We have a dream to give back and make a difference. Putting other first is a virtue we all wish for our kids and our families. When we decided to build an apparel line that gave back, it gave birth to the UB4Me name. Each time you buy a shirt from UB4Me Apparel, a contribution of at least 15% of our profits is made to a specific worthy cause. By creating apparel that everyone loves to wear, we give everyone that same chance to give back.
Our shirts can accomplish so much with your help. We are raising awareness and helping to find a cure for cancer and cystic fibrosis. We are feeding the homeless and supporting disaster victims. We are even feeding rescued horses! We make smiles bigger through cleft surgery and our foster children support. As we expand our line, we can all do more good. Help us spread the word that we all need to give back more. Find ways you can make an impact by putting others first. Teach a child about giving. Help someone in need. Together we WILL change the world!
Roswell, GA – The recent economy has affected Americans in ways they never imagined. Job losses and insecurity have everyone cutting back. They aren’t as likely to purchase the things only a few years ago they surely would have. Charitable organizations are feeling it too. Severe reductions in donations have put some causes in survival mode. One Atlanta apparel company has come up with an inventive way to look good and give back.
UB4Me Apparel creates stylish women’s fashions that give back. By partnering each one of the original designs to a specific charity, this innovative apparel company gives shoppers an opportunity to buy stylish fashions and feel good about the purchase. Shoppers can choose by picking a stylish design of their liking or selecting which charity they wish to support. Either way, the purchase ends up accomplishing two goals: fashion and philanthropy
Founded by Jennifer Manisco, UB4Me Apparel presents an opportunity to express an artistic side through the fashions she creates and blend it with a desire to help others. “It’s amazing the impact we can have from such a simple idea,” says Manisco. “To know that we can make a difference doing something we enjoy doing so much, is very rewarding.” With a simple goal of designing stylish fashions and finding willing charities to work with, UB4Me Apparel has created a win/win partnership with awesome potential.
UB4Me Apparel has also partnered up with local fundraising events. Recently UB4Me has partnered up with Shamrockin’ for a Cure (www.shamrockinforacure.com), an annual event that raises money to help find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis. The result is a stylish, original shirt designed for the specific event and a joint marketing effort that gets the word out about the event. “We help promote their event through our own marketing efforts, and Shamrockin’ for a Cure sends people to our website to buy their shirt,” say Manisco, “it gives our partners another opportunity to raise money for their cause and we get an opportunity to work with great people who also want to give back.”
Between the TV appearances, forming new partnerships and designing the next original styles, UB4Me has been busy. “The response we have gotten has been amazing,” says Manisco, “our website has been busy, we have new retail boutiques picking up our lines and the partnerships opportunities are unlimited. We’re excited!” UB4Me Apparel appeared on CBS Better Mornings Atlanta three times since beginning and been in numerous local Atlanta magazines. The styles are available online at www.shirtsthatgive.com, at some local women’s boutiques including Raw Denim in Buckhead, Carta Bella in Roswell, Broadwell Cottage in Milton and at in-home trunks shows from Red Handed Style.
