Houston, TX, October 26, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Houston, Spring, and The Woodlands communities joined Amazing Spaces® Storage Centers to show how easily an individual can “Make a Difference” in a child’s life. The Texas Self Storage Association launched the “Make a Difference” state-wide campaign to emphasize the contributions made by self storage owners in their communities and to highlight the partnership with Shriners Children’s Hospital in Galveston. Amazing Spaces Storage Centers and the Texas Self Storage Association (TSSA) have supported the work of the Shriners Children’s Hospital for the past seven years. Donations to the Hospital surpassed the $230,000 mark in 2009. Self storage facilities across the state are using as their inspiration the story of the young girl furiously throwing starfish back into the ocean as the tide recedes. While others may scoff at the futility of the task, the young girl goes on undaunted wanting to make a difference to at least one starfish. The story illustrates that while one person cannot possibly save the millions of starfish on the beach, with just a little effort one person can affect one life.
“We are always so excited each year to help this wonderful charity that has been providing a wonderful service to children in our area since 1960,” said Kathy Tautenhahn, Marketing Director. This year Amazing Spaces matched dollar for dollar the money raised at each of their locations to double the amount raised. All proceeds go directly to the Shriners Hospital for Children in Galveston. The 2010 TSSA Make a Difference campaign ended at the annual convention that was held in Fort Worth from October 17 – 20, 2010.
