A Delicious Campaign Benefiting the Quebec Breakfast Club

    MONTREAL, Nov. 16 /CNW Telbec/ - In this third year of a fruitful
partnership, the Quebec Breakfast Club and the National Bank have cooked up a
juicy promotion: two delicious GOUASH fruit spreads, featuring special
flavours exclusive to this campaign, will be available in all National Bank
branches throughout Quebec, from November 19 to December 29, 2007.
    Sold in original double-tube packaging, these delicious cherry and
raspberry GOUASH spreads resemble funky tubes of paint and are as tasty as
they are good for you.
    Produced locally by La Tomate and created exclusively for the Quebec
Breakfast Club, GOUASH has no artificial colours or preservatives, making it
the perfect healthy snack or simply a colourful way for young and old alike to
brighten up the first meal of the day. It also goes great with various
cheeses, desserts and pâté.
    Plus, it's a unique holiday gift you can give as a stocking stuffer or
bring to your favourite party hosts this season.
    In all, over 100,000 double-tube packs of spread will be on sale during
the six-week promotion. All proceeds will be donated to the Quebec Breakfast
    "Last year, the sale of playing cards and memory games in all National
Bank of Canada branches was a tremendous success - collecting $300,000 for the
Club. Let's take concrete action once again to promote the well-being and
academic success of children, as well as encourage our families and friends to
do the same," stated Pierre Desbiens, Senior Vice-President, Sales and
Personal Banking and honorary president of the 2007 campaign.
    This holiday season, spread your generosity by supporting the Quebec
Breakfast Club's nutrition programs, helping to provide meals for thousands of
children. "Every time a child goes to class having eaten breakfast, I tell
myself that we're moving in the right direction. Unfortunately, there are
still thousands of children left to feed and that's why campaigns like these
are so important to us," expressed Daniel Germain, President and Founder of
the Quebec Breakfast Club.
