Noble Impact is a not for profit group based out of Little Rock, Arkansas that was founded in 2013. They work with k-12 students with the mission to provide all students with a relevant and purpose-driven education.
They achieve this mission, as their website states, by exposing students to relevant experiences and tools that enable them to navigate a world defined by uncertainty with an entrepreneurial skill set and a public service mindset. Whether they participate in classroom or afterschool experiences, they exit the programs with newfound purpose and passion that will drive them to make a difference in their communities.
Noble Impact came to Crestline right before the holiday season because they were looking for the perfect way to thank their key partners for all of the hard work, inspiration and collaboration they brought to the organization throughout the year. They were putting together gift bags and they came to us on a mission to find “the perfect mug” for their partners to sip their morning coffee from. Their hope was that each day their partners would be reminded of the positive change they’re enacting in their communities through their work with Noble Impact.
Their mission was accomplished when they discovered the Outdoor Adventure Mug; it was indeed “the perfect mug” they had been searching for. Erica Swallow, VP of Product at Noble Impact said, “the outdoor adventure mug was weighty, hearty and full of character.” Erica also stated that “the mug embodies the adventurous Southern spirit that our team is all about. Being based in Arkansas, we take pride in the outdoors; today we even endearingly refer to the mug by its full name, The Outdoor Adventure Mug, because it’s just the perfect description!”
They knew this mug would be the perfect gift because they could see themselves and their partners using it in a number of ways and taking them everywhere, even out on a long hike. They imprinted the mug with their logo on one side and a quote by the Honorable Winthrop Rockefeller that reads: “Every citizen has the duty to be informed, to be thoughtfully concerned, and to participate in the search for solutions”.
After receiving the mugs, many of their partners voiced big plans for how they intended to use the mug. One said he was going to use it to eat his chili out of while another thought it would be perfect for oatmeal. The mug accomplished exactly what they had hoped it would by transcending beverages alone and making its way into the lives of their partners and friends in so many other ways.
Also included in the gift bags given out to partners and teammates were a notebook and stickers, but Erica noted that by far the biggest reaction came once the mug was pulled out of the bag. Since the gift bags have been handed out they have received a number of social media interactions showing off the mugs from the happy recipients.
This promotional mug was perfect for accomplishing the goal that this organization had at hand. If you need help finding the perfect gift or giveaway for your organization, contact one of our Promotional Product Experts today!
