The primary mission of Good Threads is two-fold: (1) to employ the parents of the children at the Joan Rose Foundation and (2) to provide the Joan Rose Foundation with an additional source of income. Good Threads donates at least 2% of its annual revenue to the Joan Rose Foundation and 10% of its profits to the Haitian stitchers who make our products.
Our sister nonprofit, the Joan Rose Foundation, was founded by David Palmer, who is also one of the principal founders and president of Good Threads.
In addition to belts, keychains, and dog collars, we also stitch Bauble Stockings. Based on a family tradition, these are beautiful, hand-stitched miniature stockings meant to contain a clue to the final gift of Christmas.
Good Threads is a certified B-Corp. B-Corps, aka Benefit Corporations, are corporations which have made doing good and giving back part of their mission. To become a B-Corp, Good Threads had to pass an extensive assessment regarding its structure, policies, financials, operating agreement and actions.
