On Dec. 1, Horny Toad kicked off a unique campaign dubbed Spread the Warmth with the altruistic goal of helping outfit people in need with warm clothes. What is most unique about the program is the element of trust.

Working with its retail base, and spreading the word virally and via its own website, the company is offering customers a 30-percent discount off all Horny Toad apparel purchased online or at a dealer from Dec. 1-31. All the company is asking of participating customers is to donate some of their used clothing to a local homeless shelter, Goodwill or the Salvation Army. No proof of a donation is required other than the customer's word.

But Horny Toad is doing more than just spreading the cheer among customers and those in need this December. It is also offering its dealers who support the Spread the Warmth campaign a little something as well to offset the margin hit they incur by giving customers a 30-percent discount.

For all unpaid invoices -- no matter how old -- Horny Toad will give its dealers a 10-percent discount as long as they are paid by Dec. 31, 2008. In addition, for all re-orders made in December, a retailer will receive 30-percent off the invoice on the spot. Better yet, if they pay that same invoice by the end of the month, the company will knock an additional 10-percent off the bill, for a total possible discount of 40 percent.

Dealers just need to let their Horny Toad rep or dealer services rep know that they wish to participate in the program to be eligible for the discounts.
