Sandbox Couture (www.sandboxcouture.com), an on-line, upscale boutique specializing in designer baby clothes, children’s clothing and accessories, today announced it has finalized a “Cause Marketing Program” agreement with Children’s Hospital of Orange County’s Foundation For Children (CHOC Foundation), to benefit Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC) and Children’s Hospital at Mission.
Through a dedicated promotion code, the program will provide special discounts for CHOC employees, volunteers, families and support groups as well as Sandbox Couture’s customers. Sandbox Couture will also donate a percentage of the net revenue back to the CHOC Foundation for each order where the code is utilized. Additionally, the company will be donating items to the CHOC Foundation to be used in fundraising activities and will be initiating discussions with the hospital’s auxiliary support leaders to develop activities to enhance the visibility of the program through each of their fundraising vehicles.
Catherine Seven, a spokesperson for Sandbox Couture, states, “At Sandbox Couture we are committed to supporting our community. To that end, we developed a program that costs CHOC supporters nothing, provides them a benefit, and most importantly allows all of us to contribute and support the CHOC Foundation. As a premier not-for-profit children’s hospital, CHOC relies on community support and funding to carry out its mission. Their compassion, commitment and expertise are clearly visible to anyone who visits them or has a child who is treated in one of their facilities. We are excited about supporting CHOC and look forward to a long relationship.”
She adds, “Any one who wishes to support CHOC can visit www.sandboxcouture.com and enter the code CHOC10 during checkout or visit the 'Charity Programs' section on our site for additional details.”
“CHOC is very proud to partner with Sandbox Couture and commend them on their commitment to give back to the community. Without the support of the community and business partners, CHOC would not be able to provide the level of the care we offer to all children regardless of ability to pay. We look forward to a long partnership with Sandbox Couture and encourage the community to support these efforts,” says Renae Furlow, Business Partnership Manager, CHOC Foundation for Children.
