Hagerty Shop is Giving Back, Saving Lives and Providing Scholarships
The world leader in classic car insurance, Hagerty, has put together a few programs that really aim to save infant lives and provide driver education scholarships for the future drivers of tomorrow.
McKeel Hagerty, the CEO of Hagerty, has created partnerships with non-profits and education centers to provide car seats for low-income families throughout the U.S. and also award proceeds for scholarships to help fund scholarships for driver’s education.
Proceeds come from the sale of classic car apparel and accessories on their website The Shop by Hagerty. The Shop was created for people who love cars. It offers a collection of products that promotes the collector car lifestyle. Enthusiasts and supporters can purchase Hagerty designed clothing, accessories and items for the home and garage. The best part about it all is 100% of the proceeds go to the non-profits and scholarships.
The non-profit partnership they have created is with Baby2Baby, which works to provide thousands of car seats annually to low-income children. Hagerty had a promotion over the holidays to start generating proceeds through the sale of their ugly Christmas sweater.
“Everything we [Hagerty] do is centered around the love of driving,” said McKeel. “Part of this is safe driving. I have three daughters, and they were all lucky enough to have car seats to keep them safe. No child should be injured or killed because their parent didn’t have access to the same protection my kids had.”
Mr. Hagerty continued the conversation by stating “Car seats are one of the many essential items that Baby2Baby distributes to families in need,”. He also noted that motor vehicle crashes are the No. 1 cause of death among children under the age of 15 years of age in the United States.
The Baby2Baby National Network has members in more than 20 cities, including Midwestern sites in Illinois and Ohio. There is no end date set for the fundraising partnership, and all sales go toward the effort. The company funded more than $200,000 worth of scholarships and equipment in 2017 alone.
