100 per cent of Tim Hortons Smile Cookie sales support more than 350 local charities across Canada
OAKVILLE, ON, Sept. 14, 2015 /CNW/ - Tim Hortons annual Smile Cookie campaign is back to bring even more smiles to communities across Canada. Starting today for one week, Tim Hortons guests can purchase a freshly baked chocolate chunk Smile Cookie for $1 plus tax at participating restaurants, with 100 per cent of the proceeds being donated by Tim Hortons restaurant owners to support local charities, hospitals and community programs.
"The simple act of buying a Smile Cookie for one dollar will have a direct impact on charities in your own community," says David Clanachan, President and Chief Operating Officer, Tim Hortons Canada. "Through the generosity of our guests and restaurant owners year after year, we continue to raise millions of dollars to help hundreds of deserving local charities."
The Smile Cookie campaign started in 1996 to help raise funds for the Hamilton Children's Hospital in Ontario and has grown to become a major fundraising event at Tim Hortons restaurants. With blue eyes and a pink smile, the Smile Cookie has become an iconic symbol of the commitment of Tim Hortons guests and restaurant owners to strengthen their communities. Last year, the campaign raised $5.3 million across Canada and supported more than 350 local charities.
