FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Los Angeles, CA, October 28, 2020 – Vistaprint and Vistaprint Corporate Solutions are joining Goodwill Southern California in the movement for an equitable economic recovery.
Since 1916, Goodwill Southern California has provided employment services and training for those with vocational challenges. Since March, Goodwill Southern California has distributed more than $3 million in emergency supportive services to the community, eclipsing the sum total of all funds distributed last year. And with unemployment rates not seen since the Great Depression, the demand for those employment and training services has grown immensely at a time when pathways to funding have become more challenging.
Vistaprint and Vistaprint Corporate Solutions, the marketing and design partner to millions of small businesses around the world, are the latest partners to show their commitment to the “Do Good. Do Goodwill.” campaign by donating more than 3,000 one-of-a-kind designed RFS™ Masks. The “Do Good. Do Goodwill.” campaign and donations to the Jobs Accelerator Fund will help Goodwill SoCal expand capacity to empower individuals and serve their employment needs in the wake of COVID-19.
“This pandemic has had wide-sweeping impact in communities around the world with many people losing their jobs or having to close down their businesses. A resource like Goodwill SoCal’s Jobs Accelerator Fund becomes even more crucial at times like these,” Vistaprint North America Market Director Erin Shea said. “We’re very proud to form this partnership and provide this mask donation to help protect Goodwill SoCal’s essential workers as they continue providing these vital services.”
The limited-edition face masks with a replaceable filter system will feature the vibrant Goodwill SoCal colors, including the iconic blue, the campaign slogan “Do Good. Do Goodwill.”, and logos from both organizations. The face masks feature adjustable straps for comfort and room for a replaceable filter. To see an example of the limited-edition face mask, visit a Goodwill SoCal retail location today. To purchase your own “Do Good. Do Goodwill” mask, visit the online store at https://goodwillsocal.go.customprintcenter.com/. A portion of each sale will support Goodwill SoCal’s newly created Job’s Accelerator Fund.
