Briggs & Riley Rolls Out National Retailer “A Case for Giving” Event

Briggs & Riley makes some of the best luggage available. I’ve used many of their products over the years traveling all over the world, and they provide some of the best designed, highest quality products in the business.  (I also love Tumi, but comparable models are often as much as twice the cost of Briggs & Riley. And while Briggs & Riley offers a lifetime warranty, Tumi no longer does.)

Briggs & Riley has just announced a great promotion that help over 100 charities as well. Roll into a luggage store with one bag, and roll out with another thanks to the two-week-long charity luggage trade-in event starting February 11, 2016 at participating specialty retailers in the U.S and Canada.

Briggs & Riley’s “A Case for Giving” is working with their retail partners to get your gently used rolling bag to someone in immediate need in local communities around the country.  “A Case for Giving” salutes more than 100 charity partners of Briggs & Riley’s retailers including Ronald McDonald House Charities, Treehouse for Kids, Make A Wish, Goodwill and local women’s shelters, men’s homes and coalitions for the homeless.  Briggs & Riley is known for innovation, dependable durability, and service that have earned them a fanatical and loyal customer base of frequent travelers who demand bags that perform.

“We are very pleased to re-introduce ‘A Case for Giving’ for its second year and we expect to be even more successful and to exceed the 2,000 bags collected for the needy last year during our first luggage trade-in program,” said Briggs & Riley CEO, Richard Krulik. “The idea was sparked by conversations with foster care leaders who made me realize what a wonderful added purpose our products can have,” Krulik continued.  “We’ve put our support behind making sure that those in need can transport their belongings securely, whether it be a child leaving foster care, a woman getting out of a shelter or a family who must travel for medical treatment,” Krulik stated.

Think about a gently used rolling bag you own.  It might have even been sitting for years gathering dust in a closet.  Bring your used bag into a participating luggage store nearby between February 11 and February 29, 2016. Receive $100 credit on a new Briggs & Riley bag if you donate a used Briggs & Riley bag and a $50 credit on a new Briggs & Riley bag if you donate a used bag from another brand.
Leave your used bag behind knowing it will be a joy to someone who needs it.
