We would like to express our gratitude and thank everyone that has supported LagosHats.com since the website became active. Support has come from many parts of the world in different forms, from people rocking their LagosHats.com gear proudly in different cities, to positive feedback on our apparel, and to “likes” and “shares” on Facebook and Instagram. We are truly grateful.
We are very close to selecting the public primary school that will receive the school supplies for the academic year of 2015/2016. The decision will be based on need of the schools and the recommendations from a few of the outreach programs that we have solicited advice from. We hope to make a decision by the end of November 2014.
In order to maximize the amount of funds that we can eventually provide for the school supplies, we have strategized to involve a few corporate partners in Lagos. The goal with proactively engaging these corporate partners is to convince them to match funds that we will commit. Their commitment can either be in full, i.e., matching the exact amount that we commit, or it can be partial, i.e., that they match only a fraction of the amount that we commit to. Either way, every commitment from a corporate partner goes a long way.
We will make an effort in highlighting each corporate partner that commits to this effort. Please continue to follow our progress here. Once again, thank you for your support. Eko o ni baje!
