Avril Lavigne joins Safeway disability support campaign

PLESANTON, Calif. — Safeway has partnered with singer/songwriter Avril Lavigne for a new, exclusive video to support its annual Support for People with Disabilities fundraising campaign to benefit Easter Seals, Special Olympics and an array of organizations that help people with disabilities live fuller, more independent lives.

"We are honored to be working with Avril Lavigne to build even more excitement for our disabilities campaign and give our customers something unique as a thank you for their support – exclusive access to go behind the scenes with Avril," said Larree Renda, Safeway EVP and chair of the Safeway Foundation.

When customers enter any Safeway, Vons, Pavilions, Tom Thumb, Randalls, Dominick's or Carrs store through April 30, they should look for the "Behind the Scenes with Avril Lavigne" signs near each store's entrance, grab a tear-card from the sign and bring it to the register to make a $5 donation at checkout to support services for children and adults living with disabilities. Those customers will be given a coupon and code to view exclusive videos of Avril Lavigne on tour, behind the scenes, performing from her dressing room and visiting Easter Seals programs for kids with disabilities. There's also an exclusive acoustic version of one of the singer's most popular songs.
