For every tin of gourmet popcorn purchased, Garrett Popcorn Shops will donate $2 to Save the Children. March 28th – April 6th.

Coastal communities in Japan are still reeling from the massive 9.0 magnitude earthquake and a tsunami that struck on March 11th, 2011 and created devastation on an unimaginable scale. In support of children affected by the devastating events in Japan, Garrett Popcorn Shops will donate $2 from every tin sold to Save the Children’s Japan Earthquake Tsunami Children in Emergency Fund.

Relief efforts for the Japan earthquake and tsunami continue to be hampered by the ongoing nuclear crisis, supply shortages and frigid temperatures. Save the Children carried out an exploratory mission north of hard-hit Sendai and found children living in desperate conditions.  Save the Children has opened the first child-friendly space in Japan, protective environments where children can gather to play and share their experiences under the supervision of trained, caring adults.

Save the Children is the leading independent organization creating lasting change for children in need in the United States and around the world. For more than 75 years, Save the Children has been helping children survive and thrive by improving their health, education and economic opportunities and, in times of acute crisis, mobilizing rapid life-saving assistance to help children recover from the effects of war, conflict and natural disasters. For more information about Save the Children visit www.savethechildren.org.

For every tin of flavored popcorn purchased, Garrett Popcorn Shops will donate $2 of the sale to Save the Children (up to $15,000.) The donation will be on the purchase of 1, 2, 3.5 or 6.5 gallon tins only and does not include popcorn bags, beverages, merchandise, or any other in-store or online products.
