CANADA STRONG 2020

TWO CAUSES, ONE EFFORT

Collins is a 100% family-owned and operated business. That means we run it with our hearts. The Government of Canada is only offering so much support to small business owners to support their staff and themselves. We will all feel the effects of this pandemic long after the worst has passed, and as a small business, we can’t stand by and do nothing.

We have developed this idea into a campaign to engage the community, support front line workers and small business owners, and help keep our staff working from home.

HOW WE’RE DOING IT

We’ve created a logo to brand apparel (i.e. hoodies, t-shirts, hats, etc.) with ‘CANADA STRONG’ + ‘Small Businesses Come Together’ or 'Support your Front Line Workers'with an option to have your city/community/school printed on the back. These will be sold online with direct shipping. 10% of each order you place will go back to the small business that referred you, and another 10% will go into the fund.
