What we’re doing this Memorial Day
We recognize the sacrifices that our soldiers are making for us all of the time and we want to help in a twofold manner. We want to create awareness about what our heroes are doing and also want to make a contribution.
Via the Memorial Day Campaign, starting this 12th of May, we are donating 5% of every ink & toner transaction to the Fisher House Foundation with coupon code “MDAY5” in an effort to help support military families all over the U.S. We will be doing this all though till the end of May. You can support our cause by placing as many orders you need, so that 5% of the sales proceeds go to a worthy cause.
