HHP had a blast with iO Chicago comedians modeling HHP’s fair trade practice jewelry and accessories! You can find these gorgeous pieces in our 2017 holiday catalog. iO founder Charna Halpern and improv stars Susan Messing, Stacey Smith, Shantira Jackson and Nnamdi Ngwe who all modeled for the shoot.
At HHP, we apply the improv mentality of “YES, AND…” as we encourage consumers to say YES to bringing our fair trade practice goods to the forefront AND to making a difference.
We need to protect and support our most vulnerable people and communities. HHP is able to do that through our products that provide a pathway out of poverty, and we love supporting organizations that share our mission.
So for this month’s act of service we’ll be wearing our red noses and making a donation in support of Red Nose Day, a charity that has raised over $1 billion in 25 years to support projects that ensure kids are safe, healthy, educated, and empowered.
The goal of our #LIFTCOMMUNITIES campaign is to create a social movement where everyone gives, volunteers or supports instinctively at least once a month. Join us this month by wearing a red nose on May 25th and supporting this amazing charity!
Corporate Social Responsibility—you’ve heard this term a lot lately. Businesses promote themselves as being socially responsible because it’s a good for society. But, it’s also good for business. Consumers are not only buying products that are socially responsible, they are choosing to do business with companies that are socially responsible. Studies show that corporate social responsibility:
- Builds brand loyalty
- Increases sales and profits
- Attracts investors
- Attracts and motivates talent
- Improves employee retention
- Gives you and your customer a competitive edge
So, selling and using products that promote corporate social responsibility is—simply put—smart. One way you can be socially responsible is to promote, purchase, and use products made by social enterprises and fair trade organizations that manufacture goods for the sole purpose of funding their social programming. Helping Hand Partners partners with a variety of social enterprises and fair trade organizations that manufacture a wide array of unique, high-quality products including jewelry, bath products, housewares, and food. Here are just a few ways to use our socially responsible products and make a difference at the same time:
- Promotional Products
- Customer and employee loyalty programs
- Rewards & recognition
- Sales meetings
- Incentive travel
- Room gifts and Welcome Bags
- Weddings & Special events
- Donor “Thank You” gifts
- Corporate Inventory
It takes so little to make a big impression and an even bigger difference. Build your brand with corporate social responsibility.
