JohnDow extends Caddy For A Cause Campaign

Supplier News

The fundraiser for breast cancer research has been extended through 2012.

| December 22, 2011

Barberton, Ohio  -  This August, JohnDow Industries, through its Fuel Chief brand introduced its fundraising campaign for Breast Cancer Research – Caddy For A Cause. The original plan was to conduct the campaign through the end of 2011 whereby JDI would contribute $10 to this research for every Fuel Chief Pro 25 - 25 Gallon Steel Gas Caddy (FC-25GC) sold during that period.  

This five-month effort has been extremely successful in 2011 providing a substantial contribution and convincing JDI management to extend the campaign for breast cancer research throughout the entire year of 2012.  

“We really did not know what to expect when we introduced the campaign this last August but the response has been exceptional,” said Joe Dease, president of JohnDow. “We continue to see Caddy For A Cause as a real vehicle that we can use as an organization to help fight this dreaded disease.”  

According to the American Cancer Society, every 23 seconds, someone in the world is diagnosed with breast cancer and every 69 seconds, someone dies from this horrific disease. JDI will continue to communicate the program with visibility through product packaging, JDI shirts, trade shows, sales flyers, the JDI website, email blasts, media releases, and distributor and rep communications.
