RushOrderTees, LiveLifeNice Face Cover Partnership Donates $25K for COVID-19 Charities
May 7, 2020
Back in April, we unveiled our plan to team up with apparel brand LiveLifeNice to assist our local and national communities during the COVID-19 pandemic. This partnership enabled us to offer low-cost fabric face covers to the public, with a majority portion of the proceeds going to charities aiding in pandemic relief, as identified by The Philly Pledge.
(These face covers are still available. CLICK HERE to shop face covers.)
Over 100,000 CDC-compliant face covers have been sold in just the past three weeks. This donation is the product of those sales.
“We’re nowhere near finished yet,” said founder Michael Nemeroff. “The need for face covers hasn’t yet subsided, nor has the need for aid in other forms, like food, personal protection equipment, and economic relief. We will keep selling the covers and making donations for as long as we need to.”
“We’re in this to make a difference,” he added.
This effort wouldn’t have been possible without crucial contributions from LiveLifeNice, an apparel and media company that prides itself on inspiring others to do good. For founder Christian Crosby, this is a small token of appreciation for the city he calls home.
“My heart is full today,” Crosby said. “To be able to make an impact like this is as much a privilege as it is a responsibility. And to know we’re not done helping yet in these trying times tells me we’ve put our energy in the right direction.”
The money is to be split evenly between two charities based in the Philadelphia area. One is Philabundance, an organization that distributes over 24 million pounds of food every year to those who need it most. The other is the PHL COVID-19 Fund. It is an organization that fast tracks money and resources to charities in the Greater Philadelphia region. Together, these organizations will sustain the lives of countless people during the pandemic and beyond.
It’s important to remember that this wasn’t all thanks to our own doing. It’s also thanks to everyone who has bought a mask. Not only are you doing your part to slow the spread of COVID-19 and “flatten the curve,” you’ve spent your money in a way that does the most good for the most people possible.
