Ontario Principals Conference
TORONTO, ON, Sheraton Centre Hotel, ‘Odyssey 2006’ Show – November 23, 2006 — Clean Freak Patrol Ltd. enrolled over 100 schools in the ‘Germ Elimination Contest’ at the Ontario Principals’ Council ‘Odyssey 2006’ Show (www.principals.on.ca) – this year’s professional development conference for Ontario school principals and vice-principals.
Designed in collaboration with The Creative Marketing Network (www.starcmn.com) and Toronto Agency Giant Step (www.giantstep.ca), the National Contest uses an ‘viral’ online word-of-mouth marketing approach and encourages children to spread the word about good hygiene and proper hand washing techniques, offering fun prize incentives for participating students and their schools.
Clean Freak Patrol also introduced educators to a new school fundraising product available exclusively to schools until January 31, 2007. Participating schools have the opportunity to purchase a variety of clip-on hand sanitizing gel packs. The kid friendly gel packs feature four loveable cartoon superheroes: Combat, Missy, Karate and Princess Fairy, who together form the Clean Freak Patrol. The pleasantly scented sanitizing hand gel contains no alcohol, is gentle on hands, works without water and is safe for even sensitive skin. The special pre-retail offer comes in boxes containing 24 KIDS HAND GEL clip-ons (retail selling price $2.49 for each clip-on with up to 50% of the sale going to the participating school).
Clean Freak Patrol products will be available in most major retail stores early 2007. For more information about Clean Freak Patrol and the Fundraising Opportunities, contact Michael Morris, President at 416-332-8794 x 229 or email email@example.com
