ST. CLOUD, MN, December 8, 2017 — ePromos Promotional Products, Inc., a leading online distributor of custom logo merchandise, has announced the winner of its #GivingTuesday pledge.
ePromos through its ePromos For Good efforts joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. ePromos just announced the winner of $500 in free promotional products to be used to market their non-profit organization. The winner is The Samfund, an organization raising money because being cancer-free isn’t free, especially for young adults without financial stability.
“ePromos believes that promotional products are much more than items imprinted with a logo – they have the power to drive action, inspire change, and make a lasting impact. We want to make a difference by sharing promotional products with organizations that are helping to create a better world,” said Steven Paradiso, President of ePromos. “That’s why ePromos for Good was created. We can’t wait to see how The Samfund chooses to spread the message about their efforts – #cancerisntfree.”
On November 28, Giving Tuesday, ePromos gave back in other ways as well. They supported the promotional products industry by donating to the PPAI Promotional Products Education Foundation™ which provides college scholarships. Next, ePromos set up a program where employees can donate warm socks and decorate a tree with them. All socks collected are donated to people in need via “Socks for Soul”. Last, all afternoon ePromos employees participated in the Salvation Army Bell Ringing USA.
#GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (in the US) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday. It’s a great way not only to kick off the holiday giving season but also to inspire people to collaborate in improving their local communities and to give back in impactful ways to the charities and causes they support.
“We have been incredibly inspired by the generosity in time, efforts and ideas that have brought our concept for a worldwide movement into reality,” said Henry Timms, founder of #GivingTuesday and executive director of 92Y. “As we embark on our sixth year of #GivingTuesday, we are encouraged by the early response from partner’s eager to continue making an impact in this global conversation.”
