LAS VEGAS – Southern Nevada-based urban merchandising company EXD3 has partnered with the Salvation Army to help the organization achieve its mission of helping those in need.
EXD3 will donate $1 from the sale of each of its UrbanHeadz Michael Jackson bobbleheads, available at www.TheUrbanHeadz.com. The Jackson bobbleheads, which retail for $19.99, are an officially approved product by the Michael Jackson estate.
When all of the existing line of Michael Jackson Bobbleheads is sold, EXD3 will make a $34,000 donation to the Salvation Army.
“We chose the Salvation Army because they help all kinds of people in need,” said W. Monroe Britt, EXD3 owner and CEO. “Everyone needs a leg up sometimes, and the Salvation Army provides that assistance to those who need it.”
EXD3 also donated 700 bobbleheads to the Salvation Army in Las Vegas and Chicago for kids who wouldn’t otherwise have Christmas presents.
“We are organizing two Christmas gifts for each of about 5,000 to 6,000 children who would very likely receive nothing for Christmas. These bobbleheads will make great gifts for the older children,” said Leslee Rogers, public relations officer for The Salvation Army. “Additionally, we are excited to work with EXD3 to designate where their monetary donation will go. We have many worthy programs and are honored they have chosen to partner with our organization, allowing us to continue ‘Doing the Most Good’ here in Southern Nevada.”
The Salvation Army, an evangelical part of the universal Christian church established in 1865, has been supporting those in need in Christ’s name without discrimination for more than 130 years in the United States. Nearly 30 million Americans receive assistance from The Salvation Army each year through the broadest array of social services that include providing food for the hungry, relief for disaster victims, assistance for the disabled, outreach to the elderly and ill, clothing and shelter to the homeless and opportunities for underprivileged children. Approximately 82 cents of every dollar spent is used to support those services in 5,000 communities nationwide.
