At Jack Mason, giving back is an integral part of our company culture. Since the company was founded, we have helped support many charities and non-profits that benefit not only our local community but also some significant international efforts.
Most recently, in honor of Earth Day, we launched our first solar-powered watch, and a percentage of sales went to support Conservation International's forest conservation efforts. Together we helped to protect 50,000 trees.
When the crane fell on the Elan City Lights apartment complex down the street from our office, we hosted a donation center in our warehouse. We invited those people who lost their homes and belongings to pick up whatever they needed. With the help of the local community, we were able to donate thousands of items from clothing, pet supplies to gift cards.
Another local cause that we supported this year was TYLER'S Dam That Cancer premier fundraising event for the Flatwater Foundation. This non-profit organization provides access to mental health services for those in need that have been affected by cancer. Jack Mason donated watches to all the participants and was one of several Texas-based brands to give their support.
Over the last few years, we have helped support several other organizations, including Dallas Contemporary, DIFFA, Young Texans Against Cancer, The Bridge: Homeless Recovery Center, and 1 Million 4 Anna Foundation.
What do we have planned for 2020?
For Earth Day 2020, we will be launching a new Solar Watch in support of another non-profit organization. Together we are encouraging people to get out and explore the beautiful places that environmental organizations work so hard to protect.
Stay tuned for more information on the new watch design and to find out which organization we have chosen to support.
