Long Island New York (PRWEB) November 15, 2012
MMA Industries, Inc. is North America’s leading distributor of the Fairtex Muay Thai Equipment brand and a Long Island-based ecommerce company that sells all of the major lines of Mixed Martial Arts, Muay Thai Boxing, and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Equipment & Apparel. Through a partnership, MMA Industries has pledged to donate 5% of all website-related sales through November 30th to J.A.C.K Charity.
J.A.C.K (Join A Cause For Kids) at its’ core, is a Long Island-based charity dedicated to raising money for children and families experiencing financial hardship as a result of serious illness or personal tragedy. J.A.C.K. Charity has set up a fund specifically to help those families on Long Island who have lost their homes and are experiencing financial difficulties due to the damage caused by Hurricane Sandy. MMA Industries chose J.A.C.K as their partner because of their direct connection to the Long Island community and their commitment to making sure 100% of the funds are distributed directly to the affected families. There are many families on Long Island who have been displaced from their homes or are continuing to live in their home without heat or electric. Kids that have been a part of one school district their entire life have now been uprooted and may be living in communities outside of their school district where bus service is not available. Many families had no flood insurance due to high premiums or because they believed to be living in a flood free zone. They are now faced with limited or in many cases, no funds to rebuild their homes. These families are left scrambling to rebuild while also trying to maintain or get back to a normal schedule for themselves and their children. We want to help these families and ease the already tremendous burden placed on them as a result of this disaster and this can be done with the help of the combat sports community.
Fans and athletes from all over the world that participate in and watch MMA, Muay Thai, Brazilian Jiu JItsu, and Boxing now have an opportunity to directly help the countless families who are in dire need of our support during this trying time. MMA Industries carries, quite possibly, the most complete line of Muay Thai Equipment anywhere in the western hemisphere. Products from brands like Fairtex, Windy, Boonsport, Raja Boxing, and Twins Special populate their store and are typically favorites among the MMA & Muay Thai community. They also have a complete line of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Gear available from brands such as Vulkan, Keiko Raca and Nogi Industries.
Aside from donating through the purchase of products on their website, MMA Industries has also set up a place on their website, which can be seen by clicking on the Hurricane Sandy Relief Homepage Banner, where people can also donate directly to the cause in amounts of $5, $10, $15 or $20. Simply add the desired amount to your cart and checkout to be a part of the relief effort.
