I recently heard about this fundraiser, and I am absolutely loving the idea.  Returns for Leukemia Research — a weekend where customers are invited to donate all or a portion of their empty bottle refunds at The Beer Store to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada.

Returns for Leukemia Research will be happening on May 24 and 25 this year and is a fundraising initiative of the Beer Store and its employee union UFCW Local 12R24.  100% of the funds go directly to the charity.  Last year they raised $500,000….wow!

Remember, beer, wine and spirits bottles can be donated.  Check out www.bottledrive.ca for more info and if you’d like to be a volunteer.

I wonder how many bottles it will take to raise more than $500,000?   Anyone know? Guesses?

  3. Can you imagine if everyone with beer, wine and spirit containers in their home dropped by The Beer Store in their community on May 24 & 25 to donate their empties . . . we would raise a lot of money! 100 per cent of the funds collected from empties goes directly to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada. Your returns will help make big gains in the search for a cure for blood cancers.
