Founders of Freedombands Inc. have decided to make themselves a non-profit company to lower costs and raise more money with their Freedombands href=”http://monkeybands.com/personalized-wristbands/”>Personalized Wristbands.
They already raised more than $30,000 for the Armed Forces Relief Trust (AFRT). They hope to continue helping soldiers and their families. Here’s more:
“The inception of this new nonprofit organization will bring increased effectiveness to the efforts of the founders of Freedombands by similarly donating all after-cost revenue from its colorful patriotic wristbands to support the U.S. troops.
“We only hope that this new company’s status as a not-for-profit organization will allow us to lower costs and provide even more support to the AFRT,” said Steve Cloward, president and chief executive officer of Bands For Freedom. “Due to the simply unbelievable response to the cause of the AFRT and the patriotic wristbands, we saw the window of opportunity for the creation of a company that is totally dedicated to this great cause.”
Cloward explained that in the time he has been involved with the AFRT he has realized how necessary its role is for the troops. Aside from donating money earned through the sale of its Bands For Freedom(TM) wristbands, Cloward says he feels an urgent responsibility to educate the public about the great needs of the men and women in uniform.
Last week Cloward presented yet another $10,000 donation to the AFRT to provide emergency funds for U.S. military soldiers and their families. This third check brings the donation total to $30,000. Michael Brown, director of the Navy Marine Corps Relief Society’s office at Marine Corps Recruit Depot San Diego for the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society in California, accepted the check on Dec. 23 during a live newscast on the NBC 7 morning show in San Diego.”
