Popular home retailer collaborates with Starlight Children’s FoundationTM Canada to help out families in need.
TORONTO, ON (December 1, 2015)– Just in time for the holidays, Bouclair, in partnership with Starlight Children’s Foundation Canada, has launched a brand new fundraising campaign in-stores, highlighting #OscarTheNutcracker, a chic $2.00 holiday decoration fit for any home. The campaign, which runs until December 22, 2015, allows Bouclair customers to purchase Oscar in-store for two dollars, with all proceeds going directly to Starlight Canada.
In addition to selling Oscar, Bouclair has also launched an online contest which encourages #OscarTheNutcracker owners to snap a photo of their purchase in a creative and original setting and share their photos on social media. After the campaign is complete, a committee will scour the Internet to identify the most stylish submission. Bouclair will then award the winning photographer a $1000 Bouclair giftcard.
“Starlight is very grateful for the generosity of Bouclair and their customers,” said Starlight Canada’s Executive Director, Brian Bringolf. “The holidays can be a difficult time for families battling serious illness and we look forward to putting smiles on even more faces of Starlight children thanks to Bouclair’s support this season.”
Over the next month, Bouclair employees will act as Starlight Canada ambassadors, raising awareness in-store for the charity. Proceeds raised from #OscarTheNutcracker sales will be donated to Starlight Canada to assist in brightening the lives of seriously ill children through a variety of in and out-of-hospital programs.
“Bouclair is proud to partner with the Starlight Children’s Foundation this Holiday season,” says Bouclair media coordinator Vickie Maxwell. “We hope that Oscar the nutcracker will find its way to many homes this year and that our Instagram contest will help the Foundation to continue doing great work throughout Canada. It’s the time of year to share and be thankful for what we have and we are happy to be part of a great wave of smiles for children all over.”
Customers are able to purchase their very own #OscarTheNutcracker by visiting their local Bouclair stores across the country.
