We recently worked with the organization, New York Needs You (NYNY) to create a custom lapel pin for their program that solicits donations to help low income college students get the funding they need to be successful.  The group provides mentorship, training, and valuable resources to first generation college students.  These young men and women have parents who did not attend college.  They are first generation in their family to do so.

The reason why they target first generation college students is simple.  They are 5% more likely to drop out of college when compared to their peers.  85% of first generation graduates are considered low income and on average make less money after graduating college.  These resources allow college students know that they are not alone and that someone believes in them and the contributions they are making to society.

Every non-profit organization like NYNY needs donations to keep their doors open.  To help facilitate donations, the organization created a program called the 101% Society.  Members of the society pledge to give 1% of their income to the organization as a donation.  Such selflessness should be recognized and an outstanding gift of a lapel pin seems to fit the bill quite nicely.

Many organizations find custom lapel pins the perfect gift for donors.  They feel this way because the small tokens of appreciation are personal and meaningful.  Because they are custom, they can be created in any size, shape, style, and color that the organization prefers.  This makes them truly one-of-a-kind designs.  Groups like NYNY don’t have to worry about their pins looking the same as another non-profit’s because they won’t.
