BowTie Cause

If you wanna be somebody, you gotta rock the BowTie!

Look who visited BowTie Cause  Headquarters yesterday!  Old Skool Cafe

Old Skool Café (OSC) is a faith- based, violence prevention program, providing jobs and training to youth, (with an emphasis on at-risk, urban youth) ages 16-22, at our 1940’s styled supper club. OSC confronts the epidemic of violence by providing at- risk and previously incarcerated and foster care youth with a variety of career opportunities that would normally not be afforded them.

A Sweet BowTie Deal

Valentine’s Day is drawing near and if you’re spending the day with a special someone, then you might also wonder what to get that someone…

There is the fail-safe chocolate or cologne.  Roses or a candlelit dinner. 

But for a moment, consider a gift that continues to pay the love forward.

The Holiday Pause

'Twas a week before Christmas

And all through the land

Everyone was scurrying 

To find a gift that is grand.

The streets have their glitter

Of snow and slick ice.

The parties were in full swing

The cider had its spike. 

There were no better time

To pause and remember

The impact we’ve made 

Since we saw last December.

BowTie Partners on #GivingTuesday

What is #GivingTuesday?

#GivingTuesday™ is a campaign to create a national day of giving at the start of the annual holiday season. It celebrates and encourages charitable activities that support nonprofit organizations.

On Tuesday December 3, 2013, global charities, families, businesses, community centers, students and more will come together to create #GivingTuesday.  It is a way for your family, your community, your company or your organization to come together to give something more. 

 This year, one of our BowTie Partners is taking advantage of this incredible day!

Thank you Armed Forces


“Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgement that
something else is more important than fear.”

In 2001, The Armed Forces Foundation (AFF) was founded by two Members of Congress, Duncan Hunter, Sr. and Jim Saxton.

When a wounded warrior arrives at the hospital, the AFF steps in to assist the family in traveling to his or her side and provides lodging while their loved one recovers. Financial assistance is also granted, supplementing income and keeping families in their homes. Committed to benefiting the troops and their families, AFF gives 96% of everything they take in to support their programs.

As they continue to take care of the immediate needs of service members and their families, they also need continued support to fulfill their mantra…

"SERVING THOSE WHO SERVE."

Signature BowTies were created for the specific branches of the Armed Forces and each design was inspired with the idea that all military members and their families are supported… regardless of rank.

Each military branch and their respective “colors” are represented and incorporate the highest and lowest ranks.

In essence, when you rock an AFF BowTie, you are supporting a mantra, a mission, and the United States Military.

November 11th - November 17th, BowTie Cause is offering 15% off on all Armed Forces Foundation BowTies sold.  Just enter in the code VETERAN15 to receive the discount.

BowTie Cause salutes and honors our past and present Troops for your unending Courage.
