Blue Q

Blue Q is firmly dedicated to the principle that businesses, regardless of their size, have the power to effect meaningful change in the world. This philosophy is a cornerstone of their operation, as they proudly allocate 1% of sales from their best-selling categories—not merely profits—to a variety of causes. This commitment to philanthropy is ingrained in their business model, meticulously incorporated into their costing sheets to ensure that every product contributes to charitable causes.

Blue Q's philanthropic efforts are wide-ranging, supporting humanitarian aid, environmental initiatives, and social justice movements across the globe, each of which holds equal importance to them as a compassionate and active company. Their involvement extends beyond monetary donations; they place high value on establishing authentic, enduring relationships with the organizations they support. Engagements with inspiring entities, such as Doctors Without Borders, serve as a source of inspiration and motivation for the Blue Q team. They are also deeply involved in their local community, participating with organizations like The Housatonic Valley Association, Habitat for Humanity, and local humane societies in a variety of community events, including block parties, soap box derbies, and environmental clean-ups. Blue Q's hope is that their continuous support for these vital causes will not only create a direct impact but also inspire their customers and fellow businesses to participate in this collective endeavor for significant change.

Project Social T

Project Social T demonstrates a profound commitment to making a positive impact on society by donating 5% of their monthly sales to The People Concern, a charity dedicated to providing comprehensive care for those in need. This donation aids in a multitude of ways, including offering on-site and mobile medical care, permanent supportive housing solutions, mental health services with psychiatric care, and support for victims of domestic violence through shelters, support groups, and a 24-hour hotline. Furthermore, they contribute to interim housing initiatives that help individuals stabilize their health, develop critical life skills, and find permanent housing solutions.

Project Social T goes beyond financial assistance, as they actively engage with a variety of smaller, yet impactful charities nationwide. By familiarizing themselves with these organizations' volunteers and goals, they aim to raise awareness and provide a voice to non-profit organizations that often struggle for recognition. This approach reflects Project Social T's deep understanding of the importance of community involvement and their dedication to driving real change by supporting those who work tirelessly to improve the lives of others.

Faherty

Faherty is deeply invested in environmental conservation, demonstrated by their role as Corporate Sponsors of the Surfrider Foundation, an organization committed to protecting the world's oceans, waves, and beaches. They also have been active members of 1% for the Planet since 2017, in which they dedicate 1% of their swimwear sales to various environmental organizations, reinforcing their pledge to support sustainable practices. Additionally, they have partnered with Fabscrap, a non-profit aimed at reducing commercial textile waste. Through this collaboration, Faherty recycles unused fabric scraps from their Design team, furthering their commitment to environmental responsibility and minimizing their ecological footprint. These initiatives reflect Faherty's dedication not only to eco-friendly fashion but also to making a meaningful contribution to the preservation of our planet's natural resources.
