TORONTO, March 19 /CNW/ - The Children's Aid Foundation (CAF) is pleased
to announce an exciting partnership with Coleman Gerard, a newly formed
t-shirt company featuring artwork designed by kids. Starting March 29, 2008 5%
of retail sales will be directed to the Children's Aid Foundation to establish
the Coleman Gerard Peace & Jam Enrichment Fund.
"Kids are at the core of Coleman Gerard and we are very proud to be
partnered with The Children's Aid Foundation. We realized that so many kids do
not have access to the most basic art supplies and have never enjoyed the
simple act of colouring in a box".
The Coleman Gerard Peace & Jam Enrichment Fund will provide the funding
to build confidence and self-esteem in abused, neglected and high risk kids
through programming that features creative and artistic activities.
Founded in 1979, the Children's Aid Foundation is a national charity
dedicated to improving the lives of abused, neglected and high-risk children
in Canada. The Foundation works with Children's Aid Societies and other child
welfare agencies across the country to fund prevention, enrichment and
The Children's Aid Foundation would like to thank Coleman Gerard for
their ingenuity in the creation of this partnership and for their generous
support of children in need.
