Profit with Purpose. Why product giving matters even more in challenging times

Profit with Purpose. Why product giving matters even more in challenging times

Wednesday 25th November, 11:00 – 12:00, Online

Why should companies incorporate product giving into their plans when times are hard?

Has society changed in light of the pandemic?

What’s the real value of giving products this year?

The pandemic has affected everyone – from employers and businesses to charities and community support services and the families, individuals and households they support. No one is immune to needing a helping hand and everyone has a role to play in protecting those around them - our communities, colleagues, customers and partners. Together we’re stronger and supporting each other when times are hard is when it matters most.  

At In Kind Direct, we believe that no one should have to go without life’s essentials, which is why this Christmas we are committed to getting the most needed products to everyone who needs them. Working closely with our charity network to identify the most needed essential products and with our corporate partners who give their support on an ongoing basis, we bring the two together to show the real impact on people’s lives.  

The power of product giving to provide dignity, increase self-esteem and give joy is needed now more than ever. The companies we work with feel their responsibility to support and protect those who use their products and services, and help communities not just to survive, but to thrive.   

In our November event you will hear:

-The challenges and issues facing households up and down the country

-Corporate Partner Case Study with Andrex (Kimberly-Clark) – how product giving has become more important than ever this year

-The real impact of product giving on our charity network
