Over the past few months, we have witnessed the mounting impacts of the coronavirus. This global pandemic has forced many businesses to shut their doors, which is bad news for many small companies. In Colorado, Governor Jared Polis recently established a COVID-19 relief fund to help small businesses and other organizations during this trying time. At Out of the Blue, we wanted to do our part in supporting local communities as well. We’re very pleased to announce that we’ve officially launched an online shop to generate funds for the Colorado coronavirus relief fund.
How OTB Is Supporting Local Communities
In this trying time, it’s imperative that we all chip in and do our part for the greater good. At Out of the Blue, we knew that we could leverage our services to raise funds for this important COVID-19 relief fund. We can easily create virtual apparel stores for our clients and we decided to use that to our advantage. Our team has developed an online storefront to raise those crucial funds and give Colorado residents another opportunity to help our state’s recovery from this global crisis.
Through this virtual store, we are currently selling “Colorado Strong” t-shirts in a wide range of sizes. A portion of the proceeds from that virtual store will go directly to the Colorado COVID-19 relief fund. We’ve sweetened the deal even further, by providing a FREE silicone wristband with every t-shirt purchase. When you purchase one of these shirts, you’re supporting local communities while simultaneously receiving terrific merchandise. It’s a win-win situation for everyone involved, especially those who need the financial support.
What Will The Proceeds Accomplish?
The guidelines of the Colorado COVID-19 relief fund are very specific and very generous simultaneously. As mentioned above, a portion of the proceeds from this online shop will go directly to the relief fund. Those proceeds will then be used to support state-wide initiatives across three major categories: prevention, impact, and recovery efforts.
The funds will be utilized efficiently to support things like making medical equipment, food services, small business support, childhood education, health services, and much more. Nonprofits, local governments, school districts, and small businesses in Colorado can receive financial support through this coronavirus relief fund. All they have to do is submit a grant application before the deadlines. In a short span of time, they’ll receive the funds they need to get through this crisis.
Every Little Bit Helps
At Out of the Blue, we are incredibly proud to be supporting local communities through this relief fund. We’re all living in a very uncertain time right now and people all across Colorado need your support. While there are plenty of ways to lend a helping hand, the state-wide “stay-at-home” order makes it difficult to show your support. Our virtual storefront can make that social responsibility a little bit easier for you.
Are you interested in showing your support for local Colorado communities? Then make the most of this situation with Out of the Blue! Head over to our virtual storefront today and show off your state pride with a “Colorado Strong” t-shirt.
