Since its founding in 2012, a tech-driven shoe company, Plae, has marveled the consumers with amazing customized and comfortable gender-neutral sneakers. The sneakers come in designs for kids and adults. The shoe brand is just not dominant in the US. They are a top brand in the UK and other parts of the world.
Plae is known to involve the customers in the designing of the shoes. They allow the customers to make suggestions about the type of shoes that they want.
While this is a reason enough to love Plae, there is more to like about the shoe brand. The company has always had the ‘heart’ to give back to the community. It offers a plethora of discounts, and you can find promo codes for Plae shoes on CouponCause.com. Through its Plae-it-forward charity program, they support community-based charity causes and have been able to change the lives of many globally.
How the Plae-it-Forward Program Works
Plae-it-forward is designed to work at the community level. It allows you to list a cause that you think will help your community if you are provided with the necessary financial help. If your cause is approved, you are entitled to yearly donations from Plae.
To get the financial help, you are required to follow these three steps:
- Choose the cause that you want financial help for. Some of the options to choose from include education, art, health, research, environmental conservation, and family support.
- Wait to be provided with a unique code that people can use at the checkout section when shopping. Before you are picked, the company vets your application to see if you are a suitable candidate. The awarding of the checkout code means that you are a verified Plae ambassador.
- Share your unique code with other shoppers and wait to earn 10% on all shoe purchases made to support your charity cause. The company always posts the donation codes on their website for shoppers to see and pick what cause to support when they shop.
Some of the Charity Organizations that Plae Supports
For several years now, Plae has partnered with Make-A-Wish, Baby2Baby, and Firefighter Toy Program. Plae offers these charity organizations financial donations on a yearly basis to help run their charity causes comfortably. Just recently, Plae partnered with Bay Area Rescue Mission, a charity organization that feeds and clothes the homeless in Bay Area.
You are required to use the Give699 code at the checkout section to donate 10% of your purchase value to the mission. The good thing is that the code does not expire and will run as much as the partnership between Plae and Bay Area Rescue Mission continues.
Also recently, Plae partnered with Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy (PPMD), an organization that fights Muscular Dystrophy through research, care, and support at the community level. You are required to use code GIVE215 at the checkout section, and 10% of the amount that you pay will go towards the PPMD cause. The code, just like many others, does not expire.
Now you know why Plae is a much-loved shoe company. They continue planting smiles in the faces of many people around the world. You too can also be part of the program by applying for your own (community-based) charity cause or supporting other Plae ambassadors in their causes.
