Over $12,000 Raised for Nepal!

On April 25, a devastating earthquake struck Nepal and the surrounding region. With many aftershocks, and another earthquake that hit just two weeks later, the region is in dire need of aid.

On May 8, our staff offered their day’s tips to be donated to the Canadian Red Cross Nepal Region Earthquake Fund. JJ would match the day’s total, up to $2,500. The Canadian Federal Government would then match our grand total—which we hoped would add up to $10,000.

Well, thanks only to the generosity of our incredible customers throughout the city, our stores collectively received $3,899 in donation-tips. Which means with JJ $2,500 and the Government matching, we surpassed our goal: $12,798 will be going to support the Canadian Red Cross’ efforts in Nepal!

You, our customers, are why we exist. Thank you for supporting us, and all of our initiatives—we couldn’t achieve our goals without you.

Sincerely,

Team JJ Bean
