Kennesaw, GA (PressExposure) November 19, 2010 -- Nineteen-year-old entrepreneur Paige Born is racing the clock to raise $10,000 for The Salvation Army before Christmas through her company Eighty-Eight Percent. Aware of how many people will be turning to organizations for help this year because of the current economy she decided to make a difference with the sales of her light-hearted Christian bumper stickers.
Paige is a sophomore at Kennesaw State University where she was first introduced to a group called ECHO, a church-based organization for college students and young adults that combines worship with rock music. Surprised by her interest and passion to learn more, she came to realize how many people still believe in God. She started a company called Eighty-Eight Percent where she sells upbeat bumper stickers in an effort to spread the word while raising money for a cause.
Her stickers sell for $5 each through her website, http://www.EightyEightPercent.com, with a portion of all sales donated to The Salvation Army, and she is now hoping to reach her goal of $10,000 before the holidays in hopes of helping others when they need it the most.
Thanks to the internet and groups like facebook, her stickers are showing up from California to New York to Atlanta. For more information on her company or to purchase a sticker, please visit her site at http://www.EightyEightPercent.com.
