He’s the most amazing sport and very rarely draws the line, even when it’s a pink satin jacket and headband while carrying a sparkling can coolie.
We promised amazing promotional products to serve as fundraising rockstars and they are leading the charge. We have a t-shirt representing The Spirit of Detroit and a journal that I designed alongside my mother, which I am so incredibly proud to present to others affected by breast cancer to ease their treatment journey.
We’ve created activity challenge groups and obtained matching funds offers and are on the way to a truly meaningful contribution to The American Cancer Society and their quest to alleviate and eradicate breast cancer.
Once again, we need to thank our tribe. Our industry network has pulled through and helped create a wardrobe of pink that is one to be envied for our fearless Man in Pink. Our friends and family have once again rallied and opened their pockets, liked, shared, and commented on this quest we are on. Complete strangers have shaken our hands and contributed to the cause and told us their stories, and for that, we are forever grateful.
To Amy and the team at The American Cancer Society, a million thank yous for allowing us to be part of your story. To each and every one of you who has taken the time to listen to my story, I appreciate every second you spent listening or reading. The task is coming to an end, but it’s not over yet. We need your help to make strides. Please consider a donation, a matching offer, a purchase, or a gift. Your dollar could change a life like mine.
