TORONTO, CANADA, December 19, 2008 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Passion Campaign is an awareness initiative developed on the belief that the people, small businesses and corporations of the Greater Toronto Area have no limits when it comes to their generosity in supporting the needs of the homeless, less fortunate or working poor in our great city.

While we are launching this awareness campaign during the holiday period, the main purpose is to raise awareness of the plight of these individuals all year round. However, it is at this particular time of year that their needs are at their greatest.

The Passion Campaign has identified thirteen charitable organizations whose primary focus is to help those in need without regard to their creed, religion, colour or any other identifying attributes. Here is a list of the thirteen charity organizations that will benefit from your support of The Passion Campaign ; "Helping feed the homeless and less fortunate every day" (in Alphabetical order)

100% of all The Passion Campaign Calendar sales goes directly to the list of charities. Show your compassion. Visit today or call 416-618-8776 to make a donation that will make a difference.

The Passion Campaign is based on the presumption that all people are equal and deserve to be treated as such, without regard to their socio-economic standing in the community. It is our core belief that the individuals that we propose to support deserve compassion, empathy and understanding, not sympathy.

The initial phase of the campaign involves the selling of 5,000 calendars at a cost of $15.00 per calendar. The purchaser of the calendar will be able to allocate 100% of the entire purchase price to the charity of their choosing. These calendars have all been professionally produced and show beautiful scenes from across Canada.

The Passion Campaign has been created by Mr. Donald (Don) W. Bremner with the support of his group of companies Restoration Environmental Contractors (REC), REC Demolition REC Disaster and Abcott Construction. These companies have generously underwritten all the costs of production to ensure that the maximum amount of support is directed to the individuals who need support through the charities noted above.

We would also like to thank the following individuals who have so unselfishly and with open hearts either contributed their time, products, services or support for the good of the campaign; Keith Levit of Keith Levit Photography, Reverend Andrew Allan of Toronto Christian Resource Centre / Regent Park , Teresa Rolt of Trolt Creativity by Design, Superior Printing & Litho Inc. and Gary Dumbleton Web Design.

Our only desire is that this "awareness initiative" succeeds and provides the support that is so desperately needed during these tough economic times.

We look forward to your support in helping us raise the awareness of the needs of the less fortunate, the homeless, and the poor people of GTA.

Together with your help and support, we can all help make a difference.

We are also donating a total of 3,000 jars of organic peanut butter to be divided between the thirteen charities listed, and the Markham, Brantford and Toronto Daily Food Banks, thanks to Dwight and Philip Dehne of Nutco Inc.

"We would especially like to truly thank all our loyal customers for their support. Of course, a special thanks to all our dedicated employees and partners, whom work safely every day, they are some of the most innovative and talented in the construction, demolition, environmental remediation industry" states Don. Bremner was the former Owner of The Markham Waxers Junior "A" Hockey Club from 1994-2005. Don founded his company with only $80.00 and a dream.
