PLG has a Heart for Moms and Babies

Company supports Compassion Survival programs in Ecuador, Colombia, Haiti and Nicaragua.

PLG is partnering with Compassion in support of Compassion Survival which provides mothers with quality prenatal care, regular home visits, nutritious food and birth assistance. Once the babies are born, mothers also receive training to help the children reach important, early development milestones.

“We fund Survival sites in Ecuador, Colombia and Haiti and have most recently added one in Nicaragua,” says company founder and CEO Gary Monds. “The regular reporting we receive from Compassion lets us and our associates know that we are having a real impact in people’s lives. Compassion operates with a high degree of integrity and we are seeing first-hand their success in helping children and people in need.”

About This Partnership

PLG is a family-owned, leading online retailer of fashion accessories with two webstores, BeltOutlet and CrookhornDavis. The business began in Naperville, Illinois in 1997 as a small business selling in several Midwest flea markets. Initial success on EBay led the family to open its own online presence,, which now sells men’s and women’s accessories in the United States and around the world. “As a company, our core purpose is to enrich the lives of our customers, co-workers and the global community through service, charitable giving and honoring God,” says Gary Monds, founder and CEO of PLG. “Stated even more concisely, our mission is ‘We Sell to Help’”.

PLG funds Compassion Survival programs as they are launched in Central and Latin America. Through their loving support, mothers and their babies receive essential resources critical for survival that also demonstrate God’s love for them and their families in a practical and powerful way.

PLG has helped launch five Compassion Survival programs serving more than 500 babies and caregivers. The partnership also has filled a desire by founder and CEO Gary Monds to have an impact on those in need. “The more you learn about Compassion’s leaders, staff and programs, the more you will see that Compassion is a great investment in making a real difference in the lives of children and families around the world and in God’s kingdom,” says Monds.
