You'll Get A Compliment Every Time You Wear One!

It is an exciting opportunity during this challenging time in New York City to join forces with such a passionate organization as Hearts of Gold. Robert Valdes-Rodriguez

RVR Necwkear (http://www.rvrneckwear.com/), a men's luxury neckwear company, today announces an agreement with Hearts of Gold (http://www.heartsofgold.org/), a not-for-profit organization that fosters sustainable change in lifestyle and levels of self-sufficiency for homeless mothers and their children in New York City. RVR Neckwear will donate a percentage of its online sales of RVR ties to support the organization.

As the nation begins to recover from a challenging economic environment, individuals buying RVR ties online will be joining the fight to help New York City's mothers and their children build better lives for themselves and their families. One hundred percent of all donations to Hearts of Gold go directly to those in need, helping them get through the day and beyond.

RVR founder, Robert Valdes-Rodriguez launched the company as a way to replace an old "lucky" tie he wore as a Wall Street executive. His fruitless search led him to design his own tie, which quickly turned into a passion, ultimately resulting in a collection simply named RVR. Today, that new "lucky" tie has evolved into more than 30 styles in hundreds of different color combinations. RVR ties have gained a loyal following of celebrities and high-profile executives alike. John Hamm, star of the popular television show, Mad Men, wore an RVR Sterling Silver tie on the red carpet at the 2010 Oscars. "We are humbled by the overwhelming support from the most discriminating men and women buying our ties, all while helping homeless mothers at the same time," said Valdes-Rodriguez.

Hearts of Gold founder and Executive Director Deborah Koenigsberger believes that helping mothers develop the confidence to help themselves is paramount to their future independence and success. "We aim to ease the transition and strengthen their resolve in this critical time so they can go on to lead rewarding and happy lives," said Koenigsberger.
