When we heard the call that homeless shelters across our city needed help, we listened.
Together, along with other Calgary small business owners, we collected over 2,000 towels and donated them to six different local charities that were in dire need. It was incredible to see people rally together for a great cause.
While this initiative was fantastic, we felt that we needed a better, more sustainable way to help the shelters that do so much for our community. We saw success with our Giving Toque, buy one and we’ll donate one, so we thought we could take the same giving model and apply it to towels.
After a little research, we found that there weren’t any companies that produce towels that are actually manufactured in Canada, let alone towels that build community, so we decided to change that. We teamed up witha Canadian manufacturer to create a high-quality terry towel that adheres to our five pillars of the community, particularly giving back, supporting Canadian manufacturing and, representing where you come from.
So now, with further ado, we’re excitedfinally introduce to you the CAN Giving Towel, alightweight, compact microfiber towel that’s proudly made in Canada.Buy one we’ll donate one towel to a shelter across Canada!
