Owners of Booster Juice Location in Airdrie Announce Haiti Fundraiser on Jan 25th

AIRDRIE, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Jan. 22, 2010) - As owners of the Booster Juice location in Airdrie, my wife and I are looking to raise awareness of a local story about a fundraiser we are doing on Jan 25th to raise money for the Haiti Red Cross fund. Our main purpose is to create awareness about Haiti and show that everyone can help.

Our family felt it was our responsibility to do our part to try and help the Haiti people in this terrible time. One of our boys noticed the picture on our fridge of Jerry, our 11 yr old World Vision Sponsor Boy and remembered he was from Haiti. After realizing that he was not only from Haiti but from Port-au-Prince they became deeply concerned and saddened at the thought of him and his family losing everything and quite possibly their lives.

We started discussing what we could do to raise money and came up with an idea to do a fund raiser through our business. We are planning to donate 100% of our sales revenue for the day from our Airdrie Booster Juice location (103, 505 Main St. Airdrie) on Monday Jan 25th. We have tried to put this together in a very short time and have received amazing support from local businesses for signs, posters and advertising to try and make this as successful as possible. Our goal is to raise about $5000.00 for the day. We will also have a Red Cross donation Box if people would like to add any extra funds.

We feel it is our privilege to have a vehicle to put this together and hope that it is very successful. Thanks for your consideration to help remind people a lot still has to be done.
