In December of 2012, Brownstone teamed up to support a local organization during the holiday season, SkivieGivie.
SkivieGivie was founded in September of 2011 with the purpose of providing those less fortunate with one of life’s most basic necessities - undergarments. With thousands of children in the Boston area living at or below the poverty line, the campaign granted children in the Boston area with new t-shirts, socks and underwear.
Brownstone utilized our company Facebook page to reach out to the community and fulfill the campaign. For each new “like” that the page receive through December 24th, the we donated one new undergarment to SkivieGivie which was then distributed to area children in need.
"Following the success and support of last year’s ‘We ‘Like’ to Help’ campaign, we really wanted to make a difference in our local community again this year,” explained Glenn Montgomery, co-founder of Brownstone Insurance, “We realize that there are countless opportunities for people to donate and support organizations this time of year,” he continued. “So we made it especially easy for people. All they need to do is click the “Like” button on our page and they’ve essentially donated a new undergarment to a local kid in need.”
We were proudly able to donate 143 new undergarments to the organization at the end of the project, ensuring that at least 143 local children would have clean underclothes that winter.
