A Letterkenny-based father and son team who seized a smart business opportunity during Covid-19 have pledged to share a portion of their profits with charity.
John D. and his son John F. Logue, based at Drumany, set up LOGÜ at the beginning of the Covid-19 lockdown.
The company sells stylish and sustainable wooden desks for working from home. The sleek design and easy assembly have based the products popular in recent months as workers made the move from the kitchen table to a new home office.
The Logues are launching a new initiative to donate 10% of profits from their 2020 corporate sales to a charity partner of each participating company’s choosing.
One half of the LOGÜ duo, John F. Logue, is the former CEO of Irish children’s charity Suas. He recognised the need to support local charities during this challenging time: “Irish charities hugely rely on corporate fundraising like fun runs, marathons and events. With a lot of staff working from home, those fundraising activities aren’t happening. This means Irish charities lose out on thousands of Euro in vital funding. We’d like to support those charities and companies by offering an alternative means of employee fundraising.”
How companies can get involved in DESK + DONATE and support their charity partner:
● Companies signing up for the DESK + DONATE programme will be asked to nominate a charity partner. They will then be given a unique company code for employees to use on the LOGÜ website (www.logudesign.com).
● When an employee buys a desk from LOGÜ and uses their company code, 10% of the profits from that sale will be donated to their company’s designated charity partner.
● Companies can sign up for the programme on www.logudesign.com.
