Giving Back This Season Has Never Been Easier: Mission Driven Wholesale T-Shirts by The Mountain
Purchase with a Purpose
During the month of November, the idea of giving back always becomes a little more relevant as we all take a step back from the hustle and bustle of everyday life to count our blessings and think about how we can help members of our community—local, national, or global—who are less fortunate than us.
Here at The Mountain, we thought this would be a good time to highlight our t-shirts that give back as part of our mission driven collections. You and your customers can be a part of helping out wonderful causes that do good in the world simply by purchasing wholesale t-shirts from these special collections.
We are excited to announce that in addition to our current partners, we have added a new non-profit partner this year - The Wana Duma Children's Project. This amazing organization is dedicated to helping children in Africa who have been affected and displaced by the AIDS epidemic. A portion of all t-shirt sales from our new collection, Verdayle's Baby Wild, will be donated to the Wana Duma Children's Project so that they can continue to help children in need.
Below is the full list of the mission driven collections we offer, as well as the organizations they support. Keep in mind, the message of giving back can be a powerful sales tool for customers who connect with the idea of helping out an organization whose mission hits close to home.
The Hero Collection and Collegiate Line
The Hero and College Collections support the important mission of Operation Hat Trick (OHT). This organization dedicates their time and resources to spreading awareness and providing support for wounded veterans and active service members. According to OHT's Founder and CEO, Dot Sheehan, the primary focus of the organization is to help fill the coverage gaps that many wounded service members experience in their road to recovery.
The College Collection was the first line we created in our partnership with OHT. Since launching this line, the awareness of the brand increased so much, we expanded the collection into a special segment of our Americana line called The Hero Collection. This special collection of 20 unique designs drives home the monumental sacrifice made by our service men and women in combat who put their lives on the line every day to defend our freedom.
Both of these stand out collections offer t-shirts to our wholesale customers that speak to a targeted segment of customers who tend to be loyal to their affiliations (i.e. their alma mater, favorite college sports team, or military). Do you have customers that are interested in college sports or the military? Encourage them to elevate the impact of their purchase by stocking our t-shirts that support wounded veterans and service men and women.
The Russo Rescue Collection
Maybe you know someone who has rescued a shelter dog, or perhaps you have yourself. There is one thing, well make that two things, that people who have rescued love more than their pet: Apparel that shows off a likeness of their beloved furry family member and contributing to organizations who help more shelters dogs find loving forever homes.
The Russo Rescue Collection from The Mountain combines both of those things in a bold and colorful t-shirt line that also supports Best Friends Animal Society through wholesale and retail t-shirt sales. Although this line is directed toward rescue pets, all animal lovers can appreciate the unique designs and meaningful quotes that summarize the bond between human and animal.
If you have a large customer base whose interests are pets and animals, this collection has the potential to become one of the most popular lines you offer.
The Smithsonian Collection
Founded in 1846, the Smithsonian is the world’s largest museum and research complex consisting of 19 museums and galleries, the National Zoological Park and nine global research centers. Our Smithsonian Collection features stunning designs of air and space images, popular wild animals, and classic military aircraft. Sales from this collection support the educational mission of the Smithsonian Institution.
There truly is something for everyone in this popular wholesale t-shirt line. Adults will love the historical context in many of the designs and kids gravitate to the life-like designs of lions, tigers, and even a cute baby porcupine.
Verdayle's Baby Wild
Verdayle's Baby Wild is a special collection featuring mostly kids t-shirts that supports the Wana Duma Children's Fund. As mentioned above, Wana Duma uses their resources to empower children in Kenya, with a focus on kids who have been affected or displaced by the AIDS epidemic.
This is our most recent addition to our line of Mission Driven Collections and we are excited to continue to explore partnerships that have a positive global impact. Consumers are looking to support companies that are involved in charitable giving. When you align your company with one of our mission driven collections, you not only gain sales, but also loyal customers who connect to your brand in a more meaningful way.
