It’s no secret that NationWares gifts have the power to put a smile on your face, add warmth to your heart, and transform lives around the world through the power of education & employment. This year we were happy to see so many of our business and corporate friends sharing the love this holiday season by gifting NationWares to their faithful clients. Here are some of our favourites…
Our friends at Archon Systems are the masterminds behind our Inflow Inventory system that we use to track our numerous products and collections. For the second year in a row they have given their clients unique NationWares gifts so we asked them what influenced them to give and they happily replied,
“Giving gifts from Nationwares is a natural extension of our company culture and philosophy. At Archon Systems, we build inventory software that helps small businesses grow and prosper. By partnering with organizations such as NationWares and Kiva.org, we can also help aspiring entrepreneurs in developing countries to build a sustainable living.
Not only does a NationWares’ gift stand out among the typical corporate basket gifts, you’re actually helping to make a difference in someone’s life. You’re giving a gift that gives; it’s a win-win opportunity. You know that that warm fuzzy feeling you get when you’re doing some good? That comes with every purchase from NationWares!”
We also heard from our friends at Ironwood Wealth Management who happily shared Christmas Cards with their clients that were made to support children & youth with Autism & Downs-Syndrome in Ecuador. Here’s what they had to say…
“This year, Ironwood chose NationWares as the supplier for all client Christmas cards to show our support and belief in their mission of economic and social development. Though its a small expenditure for us, the benefits to these small business owners are greatly magnified due to the international reach of NationWares allowing them to sell their products into markets they traditionally would have no access to. The stunning cards we purchased were hand-designed in Ecuador by children with developmental and cognitive disorders- where else would we have the opportunity to support such a unique social cause but through NationWares? Clients have been raving about the design and quality of cards and asking for more information about the NationWares mission and other products. We are proud to play a role in raising awareness for social enterprises such as NationWares which are leading the emergence of a new business model focusing on the social and environmental impacts in addition to economic benefits.
I would highly recommend that business owners in Canada look to NationWares for ethically sourced and sustainably produced products for any type of client appreciation campaign. You will be supporting the development of entrepreneurs and small business owners who simply do not have the same opportunities for success that we have because of the circumstances of their birth- NationWares aims to open a new door for them to succeed. If you do client appreciation at any point in the year, instead of the usual chocolates or gift cards, give a gift with meaning this year.
TD Canada Trust has also jumped aboard the NationWares giving train this holiday season. Since they are small business leaders in their field they know what it’s like to work with entrepreneurs from all walks of life. Naturally, NationWares and TD just fit together. This year they helped us bring small business cheer to a group of women in Guatemala who earn a living making artisan crafts. One of their holiday showstoppers includes hand beaded Christmas ornaments that the TD Beechwood branch has sold for us right off their very own tree! TD customers have been amazingly receptive to NationWares by purchasing ornaments, learning more about our unique approach to international development, poverty eradication, and job creation on a global scale.
Thanks again to everyone else who has decided to give the gift of hope & opportunity this holiday season. We really appreciate you taking the time (and funds) to share the love! Your continued support has made 2012 our best year yet! We have so many more exciting new products and stories of transformation to share with you in 2013.
