OtterBox has a great fundraising program where they get their employees involved in choosing where their donation dollars are spent. It is called the G3 Challenge - OtterCares (the charitable arm of OtterBox) 'gives' each OtterBox employee a $200 certificate to GROW for the non profit of their choice.
We think it's a fantastic program! That's why we teamed up with one of the OtterBox employees to create these sweatshirts to raise money for Respire Haiti, an organization whose mission is to "encourage, educate and empower restaveks, orphans and vulnerable children." From the Otter employee, "We are doing http://respirehaiti.org/ because our fellow co-worker moved there and is serving there. We have 3 weeks to 'grow it' and then 'give it' on April 13th."
These sweatshirts are made from an eco-fleece that is a blend of organic and recycled materials and dyed with low-impact yarn dyes, so not only will you be helping others, but you'll be doing it with a garment that is safe for the planet. Available in heathered royal blue, red, or black.
Each one costs $40 and 50% of the proceeds will go to this Otter group who will then pass it on to Respire Haiti. If they raise the most, OtterCares will then donate another $3000 to their chosen charity. Preorder deadline is April 11th to give these otters enough time to get the funds for donation to Respire Haiti. All sweatshirts will be shipped out within a week of order deadline. Order here.
