BACOLOD, Philippines, June 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Ties for Change, a new social enterprise, is launching a crowd funding campaign allowing people to preorder their handmade tie sets. Priced at $24.95, the tie sets contain a handmade tie signed by the tie's creator, as well as a matching handkerchief and set of cuff links. With the money earned from the sale of these tie sets, Ties for Change will be supporting charitable work and local projects in Bacolod.
"We started Ties for Change in an effort to give back on a local and global scale," said a company spokesperson. "Our manufacturing facility is located in Bacolod, Philippines, and we have a number of underprivileged community members who benefit from the services we provide."
Ties for Change operates on a unique model that gives back to the local community with every purchase. For every tie set that is sold, the company will donate 20 percent of the sales price to charity and 10 percent to a local project benefiting Bacolod's residents. One such charitable service Ties for Change started is the Bata Feast for underprivileged local kids. Each weekend the company feeds between 80 and 100 kids from the community. Since opening in January they have fed over 1700 hungry children through this initiative.
The crowdfunding campaign opens on May 30 and will run for 30 days. During that time, people can preorder their tie sets at a discounted rate. Tie sets are scheduled to ship by the end of September.
In addition to the preordered sets, Ties for Change offers a Tie of the Month Club. For $19.95 per month, Tie of the Month Club members can get a tie set delivered every month. Proceeds from Tie of the Month Club memberships support charitable work as well.
