Starting today, customers will be able to donate to The Fresh Air Fund when buying online at FreeCountry.com, Free Country will match customers’ donations up to $25,000. Additionally, from Friday, June 10, 2022, to Sunday, June 12, 2022, Free Country will donate ten percent of all sales to The Fresh Air Fund.
“The outdoors belongs to all of us and we want to give everyone the freedom to belong outside, in comfortable clothing for wherever their adventure takes them,” said Ira Schwartz, Founder and CEO of Free Country. “That’s why we’ve partnered with The Fresh Air Fund to invest in our city’s children who will experience and develop a love for the outdoors, which is our core mission and what inspires Free Country every day.”
“We are so proud to partner with Free Country and further our mission to transform the lives of children from New York City’s communities that are underserved,” said Lisa Gitelson, CEO of The Fresh Air Fund. “Every dollar impacts a child by offering them transformative experiences. We are excited to kick off this initiative that will strengthen the children and families of our city.”
In addition to the partnership, Free Country will continue celebrating National Great Outdoors Month with customer giveaways every week in June.
