Yes, this is going to be an article about charity, and therefore there will be very little complaining about the Oilers here. Just so you know.
As you guys know we have a clothing line called NationGear. What you may not know is that we donate a portion of all proceeds to charity. Which charity? Today, I’m very happy to announce a new partnership between the Nation Network and Earth Group.
What is Earth Group? Earth Group is an organization aimed at conquering hunger. Their mandate is to give 100% of their net profits to the World Food Program (WFP). What is WFP? They are the world’s largest humanitarian agency fighting hunger worldwide. Ultimately, the goal of Earth Group is to help provide 250,000 meals to school children annually – we wanted to do our part to help.
Going forward, we will be donating 10% of all NationGear proceeds to Earth Group. Each month, we’ll tally the sales and cut a cheque. All orders will also include an information card from Earth Group as a thank you, and to offer a bit more information on what they do.
If you’d like more information, check out www.earthgroup.org and check things out for yourself. As for NationGear, everything will remain the same. You will soon be seeing the Earth Group logo pop up, but nothing else changes.
