Blue Tiger donates $80K-plus to St. Christopher

Updated Oct 10, 2018

The Blue Tiger company issued a check for $84,050 to the nonprofit St. Christopher Truckers Development and Relief Fund. The amount was the result of Blue Tiger’s special edition SCF wireless headsets, sold in conjunction with TravelCenters of America, which yielded $10 of each sale to benefit semi-truck drivers and their families supported by the nonprofit.

More than 8,000 of the St. Christopher Fund Blue Elite headsets were sold last year. Features include up to 34 hours of talk time, 600 hours of standby time, high-performing noise cancellation, a high-performance speaker, Bluetooth 4.0 and a flexible headband.

Blue Tiger owner and President Chantal Saah presented the check to SCF at the 2018 Great American Trucking Show. “Our company has provided truck drivers with the highest quality consumer electronic products on the market for nearly a decade,” said Saah. “We know full well it’s our customers’ continued patronage that puts food on the tables and roofs over the heads of the families of all Blue Tiger employees, which is why donating to St. Christopher Fund, a nonprofit that takes care of our customers’ families when they need help, is always an easy decision for us.”

This isn’t the first time Blue Tiger donated to SCF. In Oct. 2016, Blue Tiger and TA committed to donating $5 each for the sale of each branded headset, for a total donation of $105,000 to SCF, the first time Blue Tiger sold the specially branded headsets.

“What may seem like a small fraction of a company’s annual budget can actually help hundreds of truck drivers and their families through hard times caused by illness or injury,” said SCF Executive Director Dr. Donna Kennedy. “For companies affiliated with the trucking industry, it means even more than that. Donating to St. Christopher Fund tells your employees that you are there for them beyond the hours they are behind the wheel.”
