To that end, Echo Design launched today it’s “Share the Warmth” campaign—a promotion that benefits Fashion Delivers, a national non-profit organization dedicated to providing apparel and other products donated by manufacturers and retailers to community charities across the country.
Through Dec. 1, Echo invites consumers to purchase cold weather items, such as gloves, hats or mufflers from www.echodesign.com and for each unit sold, Echo will donate two comparable items to those in need through Fashion Delivers. All the items donated will go to those in the Northeast still facing the aftermath of the devastation of Hurricane Sandy, one year later.
“Giving back has always been part of our 90-year heritage and this holiday season, we are proud to partner with Fashion Delivers. There is a need to continue to support communities affected by Hurricane Sandy and we hope to provide warmth in the cold months ahead by donating winter scarves, hats and gloves to those in need,” says Lynn Roberts, vice president of communications, Echo Design.
Adds Fashion Delivers Chairman Allan Ellinger: “This program is a great way for consumers to help people in need while also getting beautiful products. We’re counting on the generosity of companies like Echo Design, as well as their customers, to help keep people warm this winter.”
