InkHead Gives Back to the Community
The promotional product company has made donations to multiple charities and non-profit organizations over the course of 2012.
InkHead Promotional Products, one of the fastest-growing online distributors of promotional products, has made both financial donations and in-kind product donations to various charities and non-profit organizations this year. These contributions reflect the company’s unwavering commitment to giving back to the community whenever possible.
InkHead’s largest donation this year went to the Atlanta Silverbacks in the form of credit toward purchase of branded products, continuing a long-standing partnership between the soccer club and the promotional products company. InkHead also provided a financial donation to Friends of TYSA, the non-profit arm of Triumph Youth Soccer Association in August. The promotional product company’s donation will be used to provide equipment and cover traveling expenses for deserving players. “Soccer is part of the company culture here at InkHead,” said COO Jason Miller. “We always leap at the chance to promote the sport in the community.”
InkHead also made generous donations to multiple health-related organizations this year. The company made its second-largest donation of the year to the Georgia chapter of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is the world’s largest nonprofit health organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research and providing education and patient services. InkHead’s own Vice President of Sales and Marketing Jim Franklyn is the Chair of the Mentor Committee for LLS. In April, the South Carolina chapter of the American Diabetes Association tapped InkHead to sponsor their annual Tour de Cure event. Tour de Cure, a series of cycling events around the country, invite cyclists in the community to ride and raise money for diabetes research. The company donated koozies and sunglasses that event organizers gave away to participants and attendees.
Recently the promotional items company made a sizable in-kind product donation to Atlanta Mission. Established in 1938, Atlanta Mission provides emergency shelter, residential discipleship, job attainment, and transitional housing to more than 950 homeless men, women and children daily. InkHead’s product donation will be sold through the Mission’s thrift stores, which supplement the organization’s fundraising. InkHead also donated products to the Piedmont Rape Crisis Center Winder, which aims to end sexual assault through empowering adult sexual assault victims into survivors through advocacy, support, community awareness, and education.
In addition, the company sponsored the Indian Film Festival and Slamdance Film Festival this year. The Indian Film Festival of Los Angeles (IFFLA) is nonprofit organization devoted to a greater appreciation of Indian cinema and culture by showcasing films, supporting emerging filmmakers, recognizing the leadership of entertainment industry performers and business executives, and promoting the diverse perspectives of the Indian diaspora. Slamdance is a year-round organization fostering the development of unique and innovative filmmakers.
InkHead has also made product donations to various groups in the United States military, most notably to the Military Training Instructor Benevolent Fund (MTIBF) for the United States Air Force. The mission of the MTIBF is rather simple: to address the needs of current and former Military Training Instructors. Lastly, the promotional company proudly provides the National Guard with a complimentary online store to facilitate all their branded product ordering.
InkHead welcomes sponsorship and donation inquiries from approved 501 (c)(3) charities and non-profit organizations.
