The Quilted Northern® brand is highlighting everyday people who perform acts of comfort in their communities—ranging from those who provide education through music to those who provide the underserved with warm coats.
To say thank you to those lending a hand, the Quilted Northern® brand is donating $10,000 to ten different 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations, also known as comfort creators, so they can make an even bigger difference.
Quilted Northern® and independent creative agency Mekanism chose highly localized grassroots organizations in order to create the most impact in local communities across a diverse range of social issues.
“We hear stories every day about people all over the country who commit their time, energy, and creativity to bring comfort to their communities where it’s needed most. Little acts of comfort can truly make a big difference, and with that we aimed to create a bigger campaign with Mekanism to shine a light and give support to these people and organizations who are doing so much good. The stories are as powerful as they are comforting, and we hope they’ll inspire others in their own communities as they have inspired us,” said Nicole Cook, Director, Tissue Brand Building at Georgia-Pacific.
