This has led to an increase in corporate social responsibility (csr) efforts. Consumers are increasingly choosing to support companies that 'do Good', and companies are doing their best to keep up with this new consumer demand. For several years, Delivering Good has been at the forefront of this movement to engage corporate partners in meaningful action, and 2019 continued this record of outreach by securing $1,670,868 in purpose marketing funds, and building awareness across business-to-business and business-to-consumer channels by partnering with new and current brands to proactively support and increase organization's visibility and recognition. Key brand partners included american eagle outfitters, whose point of sale program contributed $1.5 million to Delivering Good's work during the year, as well as ann taylor, burlington, kidbox, and wacoal.disaster relief and grant-making - since our founding in 1985, Delivering Good has responded to disasters around the world with donations of new merchandise, helping distressed families and individuals recover their lives. The past year of 2019 saw major natural disasters across the globe, a set of tragedies that displaced tens of thousands of families from their homes, took more than 3,000 lives in total, and dealt long-term damage to homes, businesses, and community infrastructure in impacted regions. Delivering Good response to disaster included a program to provide aid to the bahamas following hurricane dorian, relief for floods in the american midwest, and a partnership with the toy foundation to provide gifts to underserved children in the wake of disaster and deprivation.
