Think Beyond the Chip… Guac Saves Charities Too

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - December 17, 2014) - Yucatan Guacamole kicked off the holiday giving season with a fun twist that goes beyond the chip and includes an entire community of giving. Yucatan launched the Yucatan Cares GUAC SAVES T-shirt, a creative and fun way to raise donations for consumer-suggested charities, including this month's charity of choice, Toys for Tots.

Through the month of December, for every GUAC SAVES T-shirt sold online, Yucatan will donate 100 percent of proceeds to Toys for Tots to provide toys, books and other gifts to less fortunate children.

"Toys for Tots is an initiative that has been close to the heart of Yucatan for years, and we are proud to support this awesome cause with our GUAC SAVES t-shirts," said Jessica Brown, Director of Marketing for Yucatan Foods. "As a company, we have always believed in giving back to the communities we serve. Now Yucatan's community can get involved too."

Featuring Yucatan's famous avocado, the GUAC SAVES T-shirt is a beyond-the-chip idea to raise awareness, increase community involvement and have some fun too. Each month, Yucatan will feature a charity or organization on the Yucatan Cares giving community, either submitted by the company's passionate consumers or suggested by Yucatan itself. All proceeds from the sales of GUAC SAVES T-shirts will be donated to that organization. To nominate a charity to be featured on Yucatan Cares, go to http://www.yucatancares.com/chunkycharities.

"We created Yucatan Cares to be the home for Yucatan's community of giving," Brown said. "What better way to promote community giving than to have our community nominate their favorite charities."

The Yucatan Cares GUAC SAVES T-shirt costs $15 each, comes with two coupons for free Yucatan Guacamole, and is delivered free of charge.
