MISSISSAUGA, ON, Feb. 22 /CNW/ - The Bargain! Shop is looking forward to
another successful Paper Egg Campaign with Easter Seals Canada.
"We are thrilled to have The Bargain! Shop return as a key partner in our
eighth annual Easter Seals Paper Egg campaign," says Max Beck, CEO of Easter
Seals Canada. "The Bargain! Shop made its campaign debut last year, becoming
the top selling National Sponsor with an astonishing $77,800 raised for Easter
Seals programs and services across the country. This success is a testament to
the community spirit of The Bargain! Shop's employees and customers."
Between February 25th and March 23rd 2008, Bargain! Shop customers can
purchase a vibrantly coloured Paper Egg for a $2 donation at any store
location across Canada. Purchasers can write their name on an egg, which store
staff will then display prominently in the store. All money donated will go
towards a number of Easter Seals services that include the widely known Easter
Seals camp program.
"At The Bargain! Shop the excitement is building around our 2008 Paper
Egg campaign," says Kim Vogel, Chair of TB!S Cares of The Bargain! Shop. "We
feel very confident we can build on last year's success to meet our goal this
year of raising $100,000 to support children with disabilities."
Easter Seals Canada is dedicated to serving children, youth and adults
with physical disabilities. Almost 40,000 Canadians and their families
annually access programs and services provided by Easter Seal organizations
across Canada. Easter Seals leads the way in building an inclusive society,
triggering transformational change for people with disabilities.
The Bargain! Shop has 183 stores across Canada and is one of Canada's
fastest growing retail chains, having added 18 locations in 2007 and with
plans to add another 17 stores in 2008. TB!S sells many brand-name products
