Give Back Stacks
Cola Stacks started with the hope of selling one bracelet and maybe gaining a following of 100! When the platform exceeded expectations, I felt like I should use it as an opportunity to raise awareness and give back to those in need. This is how Give Back Stacks originated! The initiative started off small and then grew into a monthly occurrence. Here is what we have done so far! We? Yes, we! Cola Stacks would not be able to give back if it weren't for the generosity and support from people like you!
- Teacher Wishlist- $100
The August Give Back Stacks were dedicated to giving back to teachers. At the end of the month, $100 was divided between two teachers and purchases were made on their Amazon Wishlists for items in the classroom. Every student needs to read The Very Hungary Caterpillar and play Chutes and Ladders, so of course those were purchased from their lists!
- Final Victory Animal Rescue- $100
A sweet pup was dropped off at a local shelter with a blunt force wound on his back that required medical care ASAP. It's believe he was struck in the back with an axe or machete of some sort. His vet bill was over $4000. In an effort to contribute to the bill, 70% of the Summer Stack sales were donated to FVAR via Venmo in August 2022.
- Animal Mission- $345
Animal Mission had a goal of providing beds in all 161 kennels at Columbia Animal Services, so all shelter dogs could have a bed. 50% of Dog Mom bracelet sales were donated to support this cause in July 2022. All dogs need a bed!
- 21 Uvalde- $400
To honor the 21 lives lost in Uvalde, TX at Robb Elementary School, Cola Stacks created a 21 bracelet in May 2022. 80% of all sales were equally donated to the verified families on GoFundMe.
- Ukraine- $2200
Created a Ukraine Give Back Stack and donated 80% of sales to Bethenny Frankel's organization #BStrong which provided hygiene kits, blankets, generators, and sleeping bags to Ukraine's NATO bordering countries in February 2022.
- Final Victory Animal Rescue- $30
Cola Stacks participated in the Betty White Challenge in January 2022. $5 of all Dog Mom bracelet sales were donated to FVAR via Venmo.
- 13 Fallen Heroes- $1377
Equally donated the money raised to support the families of the 13 fallen heroes killed in Kabul attack in August 2021. 80% of the Give Back Stack sales were donated to this cause via verified GoFundMe accounts.
- FTP Dallas- $105
In February 2021, Texas was hit with a severe storm ("snowmageddon") leaving families in a whirlwind. This initiative provided Texans with relief.
- Epworth Childrens Home- Donated 40 children's bracelets
Buy a Stack, Give a Stack. With this Christmas initiative, all girls at Epworth Children's Homes received a bracelet for Christmas in December 2020.
