TORONTO, Nov. 17, 2014 /CNW/ - The following B-Roll is available by Video On-Demand web download:
Tim Hortons "yarn-bombs" its mobile coffee truck, the TimsRunner to celebrate the launch of Tim Hortons new #WarmWishes holiday cups and social media campaign encouraging Canadians to do good for others this holiday season.
The TimsRunner "sweater", created by Toronto-based, Lettuce Knit, required a team of 35 knitters, 450 skeins of yarn, and nearly 1,000 hours of knitting time. Once the yarn is removed from the TimsRunner it will be washed, felted and repurposed into over 30 blankets to be donated to Covenant House.
The TimsRunner will be spreading warmth to Torontonians today, offering passersby free Tim Hortons Dark Roast coffee.
