Tins of cranberry cookies for National Bank’s 8th fundraising campaign for the Breakfast Clubs

Indulge in some cookies for a good cause!
“Looking back at the rush the campaign generated two years ago, I suggest people visit a National Bank branch sooner rather than later because those tins of irresistible cookies will be gone in no time!” said Daniel Germain, Founding President of the Club des petits déjeuners du Québec and Breakfast Clubs of Canada.

A delicious and practical holiday gift
The 8th fundraising campaign for the Club des petits déjeuners du Québec and the Breakfast Clubs of Canada takes place just when people are looking for easy-to-give and pleasant-to-receive gifts. This year, National Bank is selling a cute tin filled with delicious cranberry cookies baked by La Petite Bretonne. What’s more, the tin can be re-used as a practical coin saver long after the treats are gone.

At $5 a piece, this is a great way to make people happy. Until December 31, 2012, just go to one of National Bank’s 448 branches across the country to purchase your tin of cookies.

Helping schoolchildren start their day off right
In founding the Club des petits déjeuners du Québec and Breakfast Clubs of Canada, Daniel Germain’s intent was to provide a nutritious breakfast to children coming to school on an empty stomach. He wanted to offer them an equal chance at success in school and in life.

Last year, thanks to donations received and many partnerships, 11,500 breakfast club volunteers served 18 million breakfasts to 119,000 students in 1,170 schools across Canada. In Quebec alone, 3,500 volunteers served up 2.5 million breakfasts to 18,000 youngsters in 289 schools.

Hurry to a National Bank branch to get your tin of cookies! Each tin costs $5 and all profits go to the Breakfast Clubs.

Don’t delay! The cookies are only on sale until December 31, 2012.

Happy Holidays!

Giving all children an equal chance to succeed, an important cause for Joël Legendre
Joël Legendre, host at Rouge FM, a French-language radio station, proudly agreed to serve as campaign spokesperson for a second year running. “The campaign was a great success last year and I am delighted to once more be involved with the Clubs and National Bank to give all children an equal chance to succeed. Our children are our future and I want to help them along the way. The Club gives children a healthy start to their day and I am pleased to do my part.”

La Petite Bretonne, a family business
Established in 1966, La Petite Bretonne is a business owned and operated by the Bohec family, which prides itself on offering a range of quality products that appeal to all. The company’s products are sold in grocery stores in Canada, the United States, Mexico, and even in the Caribbean, and it is best-known for its popular Micro Croissants®.

“We are very pleased to be associated with this year’s campaign, especially as we’ve been supplying the Clubs with mini-croissants for the past 14 years. When I was asked to take part, I didn’t think twice about making my staff, factory, packing and distribution facilities available for a whole week. I hope that the public enjoys the cookies,” said Dominique Bohec, Vice-President of sales at La Petite Bretonne.
