Just like all of you, we’ve been desperate to help in some way throughout this pandemic. We’ve watched healthcare workers on the news and on social media and cried as they miss time with their children and selflessly give of their time. We wanted to find some way to cheer them on. Some way to say THANK YOU.
And then a few weeks ago, we posted an instagram of a nurse in California that we sent some goodies to. We asked y’all to tag someone you know (or yourself) in the healthcare industry so that we could send them a free Quarantine Kit (aka box o’ happy). The number of comments was overwhelming and wonderful and heartbreaking all at the same time. We wanted to send ALL of them a box o’ happy. And that’s when it hit us, we could follow in the footsteps of TOMS shoes and launch a buy 1, donate 1 program.
For every JG tee or JG cap you buy online, we will donate one to a healthcare worker. It took us a few weeks to get all the tech-y stuff worked out on the back end of our site, but we’re good to go now! Whenever you add a JG tee or cap to your cart, the “donate 1” icon will automatically add as well!
Our plan is to ship several boxes of goods to healthcare facilities rather than ship to individual healthcare workers (unfortunately we don’t have the means to ship to individuals) … feel free to make suggestions or nominate specific healthcare facilities in the comments below!
Like we said in the video, we know this isn’t saving lives or even changing lives. Our purpose is that at the very least, it will bring a little bit of happy to those that are saving lives because we could truly never, ever thank them enough.
