Serve Big is an initiative developed to lighten the economic hardships due to the effects the corona virus is having on non-profits within our community.
At Swag we have come up with an idea to combat the hardships non-profits are faced with and to pull together as a community and bring aid to the organizations we know and love. We will deliver extra funding to them during this time without any cost to them.
The only commitment is marketing support from the participating non-profit. We are asking each organization to promote their own personal Serve Big link on their web-site and social media.
The link will direct participating non-profit's followers and supporters to a page where they will be able to purchase the Serve Big T-shirt. $12 from the sale of each shirt will go back to that group. After printing, the shirts may be shipped or available for curbside pick-up(curbside only available in Tuscaloosa) within five BUSINESS days of purchase.
We will also offer an option to add to each organization's link a “tip jar” button. 100% of the proceeds from the “tip jar” will go directly to that business--so it can distribute proceeds amongst their tipped employees.
This initiative is an effort for Swag to be able to continue providing creative printing services to the community we serve; to continue providing jobs to our printers and employees, and it also allows us to pass funding onto organizations within the community. Finally, it provides the consumer an awesome shirt to wear as a badge of honor saying—I support our community, its employers and our snon-profits!
To qualify, you must be a 501(c)(3) with documentation. There is a form below where you can upload your 501(c)(3) documentation, the non-profit contact info, the organization in which the check will need to be made payable to and your social media handles and/or website addresses. Funds will be processed each week. The return policy is that there are not any returns. We will exchange product if the shirt is damaged, but since this is an effort to stimulate business and this is a presale--all sales are final.
If you are from another community and are interested in becoming a part of our Serve Big initiative, please use the 'contact us' form on our page.
For a community to qualify, we will need to have 10 committed local non-profits dedicated to promoting and helping with this cause.
These are uncertain times, especially for non-profits, but these organizations also drive our community. Our best efforts to survive and flourish come in banding together to support and lift each other up! I hope you will join with us. Support Small and Serve Big!
