Jamieson invites Canadians to cast a vote in annual “Call For The Wild!” campaign

Toronto, Ontario (August 16, 2011) — Today, Jamieson Laboratories launches Call for the Wild! The campaign, which runs until September 18, 2011, is a people’s choice donation program that will distribute $100,000 to five outstanding Canadian wildlife protection organizations (see below).

Call for the Wild! will increase awareness about the protection, rescue and rehabilitation of Canada’s wildlife. Throughout the five-week Jamieson Cares Facebook campaign, visitors can learn about the important work of each organization, watch videos of the groups in action and ask questions through social media. “For over 40 years, Jamieson has fought to protect animals and the environment,” says company Chairman Eric Margolis. “We actively support wildlife initiatives. With Call for the Wild!, our goal is to increase public awareness and compassion about the challenges wild animals face, often as a result of human interference.”

As they learn about the unique contribution of each wildlife organization, Canadians will be invited to cast a vote for their favourite. Every vote will translate into a proportional donation from Jamieson Laboratories. The company has earmarked $100,000 to support the 2011

Call for the Wild! campaign. “Our commitment to wellness naturally extends to wildlife species,” continues Margolis. “We can only be as healthy as the wildlife and environment around us. Jamieson is proud to support the tireless efforts of these organizations that protect and rehabilitate our iconic animal species.”
