Hi, my name is Margaret Nemeth, and I am the owner of Primal grounds and Primal Soup Company. I can't wait to tell you about the great initiative we are involved in for international womens week (March 8-18)!

I have the pleasure of being part of a cooperative online shopping website, called Best of Calgary Foods, with 15 of my best female buddies who are all brilliant entrepreneurs and wonderful human beings. This year, for INTERNATIONAL WOMENS WEEK March 8-18, we have decided to do something special and close to our hearts! Each of us have chosen our favourite womens non-profit association to support and fundraise for.

We all know how important women supporting women is, as we have all overcome diversity and personal struggles and have come out on the other side, and we want to give back.

My choice is the Girls Hockey Calgary. Why, you ask?

I believe in empowering young women to succeed at whatever they enjoy doing- we are so lucky to be living in these times where women are celebrated and taught that they can be anyone they want to be.

The reason I chose to honour “Girls Hockey” is because it teaches important life skills outside the rink- setting goals, teamwork, dealing with setbacks, perseverance, work ethic and valuable networking skills...

So between March 8-18, Simply go to www.bestofcalgaryfoods.com, purchase a Best of Calgary Foods gift card and write in the Customer Notes section of your order “HOCKEY”. We will take care of the rest! We are donating 3% of gift card sales to girls hockey calgary, and I am personally matching another 3%. Yes, 6% of the gift card you purchase goes back to www.girlshockeycalgary.com (from March 8-18)!

In addition 10% of online soup sales will also be donated by Primal Soup Company to girls hockey calgary from March 8-18 ! 

Thank you for the continued support of my small business, and our efforts in supporting others.

Happy International Womens week!

Margaret Nemeth;
Primal Grounds Cafe's, Primal Soup Company, and Best of Calgary Foods
