Mayor Sylvester Turner’s 2017 State of Mobility

Mayor Sylvester Turner’s 2017 State of Mobility, hosted June 8, will bring together the Board of Directors of the Houston Transportation Advocacy Group (TAG) as well as nearly 400 guests to hear discussions on the mayor’s vision for Houston’s connectivity and mobility aspirations.

The event is sponsored in part by Sesco Cement, who in partnership with us at trulyMAD in Houston, is proud to provide each guest with a commemorative, premium coffee mug to take home. In choosing to buy from us, Sesco decided to take advantage of our charity donation rate and give 20% of our net proceeds directly to the Houston Food Bank.

The Houston Food Bank is America’s largest and most nationally recognized meal provider to the needy. With the proceeds from the coffee mugs, the Houston Food Bank will be able to provide 100 meals for the community it services.

At trulyMAD in Houston, we believe that the growth of business should be directly tied to the strengthening of the community. For that reason, even something like a coffee mug can make a difference. Shop with us at www.trulymadsupplies.com and see how you can create a more united community, one purchase at a time.

So[u]per Bowl LI: trulyMAD in Houston Partners in Change Score a Touchdown

This Sunday, as the Atlanta Falcons and New England Patriots square off at the NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas, over 400 organizations will be lining up to tackle an entirely different opponent: Hunger.

The Souper Bowl of Caring, founded in 1990 during Super Bowl XXIV (San Francisco 49ers v. Denver Broncos for the uninitiated), raised $5,700 in donations and food items its first year. This year, by comparison, the nonprofit raked in 1.7 million food items coupled with cash donations to bring its fundraising total to over $3.2 million to feed the hungry.

Leading the way, among its 454 participants, are three trulyMAD in Houston Partners in Change. Target Hunger, Second Servings Houston, and Houston Food Bank are among the most prominent participants in the campaign, helping Houston top the charts in charitable donations by a generous margin. If you haven’t heard about any of these amazing nonprofits in the Greater Houston area, let us be the first to tell you about them!

Houston Food Bank

The Houston Food Bank, founded in 1982, is a certified member of Feeding America, the nation’s food bank network. The organization plans to grow to an annual distribution of 100 million nutritious meals by 2018.

Second Servings Houston

Second Servings Houston strives to alleviate hunger and reduce waste by rescuing excess prepared food from hotels, caterers, sports venues, cafeterias, food retailers, and other regulated food businesses, and delivering it promptly and safely to approved charitable meal providers.

Target Hunger

The mission of Target Hunger is to alleviate hunger and its root causes in the Houston neighborhoods they serve. Their vision is a Houston where no one goes hungry and everyone can provide food for themselves and their families. They distribute 3.9 million pounds of food each year – the equivalent of 3.2 million meals – to more than 11,000 individuals each month.

As an organization that strives to create dynamic philanthropy that reaches all corners of Greater Houston by uniting the needs of growing businesses with the missions of noble nonprofits, we couldn’t be more proud to partner with such generous organizations fighting for a better future.

Our Big Heart: What It Means to Us to Give Back to Houston

When we first began our company, selling activewear and apparel of all things, we saw ourselves as introducing a concept to world of business too often overlooked in our society. Rather than growing at the expense of our community, who had done so much for us in raising, supporting, and guiding us, we perceived our purpose in life and in our venture as a way to thank those around us by giving back.

The binding philosophy of trulyMAD, soon followed by trulyMAD in Houston, became that giving back wasn’t just a choice to be made by altruistic do-gooders, but rather could be the functional and charitable way that business ought to be conducted in the 21st Century. By lifting the burgeoning nonprofit and business community alike, we could empower to better create a more united Greater Houston, whereby the success of one never equated to the detriment of another.

It seemed like a radical idea before but, in The Big Heart, anything is possible. What began with a small staff and a few volunteers who wanted to spread our mission became a program, model, and outreach method we couldn’t have anticipated, as nonprofits and businesses intent on joining our movement flocked to us.

The program we devised was straightforward and utilizes a basic need in the business sector to benefit the community as a whole. We give 20% or more of our net proceeds to nonprofits we’ve chosen to partner with, source our goods from Houston warehouses, and ensure quick delivery. We grow together with Greater Houston by donating a large percentage of our own profit margin, expanding our business model and reach by empowering those with the know-how to continue their charitable work.

We hope after browsing through our products, featured charities, and assessing your own needs, you’ll find that we at trulyMAD in Houston are here to help, one office product order at a time. Review our charitable partners here, and join our movement: www.trulymadsupplies.com/charities.
