SwipeLife is always inspired by an entrepreneurial spirit. It’s more astounding when this drive is coupled with an obligation to give back through charity. The 46NYC company has combined their talents and passions to achieve just that.
Being able to affect positive change on a person’s life is a quality that many of us possess and have the means to. We’re all familiar with the merits of charity, and some of us are fortunate to participate or receive in these selfless acts. The images of depressed areas that flood our news media outlets are a stark reality for the people in these areas. It’s these harsh realities – abuse, poverty, hunger, education, water – that add to a growing epidemic.
It’s a privilege to have a direct involvement in improving a community that’s in need of basic resources and education. Having someone design a platform that enables the public to provide these necessities are the measures that make this change a reality. The 46NYC group is committed to bringing awareness to these areas of need, and their stout efforts have already made substantial contributions to these causes through their partnerships with several International non-profit organizations.
The first idea that spawned the 46NYC concept was to sell a t-shirt and have a portion of proceeds go to a proven relief organization. The idea was simple, but it required steadfastness to bridge these networks and market their idea – an ongoing process that presents itself as a rewarding challenge. Their latest campaign with the Wine to Water organization helps to raise funds for communities that are in dire need of potable water.
SwipeLife touched base with Operations Director, Hal Kivette, to understand the spirit that helped build the 46NYC company and all of their charitable endeavors.
