FORT COLLINS, CO -- (Marketwire) -- 10/01/12 -- Local non-profit organization, Wearitable, is kick starting their 501(c)3 status and the debut of its online store by receiving legal advice and a Fort Collins sales tax license. Wearitable sells customized clothing and 100% of the profits go to benefit a non-profit organization of the buyer's choice. This means that socially-conscious consumers can soon start supporting Wearitable's and other national and local non-profit's causes.
Wearitable is expediting the process to become a non-profit organization by enlisting the help of a lawyer. Gaining 501(c)3 status is crucial for any aspiring non-profit organization. Only donations that are made to a 501(c)3 can be written off in tax deductions. However, this would not be true of Wearitable's regular retail store, as goods would be exchanged.
The clothing retailer and charitable donations provider makes sure that none of its operating costs are met with buyer money. Wearitable is 100% volunteer powered and relies on the concept of "socially conscious consumerism." This concept means that consumers should take accountability for where their money is going during a purchase. A purchase is a vote of confidence by the consumer.
Gregor Myhren, owner of Wearitble, says, "I have started the process to become a non-profit corporation and I have my Fort Collins sales tax license. I am also planning to kick start Wearitable after October 13. We are excited about the changes coming our way, and hope to get the shopping cart up very soon."
Wearitable is a start-up non-profit organization located in Fort Collins, Colorado, although they promote socially conscious consumerism across the whole country with their national shipping plans.
