Mission Driven Collections: The Mountain is Proud to Make a Difference
Long before it was the “in” thing to do, the founders of The Mountain® have been taking the kinds of steps that matter. Our company has a long history of giving back and acting locally to build a stronger community.
We are honored to be active supporters of Operation Hat Trick, Best Friends Animal Society, The Smithsonian Institution, and our newest partner, Wana Duma Children's Project. We could not do this without our loyal customers who are also committed to making a purchase with a purpose!
Collegiate & Hero Collections & Operation Hat Trick®
Operation Hat Trick is a non-proﬁt organization that generates awareness and support for the recovery of wounded service members and Veterans through the sale of OHT branded merchandise like 47 Brand, The Mountain®, Fanatics & more. Operation Hat Trick distributes donations to organizations that support OHT's mission.
The Mountain® is honored to partner with the University of New Hampshire founded organization to sell Hero Collection and Collegiate apparel. It is through this partnership with OHT and participating collegiate institutions, that we are able to donate a portion of each OHT sale to support the organization's mission and thank our servicemen. They promise to defend, we promise to support.
Russo Rescue® & Best Friends Animal Society®
Best Friends Animal Society is the only national animal welfare organization focused exclusively on ending the killing of dogs and cats in America’s shelters.
Best Friends believes in taking a positive and collaborative approach to saving lives and The Mountain® is proud to be a contributor to these efforts. With every Russo Rescue collection t-shirt sold, a portion of the proceeds will go to Best Friends Animal Society to support the mission to save lives. With their vast knowledge, technical expertise and on-the-ground network of partners, we will end the killing and Save Them All.
Verdayle's Baby Wild & The Wana Duma Children's Project
Believing that an education holds the key to a healthy adulthood; the Wana Duma Children’s Project is dedicated to removing barriers that children in Kenya and elsewhere in the world encounter which impede their access to education. An educated child who has developed good life-skills is more likely to become a leader, a steward of the environment and help lay the foundation for a stronger community. Our newest mission driven collection, Verdayle's Baby Wild, supports Wana Duma's goal of providing access to education for all children.
Recently, The Wana Duma project has added mothers who are HIV+ and their children to the Project, realizing that by keeping these mothers healthy, they can live to raise their children, and there will be fewer orphans. This exciting addition to their outreach has changed and saved lives.
The Smithsonian apparel is skillfully crafted in the USA by the expert artists at The Mountain® and inspired by Smithsonian’s iconic collections. A portion of the proceeds generated from this licensed product support Smithsonian’s stated educational mission for “the increase and diffusion of knowledge.”
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. In 2013 Smithsonian received about 30 million visitors to Smithsonian, with 188 million visits to Smithsonian websites. The total number of objects, works of art and specimens at the Smithsonian is estimated at 137 million.
