LOS ANGELES, Nov. 2 STANDUP FOR KIDS has been chosen by STAR OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD's "Featured Charity" program where thousands of local businesses are being asked to join forces for charity www.starkart.net/charity. Momentum is building in preparation for November's National Homeless Youth Awareness Month. Local business owners throughout the country, who are doing business with STAR OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD, are displaying posters and encouraging their customers to donate.
The "Calling an End to Youth Homelessness" campaign has these businesses collecting old cell phones or urging patrons to text HUNGRY to 85944 and make a $5.00 donation. These participating businesses can be found by visiting www.starkart.net/charity. In addition, for each STARKART grocery ad sold in the fourth quarter of 2009, STAR OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD will make a contribution.
Each quarter, STAR OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD unites local businesses with charities to raise awareness and donations. "The goal is to harness the extraordinary power of the more than forty million local businesses throughout North America to give support to these charities," said Jeffrey Rosenthal, CEO of STAR OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD.
