Oliver Carson, Founder of Better Place Brands announced today the launch of Greyhound Coffee Company — a coffee, apparel, and gift brand that will donate 20 percent of its profits to a group of approximately 12 Greyhound rescue organizations, nationwide.
The brand, available immediately at GreyhoundCoffeeCompany.com becomes the twenty-fifth brand launched by Carson under the umbrella of his social responsibility company, Better Place Brands, bringing the total number of animal rescue organizations supported financially by Carson’s company to more than 200.
“We operate 25 brands aimed at helping animal shelters across the county,” said Carson. “We’re excited to announce our newest brand aimed at helping Greyhound rescue organizations. We hope our mission — ‘Drink Coffee. Save Dogs.’ — will resonate with people in the Greyhound rescue community the same way our other brands have resonated with people in various breed specific communities”
Currently, Carson is calling for rescue organizations to reach out to him through the “Apply for Support” button within the top navigation of GreyhoundCoffeeCompany.com. To apply, they should simply provide a bit of information about themselves and a link to their website or social media sites. Carson says he intends to choose rescues based upon their mission and geography, to cover the U.S., geographically, with financial support for Greyhound rescues.
“We’re in Greyhound rescue groups now on social media, seeking rescues to support,” he explained. “Once we have our group together, we’ll list the organizations we support on our home page so customers can see precisely where their donations are going. We’ll send checks quarterly, and we’ll also donate merchandise to fundraisers of these organizations. Whenever we launch a new brand, it usually takes about a week to organize and select a group of rescues to support; we’ll have those listed on our website in just a matter of days.”
