LOS ANGELES, Sept. 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Los Angeles Football League, LLC, a privately held Los Angeles based lifestyle brand, has just launched new products including a new line of shirts, snapback hats, and the LA hand sign foam mitt. The ubiquitous LA hand sign is being released to celebrate the NFL's arrival back in LA and to raise money for The Achievable Foundation, a Culver City nonprofit that provides services and supports to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities including the first federally qualified health center serving that community.
Los Angeles Football League is offering the foam mitt at $19.94 until September 18 when the NFL pro-football regular season begins and is played in the city for the first time since 1994. The Achievable Foundation will receive $5 per each foam mitt sold.
"We are very excited by the partnership with Los Angeles Football League, which will allow their customers to help fund our programs that directly support their neighbors with intellectual and developmental disabilities," says Carmen Ibarra, CEO of The Achievable Foundation. "Community partnerships like this help drive our ongoing fund raising efforts in order to make our important mission a reality."
Los Angeles Football League uses sports, music and pop culture influences to create apparel for residents of Los Angeles and people around the globe who love and aspire to the LA and Hollywood lifestyle. Timothy Michals, CEO of Los Angeles Football League, notes that the brand is all about celebrating local pride. "Los Angeles" Michals said, "is one of the most diverse cities in the world, but we all have one thing in common, our city. We are Angelenos, We are LA."
Michals notes that "unlike the #1 foam finger, it takes two hands coming together to make the LA hand sign. When the people of LA come together, whether it is to cheer for our local sports teams, support local charities or take on other challenges we face as Angelenos, there is nothing we can't do."
"Being able to support the community where many of our customers are based is a great feeling," says Michals. "We are getting to celebrate the return of the NFL coming back to LA through our new line of products and contribute to a worth-while cause so it's a win-win for our company."
