Alley Cat - Buy One, Give One #1
Part of our mission at É Nóis Clothing is to make sure Jiu Jitsu is available for everyone, regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation and/or social economic status. That's a big mission, but by teaming up with other organizations with similar goals we know we can make a real difference.
Coinciding with everything we stand for are our Buy One, Give One campaigns, during which for every gi sold, we donate a gi or rashguard to the campaign's respective children.
ALLEY CAT FITNESS FOUNDATION & OUR PARTNERSHIP
Our first non-profit partner was Alley Cat Fitness Foundation out of Panama City, Panama. Alley Cat is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing the art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu to children in the poorest parts of Panama City. The program is free, running completely off the donations and dues of the gym’s few paying members.
After having completed our first Buy One, Give One campaign, we were able to supply Alley Cat with nearly 50 children’s gis!
In addition, Alley Cat has a superb teens program and are a leading MMA program in Latin America. Check out this article on the gym, some of its most famous fighters and the founders: Fightland Article On Alley Cat
