WhiteWave Foods Brands Promotion
BROOMFIELD, COLO. – From August 15, 2011 – January 15, 2012, when consumers buy specially marked bottles of Silk®, Horizon®, International Delight® and LAND O LAKES® products, and register the UPC code on those products at www.shareyourdelight.com, WhiteWave Foods will make a $.50 donation to one of two great causes – Toys for Tots or Coats for Kids. This is the first effort of its kind across their portfolio.
WhiteWave has committed to a guaranteed minimum donation of $25,000 per charity, and if enough consumers register their UPC codes, the donation has the potential to be as much as $100,000 per charity.
“At WhiteWave, we’ve always believed that drawing a connection between what we value and how we do business is essential to our success,” says Sara Mirelez, Vice President of Marketing for International Delight. “That’s why this holiday season we’re thrilled to partner with two organizations that help make children’s lives better.”
For 64 years Marines have fulfilled the holiday dreams of our nation’s neediest children through the Toys for Tots program. The toys and special gifts the children receive offer hope, recognition and a positive memory for a lifetime. The program reaches over 7 million children annually.
The Coats for Kids Foundation a service of Operation Warm believes every kid in need deserves a new winter coat of their very own. Since its inception, Coats for Kids and Operation Warm have delivered over 770,000 new winter coats to children in need and will reach its millionth child by the end of the 2011 coat distribution season.
