Giving Back to Communities Around the World
In addition to our commitment to small businesses globally, we are also dedicated to helping our local communities. During COVID, we donated over 80,000 face masks to charities and organizations that need them most.
Since 2012, we have partnered with Spring Global Delivery Solutions to deliver and donate almost 900 pallets of product samples to various global charities—this amounts to over 4.5 million pens and other products that have gone to those who are in need.
In the US, we also contribute writing instruments to multiple organizations which prepare children to learn and succeed with free school supplies. This includes the Kids in Need Foundation, where our donations are delivered – free of charge –to teachers and students in underserved schools across the country. Each year we’re able to supply thousands of students with the writing instruments they need to participate and succeed in the classroom. With Kids in Need Foundation’s National Network of Resource Centers and direct relationships with under-resourced schools, our donated products go directly students and teachers nationwide.
We partner with local organizations and charities to donate products, food, clothing, pet supplies, and other must-haves.
In our headquarter city of San Diego, California, we have donated thousands of personalized pens to front-line workers at local hospitals, schools and the San Diego Fire Department.
In Dundalk, Ireland, team members vote annually for which charity they’d like to donate to—over the last four years, they have raised over €15,000 for local charities including Dundalk Dog Rescue, Birches Alzheimer’s Day Centre, Louth Hospital, and Rape Crisis North East.
From social to environmental initiatives,
nothing is more important to us
than taking care of the communities we work in and serve.
