A LETTER FROM THE OWNER:
I am an active law enforcement officer in Louisville, Kentucky, and have had to endure the pain of the loss of several friends and colleagues to line-of-duty death over my 26 years of involvement in the law enforcement community. No words can relieve the pain that is felt by the people who loved these fallen heroes - a loss I can only describe as "sorrow upon sorrow". The loss of a hero is not only felt by their friends and family, but also by their agency, their community and their nation.
Upon taking ownership of Gman Emblem in August 2018, I decided that I would use my position as owner of this company to give back to the men and women who protect us daily. Some of our initiatives have included providing products to various police support foundations as donations, assisting individual families undergoing hardship, and providing materials to local departments on dealing with the stress of the job. Upon losing one of our own officers in December 2018, I saw a unique opportunity to expand our philanthropy. I have decided that beginning in January 2019, Gman Emblem will provide any of our products to agencies that are using them to commemorate their fallen hero at a price below our cost. This includes embroidered patches, PVC patches, challenge coins, lapel pins, keychains, silicone bracelets, metal bracelets and/or any other items that Gman Emblem produces. We have labeled this program the Gman Emblem Fallen Hero Program.
This is not a gimmick. The items provided are of the same quality as those we sell to our customers, and each product will receive the same attention to detail, artwork assistance, and quality control that we have built this company on over the past 20 years. I will personally work with representatives of the agency that has suffered the loss to create a custom design that truly honors the sacrifice of their fallen hero. Our products will be made of the highest quality materials, and I promise we will never make a single penny on the back of a fallen hero.
In order to participate, there are only four rules:
1) The fallen hero must have been performing work duties when the death occurred and the death must be classified as a line-of-duty death.
2) The products we provide must be ordered directly by the affected agency or a benevolent association acting on behalf of the members of that agency, such as an FOP or IAFF chapter.
3) Family members of the fallen must be consulted on the design and must be a part of the process, giving final approval of any design before we proceed.
4) If the items are sold at a price above the price provided by Gman Emblem, 100% of the profits from these sales must be donated to the family of the fallen hero either directly or through a tax-exempt entity.
If interested in participating in the Gman Emblem Fallen Hero Program, please send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 502-492-9715.
