Lug is proud of the social investment we make in the communities through our LUG CARES program. Through this program we have assisted charitable and non-profit organizations reach new heights with their fundraising efforts.
Lug has chosen to focus its donations to support children’s charities, concentrating on children’s health and education initiatives in communities worldwide. Applications from schools will not be accepted. Through our support, we aim to give kids a healthier, happier future.
Although we would like to support every worthwhile cause, due to the volume of applications and limited budgets, it is not possible to fulfill every request. Our Lug Cares committee will review each request and notification will be provided if we are able to support your request.
Every child dreams of what they can become and of a life filled with promise. But a child living in poverty may never realize that dream if they are unable to attend school. Providing children with the necessary tools, like backpacks, help them go to school and get an education.
World Vision Canada is partnering with Lug, who make travel bags, accessories and suitcases, to help children access education. For the first 800 purchases, Lug will donate a backpack to a child in need when you use the promo code LUGCARES19 until August 16th, 2019. You will also receive 15% off your purchase at check out.
Lug has generously donated almost 18,000 backpacks World Vision Canada since the partnership began in 2018. This year over 1200 backpacks have supported education programs in Malawi and have been sent to children in El Salvador, Zimbabwe, and Burundi. We need your help to reach more children and give them the opportunity to live out their hopes and dreams.
“I am very grateful to World Vision for the school bags they have given us today. Before receiving the bag, I could always lose my notebooks and pencils at school, now that I have a school bag, I will no longer lose my books and writing materials.” “The school bags will also help to motivate me and my fellow learners to work very hard and not miss classes.”
- Maggie, 8-year-old in grade 3
Lug is a sponsor of this annual charity golf tournament that involves over 20 elite celebrities, including stars from the world of sports and entertainment. Proceeds from the event benefit The Children’s Aid Foundation, which is committed to funding programs that improve the lives of abused, neglected and at risk children and youth.
As an official sponsor of the ARF Golf Classic, Lug® provides a wide array of custom bags and accessories for raffle. Lug® also donates custom weekender bags for all golfers and travel packs signed by Andy Roddick and Brooklyn Decker to auction off with all proceeds going to improve the lives of underprivileged children.
In 2014, Lug was a founding sponsor for TWIINS, an event designed to raise funds for the establishment of the Hull-Ellis Concussion and Research Clinic at the Toronto Rehabilitation Institute. Since its opening in 2015, the clinic continues to make significant advances in the understanding of cognitive disorders, and the treatment of concussion. In June 2017, Lug was once again pleased to support the inaugural Toronto Rehab Golf Classic which directed its proceeds to this clinic. The funds are critically important to further study cognitive disorders, and develop a best practice model of care that others can emulate across the province, country and globally.
