We were saddened by the recent natural disasters taking place throughout the Caribbean and Gulf Coast. In the words of our founder, Tom Chappell, "All of us at Ramblers Way have been deeply moved by the devastation caused by hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria. As the people affected by the storms begin to rebuild their lives, we want them to know we're with them every step of the way, so we're giving them some of what we do best – clothing. We hope it helps people start to get back on their feet."
We’re donating nearly 5,000 items to the survivors of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, two of the largest hurricanes to ever hit the U.S. shores, as well as Hurricane Maria. The items include all season shirts for women and men, woven shirts for men and women, and men's long underwear. The clothing will be distributed through a partnership with Good360, a global leader in product philanthropy and purposeful giving.

Good360 works with national recovery agencies as well as local recovery groups and nonprofits to determine exactly what families and individuals need, ensuring that our giving efforts are both effective and efficient. With a mission to transform lives by providing hope, dignity and a sense of renewed possibility to individuals, families and communities impacted by disasters or other challenging life circumstances, the organization has distributed more than $9 billion in donated goods around the world, helping its network of more than 57,000 prequalified nonprofits strengthen communities and improve the lives of millions.
"Good360 takes a long-term view of disaster recovery and our core focus is to ensure that we get the right goods to the right people at the right time throughout all stages of a disaster," said Richard Barney, EVP of Partnerships for Good360. "Our partnerships with on-the-ground nonprofits will guarantee that Ramblers Way's donated goods are distributed where they are needed most with a high level of efficacy and efficiency."
