Rent-A-Center "Eggs" on Employees to sell Two Millionth Egg

This Lifestylist knows that Rent-A-Center leases a lot of great products for the home, but until this weekend I didn't know they sold eggs! I saw a great article on CNN Money the other day about how they are having a huge drive doing just this.

These are actually paper eggs that customers can buy for $1 with all proceeds going to Big Brother Big Sisters. In the past seven years Rent-A-Center has raised over $1.79 million dollars and with the help of  their great teams in local stores and loyal customers they hope to exceed the $2 million mark in 2010.

What is really neat is that money raised in each local area goes to those local Big Brother Big Sister chapters, and Rent-A-Center is matching individual donations dollar for dollar up to $100,000 with a guaranteed donation of $250.00 to each of the nearly 385 local agencies. The drive continues until April 3rd and you can find your local store here: www.rentacenter.com
