Detroit, Michigan (PRWEB) February 20, 2014
When Agent Outerwear introduced the concept of buy one, give one to the outerwear apparel industry, they knew they had an interesting and uniquely helpful solution to a real problem here in the United States.
“In regards to something as simple and essential as a warm coat, it’s surprising to some people that there are kids in our cities that are struggling to get to school during the winter because they don’t have one. We’ve heard countless stories from school teachers that attest to the problem in their very own classrooms. There are lots of social enterprises bringing focus to important issues around the world, but we want to make it our goal to help with this very real issue here at home first,” says Lindsay Matoy, Chief Agent of Giving at Agent Outerwear.
For every coat purchased, Agent Outerwear donates a brand new coat to a child in need. They call it, "Get Warm. Give Warm.®" and they have made it their mission to give away as many coats as possible. This inspiring video summarizes their company’s mission: http://youtu.be/D6d2zh8AKe0.
AO reports that for many children whose families don't have the means to supply them with a quality winter coat, being in school may be the warmest part of their day. In many areas of the country, the winters are severe enough to make a walk to school painful, if not impossible without proper winter attire. While coat donation drives help with the issue, the total donations received annually only scratch the surface for helping the amount of children in need and it’s Agent Outerwear’s goal to create a sustainable solution to this problem.
"We are excited about the outdoors, especially snow sports, and we love great design. But most importantly, whether it's work or play, we want it to mean something. That is why we've dedicated our business to serving others the best way we know how. Not only do we want to provide our customers with an amazing and functional product, but we want our success to be measured in how many children we can help with our mission," says Matoy.
Agent Outerwear is hoping their campaign will exceed their goal by its end date of March 31, 2014 to help supply the funds needed to purchase additional inventory and to help more children in need of warm coats.
