PROMO: We told you HERE about local printer Impress Ink (Facebook | Website) launching an online shop to raise funds for local businesses. Well, the first month’s numbers are in and they’ve raised $30,228 since launching.
OrlandoMerchStore.com features designed submitted by local restaurants, businesses, and organizations that will be sold for $25 a shirt on the site. That price includes delivery and $10 of each purchase will go back to the business that submitted the design. Another $2 of that purchase will also go to Second Harvest Food Bank.
With over 2,500 shirts sold, they’ve managed to raise over $5,000 for Second Harvest Food Bank so far, which translates to over 20,000 meals for those in need. The other $25,190 raised will go back to the participating small businesses and restaurants.
Impress Ink told Bungalower that roughly 35 percent of online shoppers chose to support more than two businesses at a time and that they have shipped shirts to almost 40 different states so far.
Editor’s Note: Full disclosure, Bungalower Media has a shirt on the store, pictured above.
