Burger King partners Mumbai Indians to encourage young girls

MUMBAI: This cricket season, Burger King has partnered with Mumbai Indians for its summer brand campaign ?Great Burgers at Amazing Prices?. 

In an endeavour to further strengthen the ongoing partnership and take it forward to a noble cause, Burger King took a step towards fulfilling its ?Sixes for Kings? programme. At an event held yesterday in the Churchgate outlet, Burger King pledged three meals for every six hit by the Mumbai Indians to the children of Avasara Leadership Foundation.

Uniting in the spirit of cricket, Burger King hosted an evening of fun and games for 30 children from Avasara Leadership Foundation with none other than Mumbai Indians legend Kieron Pollard, super player Mayank Markande and the most recent Man of the Match Ishan Kishan. The girls from the foundation were inspired after hearing the cricket stars speak about their own journeys towards achieving success. The engagement sought not only to motivate the young girls to pursue their dreams, but also leveraged the interest in IPL and cricket to raise awareness for the cause.

Burger King India CEO Rajeev Varman says, ?We are happy to have partnered with a team that shares the same passion as ours to drive a noble cause. Each six scored by Mumbai Indians has contributed in working towards a larger cause. Each six that sailed over the boundary will also help the girls believe that no boundary line is impossible to cross.?

Avasara Leadership Foundation founder Roopa Purushothaman adds, ?We are grateful to Burger King for organising such a memorable event for the children and their ongoing support to our organisation. The children truly cherished every moment spent with the cricketers.?

Burger King believes in setting up responsible models of social responsibility to contribute to the society. In addition to supporting Avasara, Burger King has in the past also supported Rooms to Read. Some of its initiatives include donating Re. 1 for the cause of girls? education, encouraging in-store donations over the years, to name a few.
