    Print For A Purpose Launches ‘Fight Poverty With Your Printer’ Campaign During the Annual Send My Friend to School Week
    Montague,
    MI  April  2006 — Print For A Purpose, a cause-driven retailer based
    in Michigan, announces the launch of the Fight Poverty With Your
    Printer campaign — kicking off officially on Monday, April 24, the
    first day of the Annual Send My Friend To School Week. The company is
    launching with an initial goal to raise $25 Million for
    poverty-fighting organizations over the next five years.“Over 100
    Million children around the world are not getting the education they
    need to increase their income potential, improve their farming
    practices, and stop the spread of disease,” says Mark Terpstra, founder
    of Print For A Purpose. “I experienced this first hand growing up in a
    farming village in Senegal (West Africa). Some of my boyhood friends
    didn’t attend school because they couldn’t afford to buy notebooks and
    pens.”That’s why Print For A Purpose is launching a national effort to
    raise money for education, microbusiness development and other poverty
    needs by selling print cartridges — a product millions of consumers
    purchase on a regular basis. For every cartridge purchased from the
    Print For A Purpose website or catalog, 5 to 10% of the purchase price
    is donated to nonprofit organizations that are fighting poverty.
    Buying
    one $20 cartridge from Print For A Purpose results in a $1 or $2
    donation (depending on the brand of cartridge purchased). In many
    countries, that’s enough to pay for year’s worth of notebooks and pens
    for one student. A businesses that spends $1,000 on cartridges over the
    course of a year will contribute an average of $75 — enough to pay for
    a whole year of primary school for an impoverished child.“Consumers
    spend $45 Billion on print cartridges every year,” says Terpstra. “This
    campaign is a small but practical way for these consumers to be engaged
    in the lives of the 1 billion people who live in extreme poverty. Our
    goal is to raise $5 million every year – that’s enough to send 65,000
    poor children to school every year. That is exciting to think
    about.”Consumers and nonprofits can join the campaign by visiting
