Project 7™, Feed The Hungry™
COSTA MESA, Calif., Sept. 18, 2012 / 3BL Media / PRNewswire/ -- Project 7, http://www.project7.com, is proud to announce the launch of their Feed The Hungry™ "We've Got A Lot Of Mouths To Feed" campaign, http://www.project7.com/feedthehungry/. From the inception of Project 7, the fight against hunger has always been a core part of their foundation. With an initial goal of providing 1 million meals in United States communities, Project 7 strives to make it possible for everyone to contribute towards the fight against hunger through the power of their everyday purchases of Project 7 products.
Project 7 is a company founded on the basis of providing products that give back and do good. The products created under their umbrella include mints, gum, coffee and water, all of which are sold online and distributed nationally in over 7,000 stores from coffee shops and grocery stores to mass retailers including Caribou™, Target™ and HMSHost™, with more partners being added. In order to further their Feed The Hungry™ initiative, Project 7 has just launched an exclusive Feed The Hungry™ iPhone case and t-shirt. Just one purchase of a t-shirt ($25.00) provides 25 meals in the U.S and the iPhone case ($25.00) will provide 10 meals to those in need.
Tyler Merrick, founder and CEO of Project 7 has always had a vision to fight the war on hunger; "This is why we built Project 7, a brand committed to providing for those in need in our own back yard. We are a small company and we realize that we cannot solve this problem ourselves. However, there are those who have been committed to this effort, such as our partner Feeding America™, and we feel privileged to be joining in this important fight." With one in seven Americans fighting hunger in the United States, Project 7 felt compelled to create a campaign such as Feed The Hungry™ that is devoted to this effort. Merrick also adds, "In an election year as we are in now, there are two sides, but hunger does not discriminate."
For every purchase of a Project 7 product, good is done in one of the seven areas of need in the United States - Feed the Hungry™, Heal the Sick™, Hope for Peace™, House the Homeless™, Save the Earth™, Quench the Thirsty™ and Teach them Well™. Project 7 has a "guaranteed give model" where each product they sell communicates on the package the impact the purchase will have, such as a meal back into American communities, a fruit tree planted back into the earth or a night of shelter for a person in need. Each year, the company publishes a quarterly giving report in order to update consumers about the good they are doing across our country through their everyday purchases. During its time in business, Project 7 has never missed a give.
