CLEVELAND, OH--(Marketwired - August 26, 2016) - Things Remembered is showcasing the power of a gift with its new campaign, Gift To Louisiana, by donating money, and blankets, re-usable bottles, clothing and other items from its stores and website, as well as matching donations to help the people and communities impacted by the recent flooding in Louisiana.
"We are a gift company, so we understand how important a gift can be to let people know you care, that you support them. It's a way of giving hope. We wanted to encourage our employees and our customers to give something, so we're donating money, supplies and matching donations in our office, stores and through our website," said Lisa Gavales, CEO and President of Things Remembered.
Things Remembered is collecting donations in increments of $1, $5, $10 or $20 at ThingsRemembered.com and in TR stores, so customers can make donations while they shop or when they check out. 100% of contributions will be donated to the NOLA Pay It Forward Fund, which was set up by the Mayor or New Orleans in partnership with the Greater New Orleans Foundation to provide relief and rebuilding efforts to the people, families and communities affected by the recent floods in Louisiana. Things Remembered will be matching donations up to $5,000 total.
"Giving is a very simple and pure act of kindness and thoughtfulness, and that's why we encourage our employees and customers to give donations to help others," said Christopher Warnack, VP of Marketing at Things Remembered.
