Santa Cruz Organic has launched an online promotion to promote its line of organic lemonade beverages in the US.
The company hopes to raise up to US$20,000 for the Feeding America hunger-relief charity. Santa Cruz Organic is one of many beverage companies aiming to carve out a niche in a soft drinks industry that some believe has reached saturation.

CHICO, Calif., June 21, 2012
This summer Santa Cruz Organic will celebrate good deeds and the spirit of helping others with the launch of the Sweet Deed Society at www.facebook.com/santacruzorganic.

To help acknowledge their good deed, the nominee can also accept their nomination, join the Sweet Deed Society and be entered for their own chance to win.
