Cinnabon the world famous cinnamon roll franchise has helped a group of Sharjah American International School teachers raise funds for survivors of the recent Pakistani floods.
Supplying rolls, coffee, tea and soft drinks from a purpose built Cinnabon kiosk set up at the fundraising event, Cinnabon agreed to donate 65% of all sales made on the above items to those affected by the Pakistani floods. On top of this, Cinnabon also sold vouchers for AED10 each at the kiosk, with all of the proceeds going to flood survivors. Patrons can use these vouchers to get free Minibons at any Cinnabon store in the UAE.
According to Cravia CEO, Walid Hajj Cinnabon understands the importance of community involvement, and is honoured to be helping raise money for the brave survivors of the Pakistani floods.
According to the latest media reports, Pakistan's worst floods in recorded history have killed more than 1,750 people and affected 20 million - more than a tenth of the population.
Speaking about Cinnabons donation, Sharjah American International School teacher, Tami Khan said: I am ecstatic with this generous contribution from Cinnabon and thank them for the support they have shown our school and the people of Pakistan.
Khan says the school held the fundraiser on 30 September and added that all collected money will be sent to survivors of the flood through UNICEF.
