Feb. 1, 2011 - PRLog -- The program designates 5% of the sales of specially-marked items towards a featured charity which rotates from month to month.  Charities benefiting from the program include The National Wildlife Federation (in direct response to the Gulf Oil Spill), Adopt-a-Classroom, The National Breast Cancer Foundation, Whole Planet Foundation, and Variety the Children’s Charity.
Customer support of the charitable program is notable, as evidenced by the increase in sales of the special roll category during the promotions. “To us, this indicates that our customers care about social issues, and that they want to support businesses which contribute to altruistic organizations,” states Shingo Kanai, CEO and President of Genji, Inc.
Genji will continue the “Special Roll for A Special Cause” program in 2011.  

In February, in honor of Black History Month, Genji will feature the Black Culinary Alliance, whose mission is to create exposure and provide educational and professional opportunities for culinary and hospitality professionals of color.
