THE MAILWORKS LAUNCHES FUNDRAISING EFFORT TO SUPPORT LGBTQ+ COMMUNITY

100 percent of purchase price from vinyl decal sales to support LGBTQ+ organizations and businesses for Pride Month in June

ALBANY, N.Y. (Jun. 1, 2021) — Albany’s go-to print + mail facility, The Mailworks, is launching its next charitable initiative to benefit the LGBTQ+ community. To coincide with Pride Month, the company will sell vinyl decals for the entire month of June and will donate 100 percent of the purchase price to support LGBTQ+ organizations and businesses. 

By visiting www.themailworks.com/pride, customers can choose from a selection of 8.5 x 11” vinyl decals for $10. The decals, which are printed and mailed out of The Mailworks’ Albany facility, feature various designs to support awareness for the LGBTQ+ movement. Each decal also features a scannable QR code to generate additional donations by directing the user to the decal purchase link.

“The Mailworks is proud to support Pride Month by fundraising for the LGBTQ+ movement,” says Brianne Baggetta, President & CEO of The Mailworks. “It is our hope that by using our resources to support this initiative, it helps build compassion and awareness for the LGBTQ+ community.”

100 percent of the purchase price from the decal sales will support LGBTQ+ organizations and businesses, including The Pride Center of the Capital Region, In Our Own Voices, and the Alliance for Positive Health, and more. The purchaser can select where their purchase funds are directed when ordering, and also have the option to increase their donation. A “Shipping and Expenses” fee is charged as a line item to cover production, labor and shipping costs.

This idea for this charitable initiative stems from the company’s success supporting the Black Lives Matter movement. Through a similar initiative in 2020, the company raised over $30,000 for local Black-owned organizations and enterprises.
