Zebra Publishing rallies around Sept. 11 victims. (9/11 Tributes).
TORONTO -- In a coordinated, multi-tiered effort following Sept. 11, Zebra Publishing produced a special 2002 Stars and Stripes calendar that has raised $65,000 for emergency relief and financial assistance for family of the victims.
"We wanted to do something to support the people affected by this terrible tragedy," said Paul Perkins, president of Zebra Publishing Corp., which produces a collection of more than 90 calendar titles each year on various topics ranging from art to animals. "In the weeks following the tragedy, our dedicated staff at Zebra accomplished no small feat in designing, printing and distributing the Stars and Stripes calendar throughout North America."
Retailers across North America participated in a four-month calendar-selling campaign that began shortly after Sept. 11. Now the total $65,000 profit from the sale of this calendar is being sent in two separate checks to support both the American Red Cross and the N.Y. Firefighters 9-11 Disaster Relief Fund.
Zebra officials say their retail associates, including the Calendar Club L.L.C., Barnes and Noble and the Borders Group, helped them reach their goal. For more information, call (416) 293-3134 x270.
