Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) February 11, 2016
Mori Luggage & Gifts joins Briggs & Riley’s national charity program “A Case for Giving,” taking place in their 29 stores February 11– February 29, 2016, benefiting Ronald McDonald House as part of a nationwide cooperative effort.
“We are proud to work with Ronald McDonald House Charities to make a true difference in the lives of people who are in such need of luggage.” said John Mori, CEO of Mori Luggage & Gifts.
Briggs & Riley’s “A Case for Giving” works in cooperation with more than 250 retail partners to get your gently used rolling bag to someone in immediate need in local communities around the country. “A Case for Giving” salutes more than 100 charity partners of Briggs & Riley’s retailers including Ronald McDonald House, Treehouse for Kids, Make A Wish, Goodwill and local women’s shelters, men’s homes and coalitions for the homeless.
“We are very pleased to re-introduce ‘A Case for Giving’ for its second year, and we expect to be even more successful and to exceed the 2,000 bags collected for the needy last year during our first luggage trade-in program,” said Briggs & Riley CEO Richard Krulik. “The idea was sparked by conversations with foster care leaders who made me realize what a wonderful added purpose our products can have,” Krulik continued. “We’ve put our support behind making sure that those in need can transport their belongings securely, whether it be a child leaving foster care, or a woman getting out of a shelter, or a family who must travel for medical treatment.”
A CASE FOR GIVING – HOW IT WORKS:
- Think about a gently used rolling bag you own. It might have even been sitting for years gathering dust in a closet.
- Bring your used bag into a Mori Luggage & Gifts store between February 11 and February 29, 2016.
- Receive $100 credit on a new Briggs & Riley bag if you donate a used Briggs & Riley bag and a $50 credit on a new Briggs & Riley bag if you donate a used bag from another brand.
- Leave your used bag behind knowing it will be a joy to someone who needs it.
