Free Country, a leading brand headquartered in New York City, offers a wide range of fashionable yet functional everyday outerwear, constructed from high-performance fabrics. Founded in 1990 by CEO Ira Schwartz, after breaking away from his family’s fur business (the FurVault, Inc. and he is also Andrew Marc’s brother), Free Country has found success by focusing on a combination of quality, valued apparel which is attractive to today’s consumer.
As a company that embodies their customers’ everyday lifestyle, Free Country is launching a national campaign titled the, Everyday Hero, where they want to find out Who is Your Everyday Hero? Each month, Free Country will select a monthly winner, deciding which Everyday Hero story is the most compelling. Monthly Everyday Hero winners and the respective submitter will receive a prize, leading up to the grand prize. Free Country will select a grand prize winner to receive a cash prize as well as a donation to the charity of their choice.
