FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BREA, California – TickTalk announces the fourth installment of their TickTalk Gives initiative, a commitment to giving back, to donate brand-new winter coats and shoes to children around the United States who need them most. Starting on January 1st, TickTalk will donate a portion of every TickTalk 4 smartwatch purchase to Operation Warm, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that supplies children in need with warm coats and shoes.
Operation Warm primarily works with Title 1 schools where 40% or more of the students’ families are at or below the federal poverty level. They also partner with Head Start programs, homeless shelters, and other organizations with urgent needs and have helped over 5 million children since starting the organization 24 years ago.
“In the harsh winter months as some families come together for celebration, others struggle with basic necessities like staying warm," said President and Co-Founder, Ying Gong. "We hope that with this next TickTalk Gives campaign, we can help to provide not only warm coats, but also hope for these affected children.”
With 95% of every dollar going to programming, Operation Warm has served over 2,100 communities working to connect underserved children with community resources. By manufacturing their own coats, the organization is able to provide students, ranging from preschool to sixth grade, with high-quality, brand new coats to last years to come.
By starting the new year with another Gives Back initiative, TickTalk hopes the efforts will inspire others to give back to their community. To help donate coats to children in need this winter, supporters can place an order on TickTalk’s website and a portion of every purchase will automatically be set aside for Operation Warm. Donations can also be made directly on Operation Warm’s website. To learn more, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
