As the old saying goes, “Charity starts at home”. The guys and girls at Otterbox are showing this to be true with their latest press release in regards to the recent tornadoes in Colorado. If only all large companies could come together in time of need then relief efforts for human tragedy would be made heaps easier.
“Fort Collins, COLO— Less than ten miles from the headquarters of Otter Products, LLC., tornadoes instantaneously turned lives upside down. Homes, vehicles, and belongings were lost, hundreds were injured and one man even lost his life. To help a nearby family or families rebuild after the devastation, OtterBox announces they will donate 10% of online proceeds from sales in June 2008.
Talking to people around town and at the office after the storm, it was evident the close connections to those afflicted by the tornadoes.
“We are looking for a family or families through the Red Cross, churches and other organizations to offer our assistance to,” said Curt Richardson, CEO of Otter Products, LLC. “The OtterBox team is a family and we want to pull together to offer what resources we can to help those who have lost so much.”
Whether making a monetary donation or going to assist in these areas, OtterBox employees are ready for the challenge.
“So many people along the Colorado Front Range fell victim to these destructive tornadoes and OtterBox wants to do everything we can to help,” said Richardson. “As part of these communities we feel especially inclined to offer our support.”
