ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., Dec 3, 2019 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Just a few weeks before their first birthday, Morrison Outdoors is joining the Pledge 1% movement and donating 1% of all revenue from 2019 to Operation Warm, a registered non-profit providing new winter coats for children who need them.
“We’re happy to be joining Pledge 1% and donating to Operation Warm during their #GivingTuesday campaign,” says Morrison Outdoors Founder Tavis Malcolm.
“With this donation, we’re giving back a piece of every dollar we’ve ever received, going back to the Kickstarter campaign that launched us,” he says. “We’ve had fortunate early growth as a company and it’s important to me that helping our community is something that’s built into our business plans from the beginning.”
By joining Pledge 1%, Morrison Outdoors is committed to donating 1% of profit, product, or employee time (or combination of those) to charitable giving every year. In the future, they plan to adopt this strategy formally into their company bylaws and apply for B Corp certification.
For now, though, they are focused on giving to Operation Warm at the onset of the winter season.
“Operation Warm is a natural partner for us,” explains Malcolm. “Camping is a luxury that we’re fortunate to have, and we want everyone to have the same warmth on a daily basis that we try to create with our sleeping bags. This donation will provide brand new coats for roughly two full classrooms of children.”
Operation Warm is a national nonprofit that creates brand new, high-quality coats for children in need. Every child, regardless of their economic situation, deserves a brand new coat. Operation Warm partners with compassionate individuals and organizations across North America to give a gift of warmth, confidence and hope to millions of children in need. Operation Warm believes a brand new coat is more than a coat, promoting self-esteem, school attendance and outdoor play.
