Promotions with a Purpose: Hanes4Education

How would you like to see your promotional spend go towards a good cause?

It’s no surprise that consumers would rather purchase from a brand who gives back to the community! In fact, 60% of consumers specifically look for brands with a sense of purpose (Entrepreneur). As social corporate responsibility is gaining popularity, how can your company stand out?

The Hanes4Education program offers a solution by allowing you to give a $0.10 rebate from each piece of clothing you order to a K-12 (public or private) school of your choice! This rebate is available on any of Hanes’ 4 brands: Hanes, Alternative, Comfort Wash, and Champion.

The best part is that you, the buyer, get to decide which school receives your rebate! This small customization creates a more personalized connection between the consumer and the donation.

Hanes4Education started small in 2011, but only three years later, it expanded to include any printed Hanes shirt. Since 2011, the program has only gotten larger with the addition of Champion, Comfortwash, and Alternative. This positive growth has allowed for over $1 Million to be donated to schools across the country!

How it works!

1: Choose one of their four brands to purchase printed T-shirts, polo shirts, shorts, sweatshirts, and sweatpants.

2: Submit the rebate form found on their website along with a copy of your invoice within a year of your order.

3: In 4-6 weeks, a school of your choice will receive a check!

Each school can earn a maximum of $500 (5,000 shirts) per order, and a total of $5,000 per calendar year. This program is especially great for events, team uniforms, corporate apparel, employee outings and giveaways!
