Look Good. Feel Good. Give Back
Cause Ignitor is a social enterprise that is dedicated to raising awareness and funding for great causes across the globe. We combined trendy designs and high quality apparel with great causes in order to attack the fundamental issues facing non-profits today, Awareness and Fundraising.
Our mission is to help inspire a new generation of people that make purchasing decisions based on social impact. Each of our products is inspired by a cause that we care deeply about and is making a difference in the world. We link our products with the causes to help raise awareness and funding for specific initiatives going on within their organization.
Cause Ignitor is much more than fundraising apparel. We are a community of change agents, full of strong and courageous individuals that drive positive change for good. Inspiration and greatness are not abundant resources, but we believe that anyone can be great and everyone can inspire!
Each of us has a story to tell. Here is ours:
Chief Cause Ignitor (Co-Founder)
After spending several years in the corporate world, the opportunity for a change presented itself. I like to believe that I seized the moment, or at least made lemonade out of lemons that came flying at me. Entrepreneurship has always been in my blood and life finally presented me with the opportunity to pursue one of my dreams. We loaded the wagons and headed west from Indiana, settling in San Diego, CA. Early in 2012, I was having a conversation with his Father-in-Law and eventual Co-Founder Tom Evons and my wife Sara about what an uphill battle non-profits face when trying to get the word out about what they do. It’s a catch 22, everyone wants to feel like their donations are making a difference, but few want to see their money used for advertising. It was at that meeting that we identified Awareness and Revenue as two of the main issues facing NPO’s. Not long after this epiphany and some research, Cause Ignitor was born.
Opportunities to change your life and do what you love do not come around every day. Cause Ignitor is my opportunity to drive positive change not only in my life, but in the lives of others.
