Envelopes.com Launches Non-Profit Discount Program

Envelopes.com announced the national availability of the Non-Profit Discount Program, a forward-thinking online marketing initiative that will help Non-Profit organizations, big and small, reach their funding targets through cost savings.

The new Non-Profit discount program will help any 501(c)(3) Organization to purchase supplies at an automatic discounted rate of 10% on every order.  Even bigger savings, up to 25%, can be earned when combined with the Loyalty Discount Program, which is instantly applied when shoppers register for an online account.  Savings are based on points earned for every dollar spent, $1.00 = 1 point.

“In this economy, it’s a tough time for charities.  Non-profits are seeing a trend in dwindling donations and everyone is fighting to attain their goals.   We’ve always highlighted volume discounts through our Loyalty Discount Program, but now Non-Profit organizations can benefit from the guarantee of savings every time,” said Theresa Gerardi, Customer Service Manager at Envelopes.com.

These days, charitable donations are becoming a less frequent practice due to the daily struggles that families face today.  The priority of giving to others in need has been replaced with the need to support their own.  The economic downturn has really hurt the success of philanthropy.

“In these hard times, it’s even more difficult for non-profits to achieve their goals with the limited resources available.  At Envelopes.com it is a part of our core values to “find a way” and to “continually improve”, and we believe our new Non-Profit Discount Program does just that on many levels. Its a triple win; for the non profits, their beneficiaries and Envelopes.com” said Seth Newman, President of Envelopes.com.

Attention all passengers, don’t leave your pets Unattended

The pet courier service provides an alternative to pet shipment via cargo (an option which many pet owners wish to avoid).

There are only several countries that require pet imports only on the condition that they be shipped as cargo (UK, Australia, Singapore etc.) and in addition 10%-15% of pets are shipped abroad as cargo into countries that it is not mandatory. According to Dr. Kreiner, head veterinarian at Animal Airways most families that ship their pets abroad are just not able to fly with their pets and have no other choice but to explore the cargo option.

Dr. Kreiner: “Our clients treat their pets as a part of the family in all respect. Just as they will not consider sending their 10 year old unsupervised on a domestic flight let alone fly him solo  on an international flight, the thought of sending pets by cargo makes many clients postpone or even cancel their plans just to avoid sending their pets by themselves.”

Animal Airways initiated a courier service to give pet owners peas of mind knowing that a professional pet attendant would accompany their pet from their home to their final destination where the pet is personally delivered to a family member or a representative on his behalf.

The pet courier service was innovated and developed at Animal Airways’ flight management department in the UK after recognizing the customers’ urgent need for a humane alternative to the cargo shipment. Since its official launch this year, the service has enjoyed great demand from pet owners all over the world. Animal Airways’ pet attendants have literally covered the globe providing personal pet courier to and from airports in every continent.

In additional to the pet courier service we offer pre-flight veterinary consultation and guidance, documents & regulation supervision, custom clearance at departure and arrival points, airline ticket reservation, shuttles to and from the airport, airline approved kennels and every other ground or flight services you might be in the need for.

Animal Airways’ devoted team is at your service 24-7 conversing in more than 10 languages for your convenience. We provide our pet courier service with at least three week notice in advance in order to guarantee the most competitive prices on the market.

Dr. Kreiner says that more than two million pet owners are scheduled to fly abroad during the upcoming holiday season and that the pet courier service will definitely be an incentive for them to take their pets along with the family.
