A Helping Hand to Those Who Need It
Making the world a better place, one Helping Hand at a time.
Everyone wants to be a force for good. The problem is finding the right way to do it. Do you donate to a charity? If so, which one? Maybe you should volunteer somewhere? But it can be so difficult to find the time, let alone the energy, after you’ve honored all your other commitments. But what can you do?
Stop stressing. Staples lets you make a difference while promoting your brand at the same time. By partnering with socially responsible organizations like Helping Hand Partners (HHP), you can generate brand exposure and effect change in the lives of the needy at the same time.
Here’s a look at a few of the great organizations Staples and HHP give you access to, and how they can help promote your brand:
Faire Collection – A fresh interpretation of artisanal craftsmanship, Faire Collection jewelry is designed in New York City, and then manufactured in Ecuador and Vietnam. Intended to reflect the craftsperson’s cultural heritage, these pieces help elevate the lives of the people who make them by providing dignified wages and holistic social programs that provide a path out of poverty.
Greyston Bakery – A force for personal transformation and community economic renewal, Greyston Bakery uses hard-to-employ people to manufacture its baked goods. Profits go to housing, job training and education for people in its Southwest Yonkers community.
Ūsful Glassworks – A Boise, Idaho-based nonprofit, Ūsful Glassworks helps people with employment barriers find jobs. With the mission of helping people feel useful again, their environmentally friendly products are made from recycled glass. Their job-training participants include offenders, refugees, the homeless, at-risk youth and low-income seniors.
WORK+SHELTER – An ethical outsourcing solution, WORK+SHELTER provides a safe space where women in India can receive training and earn a fair wage. They provide high-quality fair trade products that combine the power of community, positivity and inspiration to create a strong workplace.
Together, we work with these organizations and others to find high-quality products that can be customized with your brand or message. Explore how good it can feel to do good in the world while promoting your brand at the same time.
