INK Gives Back 10 Cents on Every Custom T-Shirt Sold
Ink to the People announced today that is has created a new initiative to donate 10¢ for every custom t-shirt sold each month to a selected charity. Ink to the People has named this initiative ‘INK - Giving Back’. Ink to the People has chosen this model as it focuses on its mission to help individuals fundraise and sees its importance as a role model in this space. The first non-profit to be featured will be the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Ink to the People will announce each month a new charity that will be supported through the INK - Giving Back program.
‘We feel it is our duty to help those less fortunate than ourselves and embed this philosophy on Ink to the People’s online custom t-shirt apparel platform on an everyday basis,” says Todd Richheimer, co-founder of Ink to the People.
Custom t-shirt fundraising for charity has proven to be very successful as Ink to the People witnessed earlier this year with the Boston Strong t-shirts designed by Emerson College Students on Ink to the People's easy to use online t-shirt and apparel platform. Nick Reynolds, Chris Dobens and Lane Brenner were able to easily create their custom t-shirt for sale on the Ink to the People online platform without any risk and sell these custom t-shirts to raise money for The One Fund Boston. Their momentum quickly grew with over 34,000 shirts sold and raising over $500,000 in the first 7 days. Their success was driven by a consistent social media campaign to build awareness, natural online viral sharing, as well as the authenticity of their campaign.
Ink to the People is proud to have build a state of the art online custom t-shirt and apparel platform to host fundraising campaigns. The fundraising platform is great for organizations and individuals looking for an opportunity to sell custom designed t-shirts without risking any money upfront and having the ability to control their profit and sale price.
Ink to the People recently used its one of a kind online crowdfunding apparel platform to sell over 59,000 custom ‘Boston Strong’ t-shirts and help raise $900,000 for The One Fund Boston. Crowdfunding is all the rage these days as thousands of companies, charities and organizations are attempting to raise money through the use of traditional sites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo for their latest venture, product, or creative project. Ink to the People’s apparel technology platform makes it much easier for charities, organizations and events to raise significant revenue easier and faster.
