It is a small way for our company to help New York City during these tough times -- and for me to indirectly give back to the industry that provided me with so much opportunity during my banking career
New York, NY (PRWEB) January 8, 2009
RVR Neckwear , a men's luxury neckwear company, inked a co-venture agreement with Robin Hood, one of the most successful organizations fighting and preventing poverty in New York City. As part of the one-year agreement, RVR will donate 10 percent of all online sales to Robin Hood.
During this incredibly challenging economic environment, individuals buying RVR ties online will be, at the same time, joining the battle against poverty in New York City. One hundred percent of all donations to Robin Hood go directly to programs helping impoverished New Yorkers build better lives for themselves and their families.
As a Wall Street banker for over 20 years, RVR Neckwear founder, Robert Valdes-Rodriguez identified with Robin Hood's dedication to fighting New York City poverty by applying investment principles to charitable giving. "It is a small way for our company to help New York City during these tough times -- and for me to indirectly give back to the industry that provided me with so much opportunity during my banking career," said Valdes-Rodriguez.
