We are passionate about supporting various charities, non-profit organizations, and research foundations. We named this initiative “Operation Smile”, and it has become one of our most valuable investments.
The Power of Promo Product Marketing
We’ve seen lots of effective ways and fundraising campaigns that non-profit organizations utilize to gain new customers, donors, and volunteers, but without a doubt, the one with the highest impact has been the use of promotional products like custom T-Shirts and Hats. While other forms of advertising and marketing have a limited lifecycle, promotional products keeps the organization’s name and message long after the conclusion of events and fundraisers.
In working with several of our non-profit partners, SAS Print ’n Stitch has learned that custom printed and embroidered t-shirts, hoodies, jackets, and hats is a fantastic way to express “unity” while at the same time letting the world know who you are and what your cause is all about.
T-shirts are our most requested promotional item for fundraising events because they are quick and easy to produce. Tote bags and shopping bags are all the rage. They are a perfect giveaway item, especially when stuffed with other promotional items. Embroidered polo shirts, jackets and hats that feature your logo and inspirational messages are great identifiers of your organization, and at the same time help build volunteer or employee loyalty and appreciation.
SAS Print ’n Stitch proudly supports Hope for New Hampshire Recovery Centers, TANGO2 Research Foundation, Habitat for Humanity, Unify Against Bullying, Granite House Sober Living Centers, and The Michael Edward Gould 9-11 Foundation. Read on to discover more about these great causes so you can join in on the giving too, and save money on your next order!

TANGO2’s mission is to improve the mental lives of those children and young adults affected by TANGO2 related disease by helping to fund, coordinate and guide scientific research that leads to a better understanding of how TANGO2 mutations affect them.
TANGO2 has only recently been identified as a gene that contributes to human disease so there is not yet a deep understanding of the specifics around the underlying pathology and biochemical pathways affected. The foundation’s efforts are just getting underway as of early 2018 and will focus on building an impactful and sustainable organization that serves our mission. There is a sense of urgency around accelerating research and learning regarding TANGO2 disease to getting this off the ground so that children that are inflicted by this life-altering condition can get the care they need.

The Granite House’s extended care programs has a proven history of helping men as they seek to recover from their addictions to drugs or alcohol. They offer support and educational programs that help their residents maintain and reinforce sober living concepts. They also offer 24-hour support as well as classes and seminars that bring personal growth by addressing physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.
From money management to yoga, they understand the importance that a well-rounded program plays in recovery and a sober lifestyle. An extended care program also provides the time needed for the addicted brain to clear, to form new habits, and an environment where clients can prove they can handle the ups and downs of life.

“One moment in time changed are lives forever”, reflects Kathie Anderson, the loving mother of her 29 year old eternal son, Michael. In 2002, The Michael Edward Gould Foundation was born from the ashes of 9.11.2001. Kathie’s grief of loss was at times overwhelming, but, in the midst of all the darkness, Kathie speaks of a shining light. The light was the voices of millions of people from around the world who shared their love with her in so many ways. The kindness from others in her time of need prompted the creation of her foundation which will ensure that this very same light will shine for others in their time of need. Much of the donations given to date has been “gifts of kind”, none directly from the Foundation itself. Many are personal, but more often they are to non-profits benefiting children and animals.
