One click can make a difference

You’re never too busy to take the time to give – even during the holiday season.

When you’re shopping online with Gap, Banana Republic, Old Navy, Athleta and Piperlime now through December 20, you have the chance to give back to the Boys &Girls of America. If you don’t need your order by Christmas Eve and select the free 7-9 day free shipping option, Gap Inc. will donate $1 to the organization to help kids in need.

The Boys & Girls Club has been an important community partner for Gap Inc. since the beginning. Our founder, Don Fisher, took the time to volunteer and support the kids of theorganization, even as the Gap grew from one store to a global, multi-brand organization.

“I can’t tell you exactly what it was about at-risk youth that motivated Don but it was certainly more than just providing them a safe place to go after school,” said Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco president Rob Connolly. “Don understood ‘value’, we all know that, but I love the fact that he saw significant value in children who others were very willing to write off and, too, happy to forget.”

So this season, in thetradition of Don’s vision and Gap Inc’s commitment to “Do more”, as you cross off your “to do” list, take a little time to give – with one click.

Banana Republic says... holiday procrastinators, rejoice!

We’re in the final shopping stretch this holiday season – that last couple of weeks of December where the panic sets in, and you know you won’t be able to get everything done without a real-life Santa, and a sleigh that can sub for miracle shipping.

Banana Republic wants to help, with its first-ever Procrastinators Event.

The brand is catering to last-minute shoppers this season, offering six days of perks – from free taxi rides to same-day delivery, to extra helping hands (think personal shopping assistant… or elves).

Here are details of the program, which runs Dec. 17-22:

Extra Help: Customers at all U.S. stores will get a $30 credit from TASKRABBIT to help with any last-minute to-dos – holiday party cleaning help, peppermint hot chocolate runs, hanging Christmas tree lights, picking up your office’s Secret Santa gift, etc.

Free Rides: Shoppers can avoid packed parking lots and lugging shopping bags on public transportation by catching a free ride (up to $20) with CURB to or from Banana Republic stores across the country.

Free Same-Day Delivery: Customers who shop on bananarepublic.com and reserve gifts through Reserve In Store will receive an email from which they can choose to have those items shipped that same day for free through DELIV.  This is available in San Francisco, Palo Alto, Los Angeles, Chicago, New Jersey, Washington D.C., Houston and Seattle.

Free Shipping and Gift Wrap: Shoppers in San Francisco, New York and Miami will get a $25 credit at the register that can be used to ship their gifts through SHYP. Customers who visit the Banana Republic Grant Avenue store in San Francisco, Soho store in New York and Aventura Mall in Miami, can immediately hand over their gifts to Shyp ambassadors to be gift wrapped with Brit+Co designed wrapping paper and shipped off to loved ones anywhere in the world.

Gap Hosts North America Coat Drive

This season, when you give a coat, you can get a coat (or a shirt, or sweater, or hat, or other Gap must-have item) for a discount – and support your local Boys and Girls Club.

Through Monday, December 15, all North America Gap locations will be participating in a coat drive in partnership with the Boys and Girls Club of America. Customers can bring in and donate a new or gently used adult or kids’ winter coat and will receive $10 off of their entire purchase that day.

In addition to accepting coat donations, customers can donate any monetary amount to Boys and Girls Clubhouse and also receive $10 off their purchase. Customers don’t need to make a purchase to donate.

Each store has been paired with a local clubhouse, and all of the proceeds will go to that local Boys and Girls Clubhouse.

Which coat will you donate for your discount?

Ethisphere recognizes Gap Inc.’s minimum wage raise

Number 5 out of 100.

That’s the ranking Ethisphere gave Gap Inc. CEO Glenn Murphy on its 2014 list of 100 Most Influential in Business Ethics, based on the company’s decision to raise the minimum wage for its U.S. employees.

The organization, dedicated to defining and advancing the standards in ethical business practices, lauded Murphy for his efforts in leading the company to increase the minimum wage for U.S. employees to $9 this year and $10 in 2015. The move was considered so bold, President Barack Obama showed his support with a surprise shopping trip to Gap earlier this year.  

“The people in our company who engage directly with our customers carry an incredible responsibility. Our success is a result of their hard work, love of fashion and commitment,” said Murphy at the time of the announcement. “We hope this decision provides them with some additional support as they grow their careers with Gap Inc.”
