WHAT IS #HEREFORGOODCT?
#HereForGoodCT is a movement to encourage CT residents to throw their support behind the small businesses that make this State so special. The Here For Good movement was started by a printshop in St. Louis last month, and has become a nationwide campaign for local printshop’s to help out fellow small businesses within their communities.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
We’re featuring a t-shirt design for any small business affected by COVID-19 that wants to participate. $10 from every sale goes directly to an affected business. The other $10 covers the garment cost, print cost, and fulfillment, and helps us keep our lights on too. With every purchase, two businesses are being supported. Essentially, a business sends us their design or logo, and we add it to the online store. A customer goes to the site, chooses which company they want to support, and purchases that t-shirt for $20.00. $10.00 from that shirt goes directly to the business.
HOW DO I RECEIVE MY FUNDS RAISED?
As of now, the online store campaign will remain live until May 3rd, though this may get extended depending on goals we set for fundraising, and how quickly we can achieve them and set a new goal. This is a pre-order, as there is no merch on hand, but we will be printing and shipping orders to customers as quickly as we can, so we do not become backlogged when the site ends. For payments to individual businesses, please send us a valid mail-to address that you would like your proceed checks to be mailed to. We are going to try and send out weekly checks to every business, depending on weekly volume, I.e. if one business has sold 50 t-shirts in a week, we will send out their funds raised check at the end of that week, if one business has sold 3 t-shirts in a week, we will wait until the following week to combine those two weeks to save on postage cost and check costs.
WHAT DO I NEED TO DO?
There are no costs to any business participating, and all we ask is that you help share the posts on social media, send out email’s promoting your design, etc. The more visibility this movement gets, the more relief we can give to participating businesses.
