Small Business Saturday!

November 24, 2012 is a day dedicated towards showing our support for small business nationwide.  Small Businesses create more jobs and opportunities than any other business in the nation.

With the support of American Express, last year over one hundred million people came together and dedicated their efforts shopping “small.”

 National Pen recognizes that the majority of our customers are in fact small businesses.  Whether you need promotional tools, items for giveaways, or products to highlight your small business, let us serve you with all your needs!  Come visit us @National Pen

Do Your Part, Raise Awareness!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Breast Cancer has touched and afflicted the lives of many, and it is during this month that we all should take time to acknowledge this devastating disease.  Whether you are a fighter, survivor, or somebody that has been touched by the disease, we should all take part in raising awareness to promote hope, further inform those around us, and seek advancement in medicine for a cure.

How can one become involved?  There are many ways this October to become involved in the fight against Breast Cancer.  Whether through charitable acts, joining a fundraiser, or simply donning the pink ribbon to show your support, anyone has the power to raise awareness.  The most important factor in becoming involved with the cause is to show your support with kindness of heart and dedication.  You can find further information about National Breast Cancer Month at the National Breast Cancer Foundation: (http://www.nationalbreastcancer.org/breast-cancer-awareness-month?gclid=CPejhoy71rICFad7QgodgEwAJA).  The website gives in-depth information about what the month entails and highlights possible ways to raise awareness and get involved.

National Pen and Breast Cancer Awareness!  We at National Pen extend our thoughts and respect to all of those who have been touched by this dreaded disease.  During this month, National Pen is dedicated towards informing those who follow us about the importance and significance of spreading awareness.  We are taking a first-hand approach through the products we offer (Breast Cancer Inspired!) and our involvement with those who share in our business activities.  Our Breast Cancer inspired products allow you, your business, consumers, and others to show support through actively raising awareness.  Help combat this disease and raise awareness through our products!

‘Tis the Season for Giving

Holiday celebrations are all about making others feel good, and what feels better than knowing you have helped someone in need? A great way to bring your employees together during the holidays is through charitable giving. Organize your team to sponsor a local family that cannot afford gifts this year, or collect toys to donate to a children’s center.

We try to support those less fortunate throughout the year, and always enjoy seeing photos and reading stories about the happy recipients (like those you see below).

If you add a giving element to your holiday celebration, we’re sure you’ll feel the same way!

“Well, our trip to Kenya was a delightful success! Many of the pens and pencils went to St. Gerald Children’s Centre, Nyeri, Kenya. The 120 children were very happy to get them. I wish it was possible to get a picture of kids with pencils where the joy was still in their faces…Thanks again for the pens and pencils, and for the shipping!”
