NEWTOWN, Conn. — In a show of support for responsible gun ownership, CrossBreed Holsters provides its customers the opportunity to donate to the nation’s most influential firearm safety education program, Project ChildSafe®, through its online shopping portal.
The checkout-donation initiative has been a big success, with customers generously giving back to their community by supporting Project ChildSafe, a program of the National Shooting Sports Foundation® (NSSF®).
“Encouraging responsible gun handling and storage is very important to our company,” said Carolyn Craighead, CEO of CrossBreed Holsters. “The work NSSF is doing through Project ChildSafe to help prevent firearm accidents, thefts and misuse couldn’t be more valuable to our industry. We began giving our customers this online donation option more than a year ago, and the level of support they have shown has been extraordinary. We encourage all businesses to join us in supporting the NSSF and help raise the next generation of shooters to be safe and responsible firearm owners.”
CrossBreed Holsters, founded in 2005 by the late Mark Craighead, gained national recognition as a leading manufacturer of innovative, functional concealment holsters.
“We salute CrossBreed Holsters for its leadership in providing this donation opportunity, and we thank their customers for supporting our firearm safety efforts, which we know are saving lives,” said NSSF President and CEO Joe Bartozzi. “We encourage all outdoor sporting retail businesses that have an online shopping platform to consider adding a similar donation option to their checkout screen.”
Founded in 1999 by NSSF (and originally known as Project HomeSafe), Project ChildSafe is a firearm industry program that provides firearm safety education for adults and children, along with free gun-locking devices, in every state and the U.S. territories through more than 15,000 program partners.
