CAMPAIGN: The CSR Minute

CONTENT: Press Release

Climate Counts has partnered with the University of New Hampshire to expand its effort to address climate change. An independent nonprofit, Climate Counts will locate its main office at UNH to take advantage of the university’s nationally known climate research and campus-wide Sustainability Academy. Launched in 2007, Climate Counts scores 150 companies annually on their voluntary corporate climate commitment.  

AWEARNESS, the Kenneth Cole Foundation, and Soles4Souls, an international shoe charity, are partnering to launch a retail program to raise funds for a community wellness center in Haiti. Customers visiting any Kenneth Cole store can drop off a gently worn pair of shoes, and/or donate $10 at checkout. Customers can also donate $10 online at kennethcole.com. Donations will go directly to support the construction of a wellness center for Haiti earthquake victims. As a thank-you, customers will receive a 20 percent discount on any full-price purchase. The program runs through September 16th.
