Clifton Park, NY, January 23, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Name Bubbles, makers of award-winning labels and gifts, has fulfilled a pledge made last year to charity partner K.I.D.S. (Kids in Distressed Situations), donating $25,000 to the national organization. The company, which made the announcement as part of their month-long fifth-anniversary celebration, raised the money through sales of its personalized clothing labels. This year-long drive was the focus of Name Bubbles’ 2013 GIVE program, an annual effort to give back to child-oriented charitable organizations. The program is spearheaded by Founder and CEO Michelle Brandriss.
“This is yet another reason we love our customers so much,” stated Brandriss. “Through their purchases of our laundry-safe clothing labels, we were able to donate $1 of every product purchased to K.I.D.S. We feel extremely lucky to have been given the opportunity to donate to such a wonderful organization and make a difference in children’s lives.”
On January 14, a group of Name Bubbles representatives volunteered at New York-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital as part of the K.I.D.S. hospital program network partner, Princess for a Lifetime, and helped create a magical moment for hospitalized children and their families. “We are so honored to have been the recipient of Name Bubbles’ GIVE 2013 program,” says Denise Durham-Williams, president of K.I.D.S. “We thank Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital for hosting this event and enabling K.I.D.S. to give these generous donors a glimpse of how their fund-raising efforts affect families and children on a more meaningful, personal level.”
Name Bubbles has said that they will continue the GIVE Program in 2014 and later this year will be rolling out new opportunities to participate and donate to an organization in need.
