C4 Belts, the stylish, earth-friendly belt company that gives back, is excited to collaborate with Best Friends Animal Society to raise funding and awareness for “C4 Best Friends Month” in March. Starting March 1, 2016, the brand will launch a fundraising campaign titled “Save Our Furry Friends” to honor pets nationwide and raise funds for Best Friends Animal Society, the only national animal welfare organization focused exclusively on ending the killing of animals in America’s shelters. C4 will donate up to $14 with each belt purchased in March. To kick off the campaign, C4 will launch their limited edition pet-inspired belt collection complete with paw-print designs, Best Friends orange and black logos and fashionable chevron prints.
C4 stands for Choose your Color, Choose your Cause. It is C4’s goal to provide a unique shopping experience to individual thinkers who will leave looking cool on the outside and feeling good on the inside. C4 partners with four charities each year that help the world in vastly different ways. With each online purchase, the company donates $1 per belt to the customer’s choice of causes. Best Friends Animal Society is among C4’s 2016 charity organizations. During the month of March 2016, each time a fan purchases a C4 belt and chooses Best Friends Animal Society as their cause, C4 will triple their standard donation to $3. If a customer purchases a belt from the limited edition Best Friends collection, C4 will donate $10, enough to microchip ID a dog or cat.
To participate via social media, supporters can post a picture with their pet, wearing their new C4 belt and tag #C4BestFriends and C4 will donate an additional $1 to Best Friends Animal Society.
Best Friends runs the nation’s largest no-kill sanctuary for companion animals, as well as lifesaving programs across the country. Since its founding in 1984, Best Friends has helped reduce the number of animals killed in shelters nationwide from 17 million per year to about 4 million.
