GIVING BACK

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 it became 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! Check out the Give Back Stack of the month here.

  • Final Victory Animal Rescue- $350
    FVAR needed donations for their dog to stay clean and warm during winter during January 2023. 50% of FVAR dog bracelet sales were donated.

  • Epworth Children's Home- Donated 50 children's bracelets
    Buy a Stack, Give a Stack. With this Christmas initiative, all boys and girls of Epworth Children's Homes received a bracelet for Christmas in December 2022.

  • Final Victory Animal Rescue- $250
    FVAR needed donations for their dog mamas and puppies. They were facing a puppy and mama overload at the shelter in November 2022. Our donations helped mamas not have to birth puppies in cold shelters or on the streets and to prevent puppies from facing abandonment and neglect.

  • Feeding Florida- $600
    The October Give Back Stack was dedicated to Hurricane Ian relief. 50% of sales from the stack were donated to Feeding American, Florida at the end of the month. Cola Stacks donated $600, which provided 3,720 meals.

  • Girls on the Run- $500
    Eliza Fletcher was killed on her run the morning of September 2, 2022. To pair her love for running and teaching, 50% of the September Give Back Stack was donated to Girls on the Run in memory of Eliza.

  • 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!
