Glacial Energy, one of the fastest growing retail energy suppliers in the US, is proud to be participating in a silent auction hosted by Granite City Electric Supply Company to help raise money for the Be Like Brit organization where 100% of the proceeds from this auction will go directly to the cause.
Be Like Brit is currently working to build an orphanage for the many Haitian children in need of shelter, love and guidance. The organization was formed when 19-year old Britney Gengel died during the January 2010 catastrophic earthquake that claimed over 230,000 lives and left 2,000,000 homeless. Britney had been in Haiti for less than a day before the earthquake hit and was there to volunteer at a small Haitian orphanage. Only 3 hours before the devastation, she texted her family – “They love us so much and everyone is so happy. They love what they have and they work so hard to get nowhere, yet they are all so appreciative. I want to move here and start an orphanage myself.”
In Britney’s memory, her family has started the non-profit organization Be Like Brit to build the orphanage that she wanted for these children. Glacial Energy feels privileged to be part of such an honorable organization.
Glacial Energy is currently selling power and serving commercial, industrial and institutional customers in 16 deregulated markets. Visit www.glacialenergy.com for more information; also follow Glacial Energy on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.
