Ireland (PRWEB) March 29, 2012
Blarney.com have seized the unique three week branding opportunity offered by Padraig Harrington to raise funds through the Padraig Harrington Charitable Foundation for Gerard Byrne who was recently paralysed from the waist down in a car accident.
Padraig, a three time Major winner, had the innovative idea of offering branding space on his clothing for three forthcoming US events – the Shell Houston Open, The Masters and the RBC Heritage – to companies willing to donate money to Gerard’s plight. With the full support of his current sponsors in aid of this worthy cause, Blarney.com, along with two other companies, will take a position on his clothing for these three high profile weeks on the golf calendar. Blarney.com have also agreed to contribute 5% of net website sales (excluding clothing related items) to the Foundation during this three week period.
Padraig said, “ I am very grateful to IdentityX, Clune Construction and Blarney.com who have pledged over $200,000 to this worthy cause and I hope I will repay their support with some good results over the next three weeks while wearing their branding. I am also very grateful to my current sponsors for allowing me to do this. I know this assistance will help Gerard and his family who have shown such courage during this difficult time “
