Date:8/12/2014

NOVATO, CALIF. (PRWEB) August 12, 2014

The Republic of Tea, leading purveyor of premium teas, is thrilled to announce that it has surpassed the $500,000 donation mark to the Prostate Cancer Foundation (PCF) with sales from its Blueberry Green Superfruit™ Tea. The Republic of Tea currently donates $1 from the sale of each full-size tin and $0.36 from the sale of each traveler’s tin directly to PCF. As of August 4, 2014, The Republic of Tea has donated $531,187.47 to the Foundation.

“The Republic of Tea is a role model for corporate stewardship,” comments Jonathan W. Simons, MD, president and CEO of the Prostate Cancer Foundation. “One of the major reasons we treasure this relationship is The Republic of Tea’s enduring support of young, innovative scientists.”

PCF is committed to accelerating ground-breaking research in prostate cancer. The Foundation has brought about many of the recent scientific advances in prostate cancer research leading to better therapies. The funds received from The Republic of Tea allow scientists to explore treatment methods to lengthen and save lives. PCF identifies and invests in the most promising research programs—projects that other organizations may deem “high-risk,” but offer the greatest reward in terms of improved detection, enhanced quality of life, and higher survival rates.

“With one out of every seven American men diagnosed with prostate cancer, we’re honored to help further the efforts of the leading Foundation in prostate cancer research,” says Ron Rubin, Minister of Tea. “It is our goal that our Blueberry Green Tea continues to encourage men and their families to sip for change and provide hope for healthier, longer lives.”

The Republic of Tea’s gluten-free, sugar- free Blueberry Green Tea offers the experience of freshly plucked green tea and juicy, succulent blueberries - the USDA Human Nutrition Center has ranked blueberries number one in antioxidant activity. The tea, which is an ideal way to help raise awareness for the Foundation (especially during Prostate Cancer Awareness Month in September), is available in select specialty food retailers throughout the U.S., online at http://www.republicoftea.com, via mail order catalog, and by calling 800.298.4TEA(832).
