June 30 2020– Luxury US fashion label Michael Kors has announced it is making a 35-million-dollar product donation to Delivering Good, a New York-based non-profit organization helping those affected by poverty and disasters worldwide.
The products will be distributed to Delivering Good’s network of local agencies across the US serving hard-hit areas including New York City, Pennsylvania, Nevada, Los Angeles, Texas and Orlando.
“I’ve always believed that long-lasting change needs to happen at both the local and national level,” Michael Kors, chief creative officer of his namesake brand, said in a statement. “With Delivering Good, we’re able to donate our product and know that it will be provided to the local communities and organizations throughout the country that need it most. If we have learned anything during these trying times, it’s that when you are able to help, you should.”
Lisa Gurwitch, president and CEO of Delivering Good added: “The donation of Michael Kors product will provide hope, dignity and self-esteem to families and individuals facing the financial challenges that come in a crisis. Our community partners will be distributing the merchandise to people in need as they also provide services for more stable living environments.”
From time and again, many biggies in the fashion industry have shown it to the world that fashion is not only about profits and losses. This sector has always stood with those in need. The market giants have never shied away from coming forth and doing their bit for society. In fact, many times, several fashion companies have also contributed time and expertise to causes, such as local cultural centers. Once there was a time when companies were thought to be solely profit-driven, but with the rising awareness among people and employee pressure in the age of corporate social responsibility has led to the development of corporate social responsibility. Recently, the famous US label, Michael Kors, joined the league and announced that it would donate a handsome amount of money to an NGO, helping those affected by poverty and disasters worldwide. We at iDesigniBuy commend the steps taken by the fashion labels and stand firmly behind them.
