Niall and Children’s Mercy are “All In” for Kansas City’s Children Kansas City, MO — October 19, 2016 — Niall, the Kansas City based luxury timepiece manufacturer, recently opened its first retail space on the Country Club Plaza. In addition to its commitment to American manufacturing and Kansas City innovation, Niall is also making a pledge to the children of Kansas City. Beginning this week, 10% of the proceeds from each “KC Blue” wall clock will be donated to Children’s Mercy.
Located on the Country Club Plaza at 612 West 48th Street between Zocalo and Coveted Home, the Niall store features a variety of products, including the iconic “KC Blue” wall clock. Kansas City has deep philanthropic roots and Niall Founder and CEO, Michael Wilson, wants to honor Kansas City’s heritage of giving.
“Children’s Mercy is a Kansas City institution whose cutting edge and innovative advances in medicine benefit children in Kansas City and beyond. The hospital’s mission embodies the Niall philosophy of being ‘All In,’” said Wilson. “Children’s Mercy and Niall are both deeply committed to being ‘All In’ for Kansas City.”
Niall’s American made clocks can be seen on the walls of Kansas City’s Hotel Sorella, Kauffman Stadium, and many more Kansas City landmarks. The “KC Blue” clock features a royal blue dial with “Kansas City” printed above the sixth hour. Clocks can also be customized with company logos and colors.
“Children’s Mercy is so very grateful to have the support of Niall, a company that stands for quality and Kansas City pride,” said Jenea Oliver, PhD, Vice President of Philanthropy at Children’s Mercy. “Kansas City’s only children’s hospital for nearly 120 years, Children’s Mercy cares for all children who come through our doors, regardless of a family’s ability to pay. Generous community support allows us to fulfill that mission. Partnering with a caring company like Niall, we can continue to advance pediatric health care to help children in our community, in our region and around the world. Thank you, Niall. Your pledge to the children of Kansas City and beyond is truly the gift of ‘time’ in many ways for many families.”
Niall will be installing clocks at Children’s Mercy and throughout the Kansas City community. The “KC Blue” clocks are available for purchase in the Niall store and online. Niall also offers a suite of American-made products and will be releasing a new carbon fiber edition of the GMT and Niall One watches in the next month.
