April Specials: Spotlight on Giving Back

4 Apr

 

April is not only a time for spring showers, it also happens to be National Autism Awareness Month and National Volunteer Month. Giving back to the community around us is an integral part to who we are here at Action Plus Ideas. This month we’re featuring some great items that fit into a month of giving back.

Promotional products are a great way to raise both awareness and funding for important causes. Big companies like Rite Aid  are embracing this approach. Recently, Rite Aid announced it’s endeavor to sell branded balloons for $1.00 to raise proceeds for local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

Using products as a means for fundraising not only benefits the non-profits and charities, but it also ties your company to a great cause. Promotional items are also great for handing out to volunteers and participators of fundraising and awareness events. T-Shirts with sponsor information on the back, water bottles, tote bags, and pens all make great  giveaway items. Promotional items help create a sense of unity with an organization and whomever they’re being handed out to.

We’re running some monthly specials geared towards these special events.
