This year’s Human Rights Day on December 10th will see most of the world celebrating the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, leading up to its 75th anniversary in 2023. This is a fundamentally important document to mankind, originated by the United Nations in 1948, and which details a broad range of human rights and freedoms to which everyone around the world is entitled, wherever they are. It guarantees these rights with no distinction due to nationality, place of residence, gender, ethnic origin, religion, language or any other status. Enshrined within the UDHR are the very tenets that make us a civilized race.
The Declaration is the most translated document in the world but how it plays out in real world scenarios is often open to debate. Although it has become globally recognized and serves as the foundation for an expanding system of protection, there are definitely countries and regimes which do not subscribe to the optimistic ideal – or those who do, but are being pushed towards stripping those rights down or even away.
As the planet shifts on its axis due to the aftermath of the pandemic, plus the insecurities in the financial markets and in the shifting socio-political make-up of the world, it’s safe to say that human rights have been somewhat under attack. The year-long campaign, beginning with Human Rights Day on December 10th, will go some way to highlighting the issues, and to keeping attention focused on the importance of the UDHR.
How does this affect you and your business? It’s very simple, really. Human Rights Day is the perfect time to show your socially responsible credentials and that you are engaged with the issues which concern much of mankind, that you are an active participant in the betterment of the world and a lot of people everywhere. You can use customized products featuring your logo and message to align yourself with human rights causes you believe in and perhaps even support in some way. Here at EverythingBranded we have a great stock of items which can be used to positively promote your business on Human Rights Day as well as further awareness of the important human concepts being highlighted on it.
5 Great Custom Items for Human Rights Day
One of the smartest ways to repeat a promotional message over a considerable length of time is to use customized mugs. Everyone likes to drink a coffee at least once a day, whether at home or in the workplace, and if you can provide a mug which is as appealing as it is practical then you’re onto a brand awareness win. These Cappuccino / Soup Mugs are a great shape and size to catch the eye, meaning that any logo and message printed on them will be instantly seen and remembered.
Custom sweaters and custom t-shirts are other very smart ways to rinse everything you can out of your promotional efforts, as they’re worn regularly and so seen often too. When emblazoned with your logo and / or with appropriate messaging related to your support of human rights causes, these Botannical Dye T-Shirts offer a durable and effective way to reach people. T-shirts are just about the most popular item of clothing across the planet.
Custom pens are another highly effective way to position your logo and your message into your audience’s daily lives. Everyone needs a pen at some point during each day, and so quite often carry one with them. If that can be your pen, then each time they write they are going to notice your brand and your alignment with human rights causes, and so they’ll remember you. These Plastic Pens are great for giveaways or even for use as small sale items – perhaps in human rights fundraising drives.
Notebooks are a great accompaniment to pens, if you’re looking to add a little something extra into the gifting, without going ‘over the top’. These Hardcover Notebooks with Elastic Band are smart and durable, hardwearing enough to be handled over and over. There’s plenty of ‘real estate’ on the front of these custom notebooks for you to brand up with your business or organization logo, and / or with some sort of human rights message.
