Would you send your child to school without pencils, scissors, crayons, paper, or any of the necessary supplies he or she needs in order to learn? Would you go to work without a pen, paper, phone or computer? Of course not. Your child would be at a tremendous disadvantage in the classroom, and you would struggle to get your job done.
That's why one of our favorite clients, Business-Supply.com recently partnered with Kids in Need Foundation to donate hundreds of thousands of school supplies to children nationwide.
From time to time, we like to highlight the good and important work that our clients are doing in the community, and this week we're excited to tell you about Business-Supply. The company was founded in 1999 to make office supplies, office chairs, breakroom supplies and more available at low prices to home consumers, home-offices, and small and medium sized businesses.
As part of their mission to help make a difference in our community, they've joined forces with the Kids in Need Foundation (KINF), a non-profit organization that helps provide basic school supplies to children in need throughout the U.S. For every order placed at Business-Supply.com, they donate a needed item to a child through the KINF team. Their 2013 goal is to donate 450,000 school supply items that will help support nearly 32,000 students. It could be a dozen pencils, or 24 crayons, or a composition notebook. Whatever the foundation requests for a particular month, they'll provide.
So, next time you need supplies for your home or office (you can pretend like you won't, but admit it, your time will come), check out Business-Supply.com to get your shopping done....and more importantly, help a child in need.
