While in Berlin for Bread & Butter a little over a year ago, we came to the realization that 2013 would mark our 10th year in business and quickly began to brainstorm ways to celebrate the milestone. We had just moved into our new showroom and office space on Allen St. and realized that the space would be perfect for a month-long pop up shop. Over the past year, we've reached out to collaborate with the many friends of 3sixteen that have aided in our success along the way. This product of over a year's worth of planning has been coined the Decade Collection, which we are excited to reveal to the world this Saturday, September 7th.
When we first founded the company, something that was very important to us was that we use it to help others. Throughout the years, we've partnered with different organizations across the world to donate overstock clothing to be sent to third world countries and areas of the USA that were hit by natural disasters. We also had an internal program for the first 2 years that we were in business called "Giving Back" whereby we donated a portion of our profits to a local charity in our community. It's important to us that we not only take from our neighborhood, but that we play a role in serving and supporting it as well. This fall, for the month of September, we'll be implementing the "Giving Back" program again. For every purchase that's made both in-store and via our website, we'll be giving 10% of our profits to The Bowery Mission, an organization that's been serving the poor and homeless population in our neighborhood for over 130 years. We've volunteered there to help serve dinners and donated clothing and blankets during the power outage following Hurricane Sandy last year, so the organization and the people they serve are near and dear to our hearts. What we love most about the Bowery Mission is their effort to meet the needs of men, women and children not only financially but also emotionally and spiritually.
Our anniversary pop up shop opens this Saturday, and the Decade Collection will go live on our website at the same time. We invite you to come join us at the shop throughout this month to celebrate 10 years with us, and to see what we've been hard at work on. 3sixteen has always been about relationships, and we see the shop as a way to celebrate the amazing ones we've built over the years and to make new ones. We hope to see many of you there!
