As the country grappled with the pandemic this year, many Americans have faced unexpected financial challenges coupled with historically-high levels of unemployment. Together, Sezzle and Ministry of Supply will gift thousands of kits to Americans as they prepare for upcoming job interviews, pursue fresh starts, or simply need new, quality clothing. To participate, people need only complete a short questionnaire here.
“At the start of the pandemic, we knew we needed to step up for our community in any way we could. We designed and donated 70,000 masks and gave away $25,000 of clothing for interviews,” said Ministry of Supply Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer Aman Advani. “But we wanted to do more. By partnering with Sezzle, we’re scaling that effort tenfold. We’re on a mission to use science to make clothing that supports you in your life’s work, and we hope Starter Kits can help during this particularly challenging time.”
“As a Public Benefit Corporation, Sezzle is committed to giving and supporting communities in need,” said Veronica Katz, Sezzle Chief Revenue Officer. “Resource-strapped Americans who need to budget and buy responsibly this holiday can use Sezzle to buy now and pay later with four easy, interest-free installments, at Ministry of Supply as well as at over 20,000 other stores.”
“We’re delighted to help underwrite this campaign with purpose; it’s fully in line with our mission of giving back and empowering the next generation,” added Katz.
