Clearwater, FL (PRWEB) November 25, 2005
Mr. Merch, a nationally known supplier of customized apparel solutions, has launched a campaign to support wounded veterans who are receiving treatment at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C., many of whom were recently injured in Iraq and Afghanistan. The Founders of Mr. Merch were moved by reports and stories of the bravery and dedication displayed by U.S. soldiers in the field, and took it upon themselves to support our troops.
The campaign begun when Mr. Merch (http://www.mrmerch.com) founders Joe Dominick and Justin Simon printed all of the sports apparel used by the Achilles Track Club, for the New York City Marathon. The Achilles Track Club’s major sponsor is AVIS, a client of Mr. Merch. These garments were worn by wounded soldiers who participated in the marathon using wheel chairs and bikes. Those working for the Achilles Track Club also wore garments provided by Mr. Merch.
Mr. Merch has also committed five percent of the proceeds from sales involving two of their largest customers Johnson & Johnson and Avis to the veterans at Walter Reed. “We felt that it was important to show 100% support for the men and women who put their lives on the line”, stated Dominick. “We provide services to some of the largest companies in America, and we wanted to join in with other large corporations in showing wounded veterans that we care”.
Mr. Merch is a unique company that provides customized apparel solutions for companies like Avis and Johnson & Johnson, who often require large scale production of sports wear for events and to provide company branding. A recent article, published at Press Direct International (http://www.pressdirectinternational.com), titled “Human Billboard Shakes Up Advertising World”, illustrates just how creative Mr. Merch is when offering branding solutions for small, medium, and large companies.
“We have experienced significant growth in the last year as more and more companies hear about us, and we felt it was time to start giving back”, says Dominick. Mr. Merch employees are also excited about what their company is doing to support the troops. “It doesn’t surprise us that Joe and Justin got involved with this effort”, proudly states David Kimmel. “They have been great to work with and have never shied away from giving to others”.
Dominick and Simon are now reaching out to other major corporations to join in with their efforts. “If executives at other companies want to join in they can contact me by going to our web site,” Dominick says. “There is plenty of demand for good citizenship”.
